So since it's the first week of school, what better way to get inspired than a DIY project from yours truly? Along with being organized [yeah right], we love having a cool and chic work space. Instead of hanging a boring store-bought whiteboard in your office, make your own unique and personalized erase board with decor pieces you probably already have in your home.
What You'll Need:
- Glass Picture Frame (Preferably from Sofia's) :) [[TOTALLY kidding.]] We used THIS baby right here.
- Scrapbook Paper -OR- Notepad Paper for To Do Lists. Don't have any notebook paper? Download some HERE for free.
- Masking Tape (or any type of tape for that matter.)
- Dry-erase Markers
- Remove the glass from the picture frame, setting it aside for later. Any size picture frame works for this project.
- Behind the glass of the picture frame, you'll find a backboard, which is usually made from a lightweight cardboard. Place the paper on your work area, pattern side down, and place the cardboard on top of it to measure the section to cut for the background of your erase board. Select paper that has a cool pattern but isn't so overwhelmingly colorful as to make it hard to read your notes. Use a ruler to mark an inch around the cardboard on the paper and then cut.
- Now pull the edge of the paper around the edges of the cardboard and secure with lengths of masking tape, almost like you're wrapping the cardboard like a gift.
- Place the paper-wrapped cardboard back in the frame and then replace the glass.
- Hang your finished erase board with the help of two nails positioned at the top corners, which will make it nice and secure when you're writing and erasing important reminders.
- Simply use a paper towel when you're ready to wipe away your notes and start getting creative with this BEAUTIFUL thing y'all!
