I found this thin pasteboard laundry sign at Dollar Tree.

I gave it lots of farmhouse laundry room style.

I have used Varathane Weathered Wood Accelerator (gray) for several years now.

Today I'm trying Aged Wood Accelerator with a brown finish.

I removed the tiny clothespins on the Dollar Tree ironing board and flipped it over for painting. I brushed on Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in Drop Cloth.

The top side had a piece of contact paper on it with Wash and Dry.

I purchased this laundry stencil from Hobby Lobby a while back. It's a good size for the ironing board.

I swirled on the stencil using Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash.

The ironing board was nailed onto the aged wood board.  A sawtooth hanger was added to the back.

Four clothespins were glued onto the ironing board and board with Titebond Glue.  I let it dry overnight.

It is great staged with a lone sock.

I was inspired to create a great sign with the Dollar Tree cheap sign.

I did not seal or wax the sign or distress it.
