DIY Dry Erase Board

Thanks to Mod Podge and Plaid for sponsoring this post!

The hubs and I have been doing some heavy spring cleaning and organizing around the house lately…I know it’s the middle of winter, so we’re fashionably late! All of our drawers are now organized, the closets, garage, you name it.  Everything except for my craft space which although I had a professional organizer come in over the summer, thanks to {my} bad habits, is back to being a disaster (there must be a support group for this).  Putting my craft space back together is my task this weekend.  In order to make sure I get and stay organized I made a DIY Dry Erase Board with the new Mod Podge Sheer Colors line to help me stay on track.

It’s pink, and so girly!  Just in time to make a great gift for Valentine’s Day!

I love the Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge, but for this project I didn’t need it.  Oh but you know I will soon (mason jars, plates, cups, glasses, etc.) WOOT!

This thrift store frame was half off at Goodwill (get tips on how to get the best deals at Goodwill here)!

Step 1: 

Remove the glass from the frame and clean it well.

Step 2:

Pour some of the Mod Podge directly onto the glass and brush it out from end to end.  Make sure to always go in the same direction. Repeat this 2-4 times, allowing to dry to the touch between coats, until you have your desired shade.

I went for hot pink!

In between coats, I placed duct tape in this cute hearts design around the outside of the frame.

This of course is optional.  You can opt to paint it, Mod Podge fabric or paper on it instead, anything goes!

Step 3:

Use the foam roller top to go over the last coat so that you conceal any brush marks.

Once it’s nice and even..let it sit and dry.  I left it out overnight, but you can probably get away with several hours.

Step 4:

Put your frame back together, with the Mod Podged side of the glass to the back.  Give the front of the glass a shine with some glass cleaner to remove any grubby fingerprints :)

Using your dry erase marker go to town!  Think: grocery list, ‘honey-do’ list, chores for the kids, school agendas, to use in your cubicle at work, anything at all!

I love this great organizing tool!
