This chalkboard laundry room sign is perfect for your laundry. It is easy to make and a great solution to finding all the missing socks.
It has been a crazy couple of weeks between closing on our new to us house, attending a conference and packing and moving. I have been working hard on making new projects and sharing with you. But in the meantime, I will be introducing you to a few talented bloggers who were so awesome to step in and help me out by sharing a few fun projects for you!
Today, I would like to introduce you to Mary from A Real Girls Realm. You can read more about Mary at the bottom of the post but I will let Mary take it from here…
How is it that only one sock will go missing from an entire load of laundry? Every week I have at least one pair missing its mate and it inevitably turns up in the next load…or even in the dryer the next week! I usually just throw the lone wolf sock in the drawer and hope I find it’s mate soon, but sometimes it gets buried under the other socks never to be seen again, so I came up with a solution!
We recently built a laundry room in our basement and now that I have a proper place to do laundry, I can be more organized! I decided to make a fun piece of chalkboard wall decor that also would hold my socks looking for a mate.

Supplies Needed for This DIY Chalkboard Wall Decor Idea:
- Wooden Frame -I used a 12×12 size. Here are some options. Or you could also use any old frame.
- Clothes Pins
- Paint color(s) of your choice
- Rapid Fuse glue
- 12×12 piece of Lauan plywood
- Spray primer
- Chalkboard spray paint
How to Make the Chalkboard Laundry Wall Decor:
Step 1: Paint the wooden frame and clothespins and let dry. I used White for the frame and Frosted Glass for the clothes pins
Step 2: Paint the piece of luan with primer and let dry. Then apply 2 coats of chalkboard paint and let dry. Secure the chalkboard painted luan piece into the frame using the tabs on the back.
Step 3: Attach picture hanging hardware to the back of the frame.
Step 5: Measure where you want the clothes pins to go. I tried to evenly space them across the bottom.
Step 6: Use glue to secure the clothes pins to the frame. I like using Rapid fuse for this.
