Ok so definitely can’t take credit for this cutesy craft, but anything that involves organizing and barn wood- I am down! This is a fun way to “zest” up your laundry room, not only will it offer decor but functionality because after all- we all know there is a sock monster secretly lurking in the deeps of your washing and drying machine. Every once in a awhile we are happy to discover a missing sock, and when we do- we now know where to go seeking for it’s partner!

Original Blog Post

Step one: get some wood!

Mine was about 10″ long, you can make whatever length you have room for!

Drill two holes into both top corners so you will be able to hang wood later…

Gorilla glue clothes pins along wood edge- a little goes a long way with this glue! (remember gorilla glue expands so less is more and CLEANER)

You can use chalk to stencil out your words, or just go for it! I wrote “seeking soulmate” get it- ha would be cute to write “sole-mate” too 

Drummmmmmm rollllll…..

I love this little organizer! It's cute and takes up just the right amount of space in my laundry! Let's face it, I'm a sucker for some rustic decor!

We hope your little sock buddies find each other!

Happy crafting!

    Love this, but my question is about the "ladder" hanging from the ceiling. How did you hang it? And how sturdy is it? Do you hang clothes on it? I'm thinking of trying something like that over my washer dryer.
