Check Your Pockets Laundry Sign


When my sister Farris saw THIS post with the laundry sign from the blog Love Stitched, she wanted one of her own. So I made her one for Christmas! The hardest part was finding a cabinet door. I basically asked everyone I knew if they had an extra cabinet door laying around, but no one did. Then my other sister suggested the "Habitat for Humanity" store. I had never been but I can say now that it's my favorite place! I didn't even have to paint the cabinet door or anything! I used SCAL to design the vinyl and had my husband attach the basket with super glue. He tested it out and it holds a wallet and a blackberry which is exactly what my sister needed. I thought about taking the door handle off but then I thought it would be nice to hang belts or a bag on for lint. I now have to make myself one of these. :) So my sister LOVED it and did a dance when she saw it. Yippy!

  2. This is so adorable! There has been a cabinet door at my local Salvation Army every time I've went for like the last 6 months and I always look at it, knowing I could do something with it but not sure what- now I know! Hope it's still there! Would love for you to link this up on Tuesday to my Gettin' Krafty With It party!

  11. I love it! I use cabinet doors all the time...I get them in the "as-is" section at Ikea. I need to see if we have a Habitat store here! I'd go there all the time!
