A rather fetching dry erase board

I like simple, brilliant ideas. Check out Brittni's pretty dry erase board solution: fabric framed under glass. Let's all kick ourselves now for not thinking of this sooner. Read more about it here.

I did this using a VERY large poster frame that was being stored in our garage a few years back, then mounted it in my office. SO much cheaper than the real thing and cleans better too!!!

Susan said...

Wonderful. I'm pretty sure I have some empty frames somewhere. Now to find some great fabric!

Damaris said...

oh yeah, totally simple and totally good. Now I'm pissed that I got rid of all my glass photo portraits. dumb.

Venus de Hilo said...

Ow! Ow! Ow!
So obvious, now that I see it!
I have a pile of old poster frames that I almost tossed. I'm gonna go try a marker on one, and rummage in the fabric stash.

Kicking myself. Right now. And planting the palm of my hand into my forehead.

Maxabella said...

My girls will love this (might go with perspex rather than glass for the kiddlywinks). Awesome idea, thanks for sharing.

Brilliant.

Thank you for sharing!

Stephanie said...

great idea! I wonder if plexi would work? glass is an issue with my 3 yr old

Bek said...

not only is that a cool idea, but I love that paint she linked to - I've never seen anything like that (well, besides chalkboard paint). But I'd never use it for fear the kids, until older, would think any wall was fair game...

So, yeah, add me to the list of "palm to forehead" readers

Missy said...

My hiney hurts! Doh!

PeridotSnowDesigns said...

when i was in college, our bathroom mirrors became instant dry erase boards, perfect for passive-aggressive messages to messy suite-mates.

now, it's an instant "make sure girlfriend doesn't forget to take her contact case with her when she leaves" note.

:) way cuter than post-its, and less waste.
