Grow.Swap.Share. Blog Swap

First I must apologize to Laurie for getting this post up so late today. I am so happy to be apart of
Grow.Swap.Share.Blog Swap hosted by Carrie at My Favorite Finds and Julie at White Lights On Wednesday and today I am sharing with you this awesome Blog: Laurie's Little Bits of Creativity, etc.
My name is Laurie and I blog over at Laurie's Little Bits of Creativity, etc.  I'm blog swapping today with Nina.  I will be sharing how I made a piece of subway art for my laundry room.

I've had this little tabletop ironing board kicking around in my craft room for awhile now.  I got it at a garage sale for $1.00. 

Using my Cricut and my Doodle Type cartridge I made a stencil.  I put a piece of red paper under it so you could see it better.

After stripping off the cover, I painted it vintage gray.  Gray is my new go to color lately.  A little green Frog tape doubling as stencil tape keeps my stencil from moving while I sponge black acrylic craft paint on.

I used a nail to hang it on the wall in my laundry room. The leg on the back serves as a hanger.

And there you have it.

Thanks Nina for letting me share with all your readers today.  I hope you'll hop on over to Laurie's Little Bits of Creativity, etc. sometime for some more great ideas.

I told you it was awesome! Now head on over to check out the rest of her awesomness!!


  1. Great idea. I have an old ironing board that was my moms that I really don't want to part with. I think I'll do something like this in my laundry room. Thanks for the idea.

  2. Wow. Love this. It is original! Or at least I haven't seen anything like this. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes, Linda
