Antiqued Clothespin Art

Here is my latest vinyl design - clothespins with a little twist! Perfect for some fun and colorful laundry room decor.
Here's how I created this antiqued artwork.  I started by applying my vinyl to a piece of wood I painted white. I could have stopped here, because it looked really cute like this, but I thought I'd try to antique it a bit.
I applied a layer of Mod-Podge over the entire board and let it dry. This helps the paint or stain stick a little to the vinyl, otherwise, it will wipe off. I mixed some brown paint with some staining/antiquing medium and applied it to the board.
Then, wiped it off until I was happy with the results.
 And you have a cute and easy decoration to brighten up your laundry room (closet, corner, or space).
 You can make them in several colors to match your decor!

I love these. I wish I could do this in my laundry. We are building a new house and this would just brighten up the room. I'll have to dream as we can't get many of the supplies you used. LOVE LOVE LOVE
