"Seeking a Mate" Sock Board

Posted by DecoArt on Jan 6th 2014

Keeping my laundry room organized is an ongoing effort. Between the products cluttered around my washer, piles of clothes and pesky single lost socks, it's one job I can never seem to tackle successfully! I finally decided to take action against one of my biggest frustrations- those annoying lost socks!

Items Needed:

  • One Piece Of Scrap Wood (I Used A Leftover Piece Of Pine Flooring)
  • Paint Brushes
  • Stencil Dabber Tool
  • Glue Gun
  • Clothes Pins
  • Hanging Bracket For Mounting

Paint your board using Americana's Sea Glass paint and allow to dry  for a couple of hours.

Use the letter stencils to spell out "Seeking a Mate", fill in with Americana's Banana Cream acrylic paint. The stencil dabber tool makes this process much easier.

Next, use the hot glue gun to adhere the clothes pins to your board.

Paint the tips of the clothes pins in Americana's Whispering Turquoise. Then paint the tops using the Melon colored paint. Allow to dry.

Finally, flip the board over and attach a hanging bracket to the back.  Use hot glue or small nails to attach the mounting bracket.
