Room Renovation: Laundry Room Week 5
Well, here we are at week 5 of our laundry room renovation! These past 5 weeks have flown by, next week will be our big reveal week & I can’t wait! If you are just joining us now, we are participating in our first One Room Challenge! This is an amazing opportunity for fellow bloggers to come together & take on a room renovation in only 6 weeks. This fall, Better Homes & Gardens is sponsoring the challenge & there are so many talented bloggers taking on room renovations! I can’t wait to see how everyone’s designs come to life.
We chose the laundry for this renovation because it was really dreary & not a place I love to spend my time. We wanted to make the room more functional & appealing so maybe everyone would have clothes to wear! I feel that’s a bonus when going out in public. Justin & I have been making great progress so far & only have a few things left on our list. This week I made our custom laundry room sign & I absolutely love how it turned out! I also have our folding/rolling cart almost complete.

Laundry Room Sign
The goal budget for our project is $500 & honestly I spent a tad more on our sliding barn doors then I anticipated… so the original sign I found & loved loved loved on Amazon was a no go. So I decided to make my own & it only cost me about $10, if there was any time for a happy dance it would be now! Not only was my DIY sign super budget-friendly, but it was also easy peasy.
- Paint Grade Panel
- 1X2X8 Whitewood Board
- Black Spray Paint
- Vinyl or Stencils
- Finishing Nails
- Wood Glue
- The first thing I did was paint my panel with black spray paint I had laying around. While that was drying I cut the 1X2X8 into 4 pieces to go around the panel.
- After I cut the 4 pieces I stained them with the same stain I used on the shelves in week 3.
- Then, I fit the 4 pieces around the panel, applied wood glue l & held them into place with clamps. Then I secured them with a few finishing nails.
- After everything was in place I printed out the vinyl lettering I wanted & applied it to my panel. If you don’t have a Circuit then you could use some cool stencils (like this one).
That’s it! Super simple DIY frame, most of the supplies I already had laying around the house so this sign only cost me about $10! Another project complete & we are almost ready for the reveal.
