I have several items that need special laundering, such as line dry shirts. I am always afraid I will throw one into the dryer one day and decided I needed a reminder board. I had seen boards with tin on them at the second hand store quite often, so went there looking for something. What I found instead was this wood frame ( never used nor painted) and a piece of tin that fits the back of it. I have a whole bag of little wood pieces that my youngest daughter found at a yard sale for me, so used some of that to make the magnets. (The magnets were also in that bag my daughter found me.) I made 3 magnets to fir my laundering needs : Lay flat, Line dry, and Dry with tennis balls. When I have an item that needs one of those instructions, I will put the magnet on the washer as a reminder. I haven't attached the tin piece yet, but when I do, I will be excited to put this in my laundry room.
I painted this with acrylic paints, and spray coated it with a clear acrylic finish.


  1. I'm going to add a magnet that says, "Check stain".
