A few months back I was over at Candie Coopers' blog and saw a DIY Dry Erase project she had posted about. I knew I had it try it. So, a few weeks ago I headed over to the thrift shop and picked up a $2 11x14 picture frame.
All you do is take out the chipboard backing and collage anything you want on it. I used old book pages from a 1950's trigonometry book I have. I put them down with Mod Podge, then did a wash of Goldens' Titan Buff fluid acrylic to mute the background. Next, I pulled out some scrapbook papers in the colors of my kitchen and did a banner type border. I added a few of my favorite brown Bo Bunny rub-ons as accents, cleaned the glass and put everything back in the frame.
Voila! A DIY Dry Erase board for grocery lists and appointments, etc. All for the low, low, discount price of $2.00. It was a quick project you can personalize with color or photos and it only took about an hour to do.
If you decide to try this project, leave me comment with a link.
I'd love to see how yours turns out!
