Good Afternoon! Did you see my post this morning? Are you curious about what I made that took me less than an hour? Here ya go…
I know some might think this looks like I did this in grade school (laugh) but I like it. Art is in the eye of the beholder. And this makes me happy. Besides, it brightens my laundry room up.
Here’s my inspirations. I apologize for not being able to provide a link on the left. I had pinned it to my DIY and Craft Inspiration Board on Pinterest, but when trying to open my virus ware blocked it as a potential spam site. The picture on the right is wrapping paper and I just love the bright flowers.
So I grabbed my supplies…
- canvas art board
- circle stencil
- painter pens (I used ones by Decor)
I actually did this twice, but each time was less than an hour to make. The first time I did the circles, was not happy, tried to make flowers out if it, then hated it.
Thank goodness for Rust Oleum semi-gloss white spray paint. Another fresh canvas and I was happy. I also decided to add a few colorful buttons. I hung the picture in my laundry room next to my welcome sign and a picture I’ve had for over 20 years. That’s a tea towel that Hubby and I brought back from Australia and we framed it.
Have you been creative lately?

The time is going way to fast. The weather has just recently started to become a enter the hold pattern of sunny days and that makes me ever so happy. The last couple of weeks I’ve been updating the laundry room; paint, new rugs, organize cupboards, etc. I’m hoping to share it in it’s finished stage later this week.
A laundry rooms should be happy, right? After all, how much do we ladies spend in there? Since young son left for college I do much less wash and clothes folding. We almost always but we normally enter and leave through the garage and so does everyone else. I decided to fill the walls with bright and cheery items and only if they make me smile. Like this:
My son, the senior-to-be in college, took a wood shop class in in his junior year of high school. One of his projects was a welcome sign. He took a piece of wood and sanded it down in areas on the board so the letters were raised. It’s not accurate, the letters are thin in some places, thick in others. Some of the letters are a bit crooked. That’s what I love about this sign. It has character. It looked like this in the beginning:
I used white primer and gloss white spray paint from Rustoleum to make it all white. Then I grabbed my jar full of painter pens. I made each letter a different color and pattern. For instance, the W is filled with Xs and the O is full of circles. I thought about making every letter solid and who knows I may change it later, but for know I really like it. I’m excited to hang it on the wall.
I love projects that are simple and quick and have a memory. What about you? Do you have projects or crafts that you’ve done that fit this description?
Happy Day 27.
We’re on the downside of the 31 days. I finally finished decluttering and organizing the laundry room. It took me 3 different “go for its”. I do still have to paint and I’d like to get a new rug and curtains. But…I can go to the cupboards and find anything…
Love my Paddington Bear dressed in his raincoat and galoshes. Had to keep him. I also like my laundry cleaners and sprays in plain sight so I found a cute basket.
Every container labeled = heaven.
Organizing clutter makes me feel so good. A completed project just makes me want to do more. Tune in tomorrow to see my list of what I still have to do around the house.
And thanks to Word Press. I logged on to the site today and saw my blog is Featured by Word Press
Happy Day 19 Everyone. If your along with me in the 31 days to clutter free we’ve accomplished much!
I made it through the 3 bathrooms. Today after work I will be going through the laundry room. That will be both a challenge and an opportunity. It’s where all the cleaners are stored. We also normally enter our house through the garage so I need to find a way for it to not be a dumping ground. If you’re going through your laundry room today think about how much time you spend in there. I’m not yet sure what I’ll do yet, but I’m taking my inspiration from the following pics brought to you by Pinterest.
Use a shower caddy under the sink for cleaning products.
A munch prettier way to house laundry soap.
I want mine to look like these…
Have fun today! Pics tomorrow!
