Missing Sock DIY for Laundry Room

Raise your hand if you have a pile of socks missing a mate. Every week I have at least one sock that goes missing and I usually just throw it in the drawer and hope I find it's mate in the next wash, but sometimes it gets buried under the other socks never to be seen again! I decided to make a fun piece of chalkboard wall decor for our new laundry room, that also would hold the socks missing a mate.

Supplies needed for this Missing Sock Chalkboard Wall Decor:
  • Wooden Frame - I used a 12x12 size
  • (5) Clothes Pins
  • Paint color(s) of your choice
  • Rapid Fuse glue
  • 12x12 piece of Luan
  • Rust-Oleum primer
  • Rust-Oleum Chalkboard spray paint

Paint your wooden frame and clothespins and let dry. I used White for the frame and Frosted Glass for the clothes pins (both from Deco Art.)

Paint the piece of luan with primer and let dry. Then apply 2 coats of chalkboard paint and let dry.

Secure the painted chalkboard piece into the frame using the tabs on the back. Attach the picture hanging hardware to the back of the frame. Measure where you want the clothes pins to go; I evenly spaced them across the bottom.

Use the super glue to attach the clothes pins to the frame. Once everything is dry, hang your new decor and write a cheesy saying on it!
