Laundry Today or Naked Tomorrow!

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380!

Have you recovered from Christmas yet?  I finally have all the decorations down and my house is looking somewhat normal again.  As much as I miss the pretty lights and decorations, it always feels good to get my house back in order.  And, once that job is completed, I feel less guilt about spending a little time in my studio.  So, let me show what I made for my laundry room yesterday....

I came across this pretty tray at Michael's a while back and bought 2 of them.  Wish I had bought more!  I used a cut file from the Silhouette Store to create a stencil then sponged on some chalk paint in black.

I love this sentiment...story of my life!

The jars are from Hobby Lobby.  The sentiment is also from the Silhouette Online Store.  I use vinegar in most of my laundry so I had to have a cute bottle. I can't remember the font I used for the word Vinegar, but I love the way it turned out.

While I still don't love doing laundry, this project makes me smile every time I step into my laundry room :)

Thanks for stopping by today.
See you soon!


  1. this is great Tanya!! I would love to know more about why you use vinegar in laundry! I use it with the smelly things ;) or new clothing but that's all. Blessings!!

    1. Not long after getting my first front load washer, I noticed a musty smell in the washer and in my clothing. Online research lead me to white vinegar several times so I thought it was worth a try! It has worked wonders, eliminating the musty odors. And I love the fact that it’s a natural product.

      Vinegar also helps “set” colors to prevent running. Years ago when I was an avid cross-stitcher, I was told to wash my finished pieces in mild detergent and white vinegar to remove oils (from hands) and any dirt before having a project framed. The vinegar was added to prevent the colors in the floss from running. Always worked with my cross stitch and so far so good with my laundry!

  2. What a great addition to the laundry room. This sure is a pretty way to do a messy chore. Great tip about the vinegar. We have a front loader too and I know what you mean about the musty smell, especially here in Florida where it gets hot.
