Occasionally Crafty: Dollar Store Sign Makeover

July 6, 2010

Dollar Store Sign Makeover

I have been inspired by Dollar Store Crafts to look at things in a different way.  Before my trips to the Dollar Store were to buy cheap toys for my kids.  Now, when I go, I try to look for things I can make over into something better.

My first Dollar Store Re-do is this sign.  With a little paint and vinyl, this rustic sign (not my decorating style)

became this sign for my laundry room:

The sign was a thin metal.  I gave it several coats of black paint (maybe four?), then cut the words in vinyl with my Silhouette.  I hot glued a matching ribbon to the back and hung it in my laundry room.  
Simply lovely.  Easy.  Just my style.  

Linking up to some of these Linky Parties!

  1. This is a wonderful transformation! Great job.

  2. Wonderful idea! I love how you transformed that sign! I would love one of these for my laundry room (perhaps if the hubby saw the sign he would know what to do and HE could try the laundry....)

    You did a great job!! :)

  3. Very cool! It is quite the transformation from what it originally was. Great job!
