diy dry erase board

Let me give you some background on that hubby of mine. He's an officer in the Navy, training to be on submarines - at the Naval Nuclear Power Training Command.

Did you check out just then? Because it's alright if you did, it's hard not to :) Basically, because I have bragging rights as his trophy wife, I'll say this: he's uber smart and is in school all day to get smarter.

The other day, he came home and asked if we had any extra dry erase boards. Not exactly something I have an abundance of, but I aim to please. Turns out, he draws a lot of diagrams in class and is tired of wasting paper [adorable] so he thought it would be nice to have a small dry erase board instead.

When he says diagrams, I see this:


But I'm thinking it might be a little more advanced than that.

I digress. Somewhere in blogland, I read about turning picture frames into dry erase boards. Makes sense, right? I've written on mirrors with dry erase markers, so why not glass? I have a stash of these guys that I scooped up at Target [for no good reason] and they looked just right for the part...

At only $3/each, thankyouverymuch.

All I did was frame a white sheet of paper. I mean, really? Does it get any easier?

[Something tells me the note of encouragement wasn't there when he took it in this morning.]

So what about me? Don't I deserve a cute version? Why of course :)

Old frame + scrap fabric [neutral, of course] + scrapbook letters + ribbon + clothespins [for holding receipts and stuff]

Ta-da! Cutie little dry erase board!

Note to self: buy ground mustard, apple juice, cumin and cheddar cheese. Who ARE we??

Oh and don't forget the craft room...

Look out, friends and family everywhere. You may or may not be getting one of these in your stocking this year.

I'm linking up with the Fine Craft Guild :)
