I am so excited about this project! I have been wanting to do it for several months and finally got around to it. I purchased a 24"x 6" board and four 2" pegs in Salt Lake City. First, I painted the top edges with white. After it dried, I painted the entire board with a light bright blue (very cheery don't you think?). Once again, I let it dry. Then, I sanded the top edges just until I saw the white layer. I painted the tops of the pegs white, then blue, then sanded them like the board.
How annoying that I can't turn off the underlining above. Oh well! Using cheap white contact paper, I cut out the text on my Cricut. I set the pressure to 2 and the blade depth to 4. Wah lah!
I am going to hang this in my laundry room (go figure), and as I am folding clothes, I will hang the "hang ups" on the pegs so they don't wrinkle while they lay over my craft chair until I get around to hanging them up (not very often!).
I hope this helps me. If not, it will brighten up my laundry room! Yea!!
