I have been looking for vintage washboards to hang in my laundry room for quite some time now. The problem I have had in finding them is that they are all too expensive for me! Well, the last time my parents came to visit they brought this amazing washboard with them that they found cheap at an auction. I love it!
I didnt want to do any painting or altering to the actual washboard because I love the old worn look it has. I decided instead just to embellish it up a bit.
I cut a little bit of CCB burlap into triangles and then clipped them onto some twine with mini clothespins. The letters are chipboard pieces I painted with some Tattered Angels DIY and Decor paint and then hot-glued on.
The little ruffled flowers I made with some fabric scraps, and then glued a magnet to the back so they would stick to the metal washboard piece.
So its a very simple makeover to an already amazing washboard. Its now hanging up in my laundry room and I absolutely love it!
I have a process video below on how it all came together.
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
