Define the space

Ballard Designs Image 2Perhaps you received the same Ballard Designs catalog I did last week? 

When I saw this item, I knew I could work up a “version” of it myself, at a fraction of the $129 price tag. 
Ballard Designs Image
I really liked the idea of this piece… the simplicity of it.  I also thought the idea would work well in a bathroom.  Personally, I think the decor of these spaces – laundry rooms & bathrooms – should be a little more utilitarian than anything else. 

So, you guessed it, it’s another freebie!

I found my definitions at MSN Encarta & Merriam-Webster, just like they did.  Each file is a PDF, with the image itself sized to 8”x10”.  (Last time I checked, 8”x10” frames were a lot less than $129, plus my laundry room and guest bath are small, so Ballard’s 24” square print wouldn’t work for me.)

Bath & Laundry IMAGE

To download the file(s) of your choice, just click on the image above and you’ll be directed to their 4shared locations.  Then, just print on your own color printer and trim to size (8”x10”), or upload it to a place like FedEx Office.  Find an inexpensive frame, and voila!  You’ve got yourself a new piece of “art” for likely 90% less than what Ballard Designs is charging. 

*** UPDATED 06/26/12 ***
New download location for these images is here 


I hope this makes a nice, simple addition to your space!

I’ll be posting this project to some of the link-up parties listed here:

I'm honored to have had this project featured on these sites. Thanks so much!!

I just printed and framed the green bath sign for the kids/guest bathroom in our new house! When I get around to posting about the bathroom makeover, I'll be sure to link to you! And if I remember, I'll leave another comment here, so you can check it out :)

Thanks so much for the free download! I'm planning on putting one of your ABC posters in my little boy's room too. Love it all.

Wonderful work! Your ideas are always so special. Couldn't get the laundry signs to download though. Could you please send me the red, tan and green laundry signs. I'm getting ready to repaint my laundry room, but still deciding on the color. Thanks so much - Kate @
