Unfortunately, I forgot to take a Before picture of my closet doors. Imagine drab, cheap looking doors with mustard-poop-brown knobs. Those knobs were one of the first things I vowed to change when we moved in. I hated them but didn’t want to spend any money on replacing them either. So, here’s what I finally did. I spray painted the knobs black and then used some liquid nails to glue on that little oil-rubbed bronze center thing. (Those center things were about to be thrown out by our contractor because they didn’t fit on our kitchen cabinets. I rescued them knowing that I’d find a good use for them, and I HAVE-all throughout my house.)
The cute soap box was in my master bath, and I rehoused it here. If you were really thrifty, you could obtain a crate from your local market and stencil some letters on it. I’m not that patient….so I bought mine awhile back at Gabriel Brothers. I stuck a full sheet of scrapbook paper with some chocolate ribbon (10 yds for $1 at Big Lots) in the center to cover up the ugly cords. The frames are again the ones I had from Target and those little circles on the nail heads are again those saved knob thingies that were almost thrown out!
Oh, and I almost forgot to show you this below! I cut strips of the scrapbook paper (no measuring allowed) and wove it through the grate. Then I took some grosgrain ribbon I had lying around and did the same.
I have envied Sarah’s laundry room sign for a long time and was so excited to learn that one would soon be mine! My laundry “room” is actually a small closet. There wasn’t much wall space for the decal, and besides, I’m starting to feel selfish with my vinyl. If we move, I want to take it with me!
