Bring a little personality to your laundry room with this DIY Wooden Laundry Sign. This project takes a wood pallet and turns it into a charming and rustic sign with a lot to say. With the help of stencils, you can paint your pallet to say whatever you want it to! You can stick with the laundry theme for your sign and chose a clever clothing pun to make loading the dryer a little brighter. But don't feel limited to one room of your home, you can use this project to create fun signs for any part of the house.
