When I finished my new sewing space in our new house, I tried out a fun DIY project that I want to share with you today! It is a DIY Project Dry Erase Board. I’ve been using it to keep my current projects front and center and using it to record my ideas on the spot.
I wanted to test it out and make sure I felt that it was worth sharing but… my quilting friends…
I absolutely LOVE it.
Like, I don’t know how I survived without. It’s been THAT beneficial in my sewing room for the last few months.
The DIY Project Dry Erase Board
I have it hung up on the wall right next to my machines.
I see it every single day. It keeps me aware of what I have to work on, what deadlines are coming up and maybe that’s not what works for you… but my oh my have I felt more productive now!
The best part… it only cost me $7!
How to make your own DIY Project Dry Erase Board
This is what I started with… keep it budget-friendly, An idea to repurpose an old frame and make it so so pretty, because, why not?
I went by the thrift store and found a frame that was from… I’m guessing the 1990s? I don’t know, but it was not anything that would fit my current home decor.
I took out the picture, painted the backing that was already in the frame. (or you could frame some really cute wallpaper?), painted the frame and BOOM 🙂 Instant loveliness.
The frame needed a little cleaning up, but overall it was in good shape and I loved the little carved details on it.
I started with a primer paint that I had on hand just to minimize the number of coats of colored paint I would need to use.
I had these little small containers of paint leftover from another project. It isn’t really a secret that I love pink, right?
I love these little Valspar paints for small projects around the house. (and if you ask my husband, I collect way too many of them)
I highlighted the little corner carvings with the lighter shade of pink and to add a little extra feminine touch to it.
What I use it for…
I use my DIY Project Dry Erase board as a brain essentially.
I keep track of long term and short term goals on it as well as deadlines and progress.
