This is the little project for the living room that I mentioned breaking. It’s a 4 foot tall dry erase board. I broke the glass as I was preparing to hang it, so I had to go purchase another 4’ framed print just for the replacement glass.
Anyway…the Hubs and I really like having a big board to brainstorm ideas and jot notes down. We considered turning the stair wall into a chalkboard wall, but once we put the texture on the other walls, we preferred it for that wall too. So, to still be able to write out our ideas, and not cover up the beautiful texture, I made this dry erase board.
It really is an incredibly easy DIY.
Get an extra large picture frame (thrift store: $10-$25). Remove the picture and the backing, leaving only the glass. Hang it on the wall.
In our case, I painted the frame with the wall paint so it would blend in even more.
And you can see the wall texture right through it.
Just write on it with dry erase markers and wipe off with a dry cloth.
What’s your preferred method of jotting things down? Chalkboards? Dry erase boards? Paper?
