I found this laundry soap sign at a local thrift store in our town. I love this thrift store because it’s proceeds fun a local charity. I knew with a little paint I could upcycle it and put it in my laundry room.
Here is the original sign that I bought for $1 at the local thrift store. What a deal right? I just couldn’t leave it there for that price.

I started by painting the indent of the sign with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk paint in the color white. It took 2 coats and I let it dry between each coat.
I also decided to paint the outside edge as well. I got a little sloppy but I knew I’d be covering the rest with a darker color.
I then painted the letters, heart, and 5 cents with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color Castle.
I also painted the outside of the frame work. I used some painters tape to avoid painting on the white paint I had already done.
I let that dry completely and peeled off the painters tape.
I hung it up in my laundry room and love how it turned out.
