Sometimes, your farmhouse laundry room decor can be as simple as a Laundry sign. As this cursive wall art shows, swirled lettering in a simple black finish pops against a white backdrop. 

The best thing about this simple decor item is that it works for any laundry room theme. For example, we love a wall unadorned with art other than a classic sign for a modern farmhouse laundry room.
