dry-erase message board diy

i wanted a place where i could easily jot down chores and reminders for my kids, so my diy brain got to thinkin'

old frame
+
leftover wallpaper
+
spray paint
=
beachy message board!

(i admit i saw a very similar idea to this in a "style at home" magazine a summer or two back)


so with a few tweaks to that original idea, this is what i came up with....


 


just wipe off and start fresh, whenever you want!


easy - peasy!

  1. Lovely! The colors are so much more soothing than the black of chalk board paint too.

    *I posted about my new little beachy welcome mat on my blog today. Your chevron rug was the inspiration and starting point for me. Thanks so much!

  11. I love this. I tried with fabric and it came out bunchy. It was too dark too.
    I sprayed a gold frame with blue and it came out iridescent green and kind of sparkly. I used wrapping paper. I think I will need to find something more subtle, because it is hard to read. I will keep trying.

    Thanks for your site. I'm a California girl living in Seattle and trying to bring the beach in..

  12. I want to make one, too! Can glass from any frame be used as a dry erase board? Can I just buy any frame I like and put fabric in where a picture would normally go? Thanks!
