I love all the beautiful Laundry rooms that people create with DIY Signs, colored walls and more. For me, I just need a functional laundry room (with a little bit of style in there). Since my laundry room is smaller, any chance of a laundry sorter had to be done on top of the washer and dryer. I purchased 4 laundry baskets and broke them out as so:
Whites, Lights, Darks and Jeans/Towels
It’s nice because my kids are at an age where they can come down and sort their own laundry. To make it easier, I made little chalkboard laundry signs for them and attached them to the laundry baskets.
What you’ll need:
Wipe the wooden pieces clear of any dust or wood particles.
Coat the wood on one side with the black chalkboard paint, let dry and repeat if needed.
Let dry for 24 hours, then cure the painted wood by taking a piece of chalk and rubbing the sides of it along the paint.
After curing, wipe the chalk away.
Take the Crop-A-Dile and punch the holes where you would like, one on each side.
Write down the sorted names on the boards.
Feed the twine through each hole, then tie to the laundry baskets.
