I like the idea. This sign could be recreated using salvaged wood and left over paint-or check the hardware store for reject paints in soft blues, greens, or greys. Once painted the signm could be sanded down for wear.
Simple built-ins to create a mudroom or storage anywhere from a kids room to a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Or instead of custom, buy two thrify store bookcases and paint them, bolt them to your wall and add wainscotting between them. Then pick up a thift store bench and cut it to fit. Add the hooks and you're set. What do you think @Lisa Phillips-Barton Phillips-Barton Harris for the laundry room? :)
