Dry Erase Board From Old Picture Frame

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Things have gotten a little busy around here lately. Between my family, the blog, my Etsy shop, and another little adventure I am taking, I am having trouble keeping up with everything.  I am a list maker, and had stacks of list all over my desk…which makes me a little nuts.  I had to find a better way to keep my lists in one place so I could see them and they wouldn’t get lost.  I have made a Picture Frame Turned Dry Erase Board before, but this time I needed it to be big enough to keep my lists on. 

I had two of these prints.  They are lovely, but if you could look a little closer, you would see how pitiful the matting is, and it’s not painted, it’s a print…kind of blah.  I took all everything out…print, mat, and glass…and painted the frame a creamy white.  I cleaned the glass and popped it back in the frame, then added a gorgeous piece of scrapbook paper.  I printed the words Family and Blog on vinyl with my Cricut machine and added them to the front of the glass, then got to work making my lists!  This is truly one of the easiest projects!  You use a dry erase marker to write on the glass, and then wipe off with a cloth or paper towel to change it!  Seriously, ridiculously easy!  You can use any pattern or color of paper you like to make it match your decor, and you can use them anywhere!

Mine lives behind my desk, so I can look up at any time to refresh my memory or mark something off.  
Isn’t if absolutely fabulous?

    I love it! What a fun upgrade. I, too, and a list maker, they keep me sane and when they are disorganized..I am disorganized. Congrats on the tt&j feature. :)

    Nicely done! It’s pretty cool how much a little bit of elbow grease can change the more mundane into something that you really want to use and have around – good job!
