Craft Room, Part 3 (dry erase picture frame)


Do you remember this old post?
(Sorry, not the best color, not the best picture…..and not my favorite framed dry erase board.  But it worked.)

I decided to find a new picture frame and make a new one.


Mostly because I am a note and list person.
I need a visual of what I need to do, what I need to buy, a priority list of what needs to get done first, etc.
And this dry erase board is going to help me with that.
But for crafts only.  Perfect.

With nice roughed up edges.

That I made by spray painting the brown picture frame white, then this aqua color, letting dry completely in between and after the layers of paint, and then roughing up the edges with sand paper.
But this 20 x 24 inch dry erase board offers plenty of space for my lists…
And keeps my dry erase marker close by…..with a touch of velcro.
Some of that peel and stick velcro. 
So quick and simple.
**And remember to check out this old tutorial to help you with the other details.  (This is a picture frame with a piece of fabric behind the glass.  You write directly on the glass…..and that acts as your dry erase board.  Works like a charm.) 

What a nice bright and cheery addition to the craft room.
And yes, I will be sharing pictures of the entire craft room when this is all done.  Just for those of you who asked and are curious.  I understand.  It’s kinda fun to see where other people work.
Until then….
Oh, and it’s Friday.
Enjoy that weekend of yours.  :)
