Laundry Room Clothespin Decor

Recently I devoted time to deep clean our laundry room (click HERE to read all about it).  Now with the room shiny and fresh, it was time to add a new touch of bling!  

With no spend decor in mind, I "shopped" our home for items on hand.  When I spotted wooden clothespins, I was reminded of all the clothespin repurposing projects and decor that I've seen online over the years.  

The result ... I combined a gold trimmed black picture frame with white mat (glass removed), and three gold spray painted clothespins mounted with hot glue onto black card stock.  

So sorry that I don't have photos of the "how to" to share but honestly this project went very quickly and is so simple!

First, I removed the glass from the picture frame and added a piece of black card stock, attaching it to the back of the white mat with two rows of double-stick tape on each side.

To spray paint the clothespins, I placed them in a cardboard box, sprayed one side and flipped them until all sides were painted.   

This is the paint I used:


It was wonderful and covered the clothespins completely with just one coat.  

Attached them to the card stock with hot glue and it was complete.


And here it is at home on the laundry room wall:

Have you used clothespins in decor or craft projects?  

I'm enjoying the whimsy and simplicity of this project and, you can never go wrong with spray paint - especially blingy gold!  

Thank you to Brenda at Cozy Little House for featuring this post!~


  1. I love the gold paint! Love these quick and easy projects!

  2. Cute idea! Love all your craft ideas!

  3. This is really so cute. And much nicer than putting up a meaning less piece of "art". I love things that have meaning for their owners. That's what makes decor special in a home. Thanks for the idea.

  4. This is such a clever idea, Carolyn! So simple but packs some WOW into a laundry room. Our laundry room is getting tweaked over the next few weekends and I'm going to keep this idea in mind, should we have an empty wall begging for artwork. Pinning to share.

  5. So cute! Sometimes the most simple projects add the most class and flair! Thanks for sharing on the #SmallVictoriesSundayLinkup!

  6. What a fun project and perfect decor for your laundry room. Thanks for sharing at Snickerdoodle Sunday.

  7. It's so cute and simple, I love it. I also admire the fact that you're always "shopping at home" for things...I'm sure it saves a ton of money. Thanks for sharing with us at Welcome Home Wednesday!
