I'm Back! (Laundry Room Plaque)

Hello fellow bloggers,
    I'm sorry for the long absence. I have been on a month long vacation from blogger- we traveled to Idaho for Thanksgiving and spent a VERY snowy holiday with family and friends. It was a very nice break. I came back with some great projects and I'm very excited to show you! 

First: I made a laundry room sign yesterday that turned out better than I was expecting, and I'm mighty proud of it myself! ;)

I sort of don't want to tell anyone my little secret... I stumbled upon a section in IKEA that is in the clearance/AS IS area. There were TONS of cupboard doors of all colors, shapes and sizes-- I scored two cupboard doors for .89 cents each! I instantly knew exactly what I was going to do with them! I've wanted to put a little "love" in my laundry room for quite some time and this was the perfect project to push me. A couple weeks ago I bought a laundry room vinyl at a local Holy Cow boutique that comes around every 6 months or so.

I bought this cute pull at Target (I plan on using these in many projects)
I taped off my borders and painted the inner area a soft warm green color that I love (It is now in my living room too)

I hot glued a white ribbon to the back of the board (I also glued the pull too- the screws didn't fit and I figured it was just aesthetic anyway!)...

Then I adhered the vinyl. This project didn't even take 30 minutes to do, paint drying included! It was super fast!

Someday I will make my laundry room cute like all of the blogs I see but for now this is as good as it gets! ;)
