Pin of the Week: DIY Dry Erase Boards

Friday, October 9, 2015
Ahhh, happy Friday! Life is crazy these days. Weeks fly by and I feel like I can barely keep up with what day it is. I love to be organized but sometimes it's hard. Real hard. Lately, the best way for me to stay organized and not forget things, is to keep lists. Between to-do lists, grocery lists, and reminders, I have pieces of paper all over my house. I needed a better way. So of course, I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration. I found these super simple and very cute "do it yourself" dry erase boards!
 Here is what you need:
- A picture frame Any size will work… pick one that will fit your needs the best.
- Scrapbook paper You can find some pretty colors or patterns that will match your decor! I found some cute paper that looked like handwriting paper from school that I thought would be perfect for to-do lists!
- Dry erase markers
- Magnets These are optional but work really well on the back of the frame if you want to stick it to your fridge. Just make sure you buy strong, large magnets if you do this.
Here is what you do:
1. Take the back off the frame.
2. Remove the paper/sample photos from the inside of the frame.
3. Insert your scrapbook paper. You may have to trim it down depending on the size of the frame.
4. Put the back of the frame back on and BOOM you have a dry erase board!

Told you it was simple. If you look on Pinterest, there are so many different ideas and options for creating a unique board. Some other ideas I liked was using burlap instead of scrapbook paper or even paint chips for a very colorful effect.
The two pictured above are the ones I use at home. The black frame I keep by my desk. It's usually filled with to-do's and reminders. The smaller white frame I keep in the kitchen for meal planning. I found the Menu template here.  I loved this idea so much that I used it for my 3rd segment on Gayle's Guide to Pinterest! You can view the segment below :) Have a great weekend!
