(more after the jump)
i love dry-erase boards. no. actually, i love chalk boards, but they are messy…so my love has transferred over to dry erase boards as of lately. the only problem is that dry erase boards are either expensive (for the super large ones that you’d use to solve the riemann hypothesis) or ugly. but it is really easy to make your own. dry erase markers will dry & erase off of
any most slick surfaces, like glass…so all you need for this diy is a cheap frame / hanging supplies, some fabric, and dry erase markers.
i am pretty sure you can see where i am going with this…just cut the fabric a half inch larger on all sides than the frame (inside). make sure to iron the fabric, you can reinforce it if you’d like. i chose to wrap a piece of card-stock, that i cut to fit inside the frame, with the fabric. i then placed the wrapped card-stock in the frame & hung it up. voila! it’s not really all that noticeable, but the fabric is a light cream with white flowers.
the great thing about this project is that you can really go crazy with it. maybe find an awesome cheap frame from the dollar store or a yard sale that you can spray paint in some tacky but fabulous metallic color. you don’t have to use fabric even, you can frame a photo or drawing (something that wouldn’t interfere with what you write). you can also frame darker fabrics/paper and find a white dry erase marker, which look pretty awesome. i’m planning on making one with magnets for the fridge. yay for to-do & honey-do lists!
