Progress

Here we are, week 4! I can’t believe we only have two weeks left before the big reveal of our modern farmhouse laundry room!! That fact brings me both excitement, and terror! This past weekend we were yet again out of town (Note to self: we have got to stop traveling during ORC!) so our progress has been limited but we still have several items to check off for this week!

Supplies you will need:

Instructions

  1. Download the SVG cut file (this limited-time free printable has expired, but is now available on Etsy).
  2. Open the file in Silhouette studio, and resize to whatever size you desire under the “scale” tab (make sure you have the box checked for “lock aspect” before resizing).Farmhouse Laundry Room Sign Tutorial and FREE SVG cut file | ORC Week 4
  3. Go to the “modify” tab, select the entire design then click “make”. This will make the entire design a compound path.Farmhouse Laundry Room Sign Tutorial and FREE SVG cut file | ORC Week 4
  4. Adjust your blade to the correct setting for cutting vinyl (you can view these under the “cut settings” tab). And make sure that under “Cut Style for Selected Shape” that “Cut” is selected. **If using contact paper use these settings (Speed: 8; Thickness: 3; Blade: 1)**Farmhouse Laundry Room Sign Tutorial and FREE SVG cut file | ORC Week 4
  5. Get your vinyl cut to the correct size (this file is set up to 12″Hx26″W but the design is for 10″x26″) and load media into machine.
  6. Send your design to your silhouette machine and start cutting!
  7. While your design is cutting, paint your piece of wood white and let it dry.Farmhouse Laundry Room Sign Tutorial and FREE SVG cut file | ORC Week 4
  8. Once you have your design cut, weed out all the unwanted vinyl leaving your design on the vinyl backing paper.
  9. Use clear transfer tape (I cut mine to the size of my sign 10″x26″), and transfer your design to the tape.Farmhouse Laundry Room Sign Tutorial and FREE SVG cut file | ORC Week 4
  10. When your board is dry, remove the vinyl backing paper and place your design on your sign.
  11. Use a plastic scraper or old gift card to press your design onto the sign.
  12. Slowly peel off the transfer tape, leaving your design on your board.
  13. This next step is important to prevent the paint from bleeding through! Take you white paint and paint over your design again (this will seal the vinyl so that if anything bleeds it will be white into white).Farmhouse Laundry Room Sign Tutorial and FREE SVG cut file | ORC Week 4
  14. Once dry, take your black paint and paint over the entire board.Farmhouse Laundry Room Sign Tutorial and FREE SVG cut file | ORC Week 4
  15. Let dry until your design has set for 10-15 minutes (not fully dry), then begin to peel off the vinyl design.Farmhouse Laundry Room Sign Tutorial and FREE SVG cut file | ORC Week 4
  16. Let your sign dry completely, then lightly sand to distress.Farmhouse Laundry Room Sign Tutorial and FREE SVG cut file | ORC Week 4

  1. This sign is seriously so cute. I can’t believe we’re heading into week 5! I can’t wait to see how this space comes together. i love everything you’ve done already. It’s going to be so fabulous. Hugs, CoCo

  2. I just bought my silhouette and haven’t really played with it very much. It scares me a little. We did use it to embellish a 3rd grade science fair project though. 😉
    Your sign looks great!

    1. I’m a newbie at this too! I just got it a couple months ago and this was my 2nd or 3rd time using it! There are lots of great tutorials on Youtube!

  3. Your sign is beautiful! I don’t have a silhouette but this makes me what to get one. I wish you the best for the rest of this challenge.

  4. Hello,

    Ive saved the file and I am trying to download to silhouette. It is giving me an error message ” the file type you are attempting to access is not supported” any suggestions? Thank you so much!
