Just another way to use a washboard.

I needed more storage in my laundry room, so built some truly "rustic" corner cabinets. After extensive searching, I was able to locate 2 new washboards to use as the doors on the corner cabinets.

    Susan, that's not fabric......................that's paint. I created the plaid w/acrylic paints. The pink is the latex paint I used on the laundry room door. Glad you like it.

    YOU PAINTED THE PLAID - Wow, now that is truly impressive!! I just assumed it was fabric it's soooo perfect! Did you tape all that off or how did you get the lines so even? Care to elaborate????

    Thanks Susan. I just penciled in lines for where I wanted the different colors and free-handed. Those colors I wanted to appear as though they were woven under the fabric, making another color dominant in that area, I simply dry brushed w/the pink, or whatever color it was becoming recessive to, immitating the threads in woven fabric.

    Well I sure am impressed! I've done enough painting to know that plaid is not easy to do!! And here you've been hiding your talent from us! Ha - what else have you been holding back from us?????
