Hello! It's Ginger from GingerSnapCrafts.com, & I am so excited to be here at Happy Crafters sharing my latest tutorial. I have been slowly working on a laundry room makeover over the last several months. Sometimes it takes awhile! ha! (Scroll down to see the before & after!) My most recent addition to this makeover are my adorable polka dot washer & dryer. I'll show you how easy this was to do with just a few supplies! So let's get started! :)
• vinyl cutter
Time: about an hour
I used 3 sheets of vinyl for this project. So for under $10 I was able to totally change the look of our washer & dryer. Not too bad! ;) First you will cut out your polka dots with your vinyl cutter. I used my CAMEO®. Then you will weed your vinyl & put clear transfer tape on top. Now we are ready to apply the vinyl.
Before you begin make sure your washer & dryer are free from dust or lint. I just used a wet rag & all purpose cleaner on mine before I got started. Then I just started at the top & worked my way down & around the washer with the polka dots.
So just keep going! Match up the pattern as best you can as you add new pieces of vinyl.
When I got along the bottom of my machine I found it a lot easier to open the door, & then apply the vinyl that way.
This was such a fun & easy project, and I love how my washer & dryer look now! They are too cute! Buuuut the good thing about vinyl is that if I get tired of polka dots I can easily remove it. Buuuut I probably won't! I love polka dots too much. ;)
Check out this before & after! It so much lighter, brighter & fun! ;)
Do you have anything in your home that could use some polka dots? I'd love to hear! :)
