Finders, keepers! The chore of doing laundry just got a bit easier with a functional laundry room sign that is not only stylish but also stores loose change and odd socks.
Use a wooden board, paint and supplies left over from other projects to make it an inexpensive craft. You may have to spring for a hose clamp but that costs only a dollar or two.
You’ll need access to a laser printer to transfer our printable—your local print shop or office supply will have one if you don’t. Once you’ve made the transfer, the rest is a snap!
