Here is a great laundry room project to collect the change, crayons, batteries, and other things that are pulled out of pockets before they are washed. I don't have any shelf space in my laundry area, so I decided to make something that could hang on the wall.
I started with a piece of scrap wood, it's pretty small, only 3.5" x 7.5". This wood was from a pallet so it was pretty rough. I sanded it down, especially around the edges.
Then, I painted it with one coat of paint. Once it was dry, I sanded it again, making sure I actually removed the paint around the edges and some on the front.
I watered down some gray paint, brushed it on and wiped it off with a paper towel.
Then, I applied my vinyl lettering
and attached a metal pipe clamp and a small mason jar.
If you have a shelf, you could do this project without the wood and clamp. Just apply the vinyl directly to the mason jar.
