In a few weeks (I hope) I will be able to share with you the completed laundry room remodel! I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel on that project. When I say tunnel, I mean it. Located as a breezeway between the garage and the kitchen, most of our closets are larger than this room. Anyhoo, I am excited to share a bit of a sneak peek with you guys in the form of a silhouette cameo project. And just to make this so much more awesome, I have joined with several bloggy friends in a challenge involving our silhouette machines.
Ok, ok, but I am getting ahead of myself here. The first thing I did was to paint a piece of scrap wood we had in the garage. Ya’ll know how much I love my scrap bin, right? Yep, another scrap board project, lol. I painted the board in with some of my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. This board received two coats of Paris Grey and one coat of Pure White which I distressed lightly with sandpaper and steel wool. Oh, wait, I gotta back up….this is my first chalk paint project! I know I am late on the chalk paint band wagon but I refused to use the stuff until I saw it in person. I was in a cutesy little shop in Dickson (tiny small country town), TN that specialized in chalk painted furniture. While I won’t say I was blown away because my style differed somewhat from the shop owner, I was sold enough to buy some for a few projects I have planned.
I think I had too much caffine this morning so pardon the interruption. Back to today’s project. Using my silhoutte cameo, I created the Laundry Room stencil. The fonts I used, Birmingham and KG Manhattan Script, are free for personal use. The little flourishes are part of KG Flavors and Frames Font. I used vinyl for this stencil because I have a lot of it, but silhouette does make a stencil material that would be good to use.
I wanted my sign to look like I painted the letters over an old sign rather than be part of it, so I did not distress after painting the letters.
The laundry room is almost finished but we have a few projects going on simultaneously (gallery wall and DIY artwork FTW!). Oh, and I kind of volun-told hubby to build a table so I think it will be a few more weeks before we completely finish the laundry room.
