We just recently spruced up our Laundry Room / Mudroom with a great shade of gray – Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter.
The gray looks fab with our red washer and dryer, but the room was still feeling a little dull. So I decided to take a stab at some wall art for room.
Do you likey? If so, hang tight! I have a little treat for you at the end of this post.
But first, I though I’d show you how I made it!
I made up the line, This home has endless love and laundry, because, let’s face it, there has to be some serious love going on to deal with the laundry pile that I go through every week. Two year old twin boys. Need I say more?!? If you’re a mom, I know you get it.
Step 1: To start the project, I used a old piece of artwork that I no longer cared for, and spray painted the entire surface. (Note: this piece didn’t have glass)
Step 2: Next, I used my Silhouette cutter to cut the quote out in vinyl at a size large enough for the piece which is about 2.5 feet square. (BTW, I’ve still not mastered this machine…it took me quite awhile to get it right!) I transferred it onto the piece with transfer paper so it would go on nice and straight.
Step: 3: I painted over the entire surface with white latex paint and waited for it to dry overnight.
Step 4: I peeled away the vinyl stencil to reveal the words in the same color blue as the frame.
Step 5: To get the little red heart, I simply painted over the white with red craft paint.
Then I hung it and smiled.
And believe me, my laundry room rarely makes me smile ;0).
Here’s the fun part. I realize that not everybody who reads my blog is a so-called ‘crafty type’, so for those of you you don’t think you’d ever create your own giant laundry room sign in a month of Mondays, I thought I’d help ya out!
Here’s a free printable for you with the line that I created. All you have to do is right click on the one below (its a much larger file than the one above) and save it to your computer; then print it out as an 8×10 at home or elsewhere. Frame it, hang it, DONE. Just my little Friday afternoon gift to you.
Have a fab weekend, my friends.
Until next time,
P.S. I’m sharing this project at:

Hi Kerri! I came across this print on Pinterest when I searching for DIY Signs. Love this! I plan to use this in my laundry room. Thank you so much for sharing!
I can’t see the link on here for the love and laundry download. Maybe it’s not available anymore? Just hoping it is. It’s adorable! Thanks!
Hi there. Yes, it is available. Just right click on the last image of the printable, and save it to your computer. It’s a hi res file. Hope this helps! ~Kerri
I absolutely love your finished piece! I was really excited to print out the printable and the “o” looks very different from yours and I’m not sure how to fix it. Was this supposed to be like that?
Hi Leanne! The printable is not exactly the same as the painted sign. The font is a little different. Hope this helps! ~Kerri

Just wanted to thank you for the free printable. Can’t wait to hang it in my laundry room. 😉
You are very welcome! Enjoy!
Can I print this up at Walgreens?
Can I download this, than print it up at Walgreens?
This sign turned out great! Really makes your laundry room pop! I’ll have it up on my FB 🙂
Thanks Beckie! 🙂 Kerri
Love your site!

Love this sign! What font did you use on your silhouette for “endless love”? I have a project I’ve been planning in my head but just can’t find the right font to use. Thanks! Love your blog, thanks for sharing your craftiness with us!
Thanks so much! The font is called Aharoni. It’s no-fuss font that works well on signs because it has a lot of weight to it. I’ve struggled with skinny fonts on the Silhouette when trying to get the vinyl away from the backing, but this one works easy peasey. Good luck! ~Kerri
Thank you so much! Just what I need to finish off my laundry room decorating! LOVE IT!

I LOVE this Kerri! Love the saying & the way you painted it. I’m so glad I got to meet you during the Q&A session at the end of Haven! Hope you had a great little vacation afterwards! 🙂 <3 Heidi Rew from Parties for Pennies

PERFECT! Now, if only my laundry room looked half as cute as the one pictured… Might have spruce up the space before I hang anything.
