I will start off by saying I LOVE dry erase boards!!! I feel that they are great for staying organized and communicating as a family. And when they made dry erase calendars, I fell in love even more! I used them when I was teaching and they were wonderful for the kids to learn to write on without wasting a ton of paper. The only thing that I don't like about them is that they are not too attractive to have hanging around the house. The ones with nice wooden frames around them are really expensive, and I just don't want to pay that much. So when I found out that I could use a regular picture frame to create a really nice dry erase board, I couldn't wait to try it out.
I went to Walmart and purchased an 11 x 13 frame for only $5. I then used scrapbook paper I had around the house to make a background for my new dry erase TO DO board. I wanted something that would coordinate with my kitchen so I could hang it in there.
This project literally took me 10 minutes to make and looks pretty good. And the best part is that I can switch things out whenever I get bored with it!
Here's the result, hanging in the kitchen:
And here is my list of TO DO's for today:
Now it's your turn to make a cute scrapbook-ish dry erase board for your home! Good Luck!
