I started out by printing letters spelling out "Laundry" in Roman Numeral font and placed them downward

I purchased a package of Carbon Paper for only $4.00 at Staples which I placed under my printed lettering using a pencil, you can also use a red pen so you know where you have outlined your text

It transferred perfectly onto my piece of wood …. you can also re-use the carbon paper for other projects

I used a "Fine Point" Marker to outline the letters as it allowed me to draw straight lines and also used a ruler to make my lines straight

After I outlined the lettering with Fine Point marker I then used a fine paint brush to colour it in with black paint. Any craft paint works great, also from dollar store

I just bought a wooded hanger from dollar store, painted it black and sanded the edges to make it look aged and added a Metal heart which I purchased from Zulily.com …. I'm very happy with the results. I have seen these signs sold on Etsy and our local Buy & Sell and I have to say that they don't charge enough as it does take some time to make. I was surprised at the time it took but was fun to create

    How did you age the wood?

      thank you, yes I painted the first coat with black latex and after that dried I just dry brushed with gray paint ...I purchased a sample size at my hardware store so it only cost $6.00, craft paint from the dollar store would work great too. After that coat was dry I just sanded the edges with sand paper (also from the dollar store) and the surface where the wording went, before I stenciled it of course. I did the same with the hanger but just used 2 coats black paint then sanded the edges.

    Where did you get the lettering?

    You indicates you used a piece of 1 x 5 pine board. It looks like a piece of fencing. Do you think a piece of fencing could also be used?

      Oh yes, as long as it's not pressure treated as I would not recommend this for inside your home due to chemicals in the wood
