DIY Dry Erase Board

DIY Dry Erase Board from

Every once and a while I get the urge to do something creative. I’ve been thinking that I need a small dry erase board for my office – just a place to keep track of video ideas and weekly reminders. My first step is always to shop my house in case we have something I could use or upcycle.

I remembered I had a DIY dry erase menu board that my mom gave me a couple years ago. She put a piece of scrapbooking paper behind the glass of an inexpensive photo frame, labeled the days of the week on the front of the glass and ended up with a cute weekly menu board! She used it for a while and passed it on to me. I enjoyed using it for over a year until I needed the counter space for something else. Here’s what it looked like (I remembered to take a picture after I started removing the days of the week labels, but you get the idea):

As I said, I liked the board the way it was – it just didn’t suit my needs anymore. I peeled the stickers off, cleaned the glass and changed out the chevron paper for a sheet of plain gray card stock. I grabbed a few labels from my stash and placed them on top of the glass. Here’s what it looks like now:

You can write on the glass with a Sharpie or a dry erase marker – they both come off with a little glass cleaner. If you use a Sharpie, just don’t leave it on for months at a time or it will stain the glass.

As a bonus, there’s a sneak peak of a few videos coming to my YouTube channel next month!

  1. I like how you are using this! It looks so cute.

    I currently have 2 frames that I am going to using as white boards in our dining room for school sitting next to my desk. I just need to get my husband to add the hardware to the back so I can hang them up.
