DIY Laundry Room Decals

When we lived in our previous home, my laundry room was one of my favorites.  I had taken the time to paint it decorate it, and make it pretty.  Since I spend so much time in there, why not?  Now that we have moved into a new home, our laundry room also doubles as an entryway from the garage, and is pretty drab. Not only do I want my laundry room to look cute, but it has to be functional. It’s not just a place to store things like Wisk Deep Clean® High Efficiency detergent.  Backpacks, shoes, and other “must have” out the door essentials need to be accessible as well.  Making some vinyl decals was easy, adds some color pops, and really spruced up our space!

Step 1:  Open your Silhouette software.  Choose a font from your list and type the word WASH and then DRY.  I chose KG Be Still and Know for my font.  From there, size your font so it will fit centrally on your washer and dryer.

Step 2:  Choose a simple shape, like a flower, to frame the edges of your word.  For mine, I chose a flower to add some fun to my decals.  This is a great time to use the “Replicate” function.  Choose “Object” from the drop down menu and choose “Replicate Right”.

Step 3:  Cut your words and flowers.  I chose to use two colors, and cut the flower framing the word in the opposite color.  So I have aqua WASH and gray flowers, and gray DRY and aqua flowers.


Step 4.  Weed the excess vinyl away and apply transfer tape to your decals.  Make sure the surface of your washer and dryer are clean before applying the vinyl.  Carefully peel off the backing of the vinyl and place it on your machine.  At an angle, gently peel off the transfer tape and you are done!



Cute, right?  This is a simple, easy way to spruce up your laundry room.  Along with these decals, I have a small wood kitchen cart right inside the entry.  Our kitchen cart holds some essentials like backpacks, lunch bags, and my handbag.


This holds our Wisk Deep Clean® High Efficiency, which I like to buy at Kroger.  I am a huge laundry detergent snob, so Wisk Deep Clean® High Efficiency is a must for us because it cleans our clothes so deeply.  I like to use the high efficiency because it cleans our clothes powerfully, and it’s specially formulated for my high efficiency washer.  We added some of our children’s art work to the walls and some colorful canvas bins.  All of these things spruced up our laundry room simply and functionally.
