Laundry room Touch up- Stain remover list

I saw this posting from i heart organizing and got inspired by the her stain chart that she got from Martha Stewart and framed to add to her laundry room.
I have a very small laundry room but I thought turning a stain chart into a wall hanging would be a nice touch!
I got rid of all our frames lately so I only had one to use for this. I thought about waiting until garage selling tomorrow and seeing what I could find but, well, the kids were down for a nap and it was good timing. Sometimes waiting means not getting it done.
I first had to find the right background for my frame. I plan on repainting the laundry room in either a orange or yellow or maybe green…not sure yet. But I figured I can change the color of the background paper there. These were some of my options. It is a whole pile of 12x12 paper I found in someone’s trash. Yes. Can you believe it?
I made my selection and printed off the stain chart (which I adapted for my use by removing some cleaning stains that I never deal with). I also used a fun font.

I glued it to the deco paper and then decided that since my frame is rather thin and delicate I should add something. I opened up my ribbons and found a modest yellow.
I just used stick glue to glue the paper as well as the ribbon on to the background.
It needed a touch more so I pulled out my buttons. I got the little jar of these from the above pictures at Michael’s store for $1. Every size green button imaginable!
I used glue spots that I had on hand and added the buttons to the corners.
Ta-da! It actually fit in the frame with the glass, Which I wanted to remain due to the humidity pressures in that room. Maybe someday I will make this and laminate it before adding the buttons.
One last thing. I added a ribbon to the back by sewing it on.

I added a knot to keep the frame from tilting. I liked the outcome.


It is a little squished in there, as you can see with this picture below.
I also would like to have found a way to cut the glue dots down since they oozed over the smaller buttons.
Hope this inspires someone else! And thank you I Heart Organizing for the great idea!

  3. Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the
    images aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its
    a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
