Dry Eraser Board

Dry Eraser Board
Look what I did...

I love this frame and didn't really have anything to put in it so I decided to create a board that I could write on that didn't look like a chalkboard.  This is such an easy thing to do!  I was amazed.  I can't remember where I read about how to do it or I would definitely give them a plug here.

All you have to do is select a frame of any size of you're choosing.( I used an 11" x 14")  Remove the back of the frame and using a piece of sturdy cardboard or a piece of a shipping box, cut to the size of the frame.  Cut a piece of fabric that is about 3 inches larger than the cardboard and wrap it around the cardboard and secure it with tape.  The glass is placed over the fabric covered cardboard just like a picture would be.  Put the frame back together and Voila!  You can remove the marker with a paper towel. A dry eraser board that offers a bit of color and something better than a plain old chalkboard.

This will give you something to "crow about".


  1. Dearest Kris,
    ....that is really a great idea with a very impressive result. I like it.
    Thank you so much for sharing that with us!
    Warm regards,

  2. What a great idea! It looks wonderful and you're right, something a bit different than a plain chalk board:)

    BTW, I did notice you had an Etsy shop the other day and already added it to my Etsy faves:)

  3. It is very pretty but I am totally confused-how do you erase writing on fabric?

  4. thanks for the tip Kris! I might try that : )

  5. This is delightful and I would not have thought about this. Merci, mon amie!


  6. Hi, Kris, I guess I am with Kerry. I do not understand how this is a dry-erase board. Please clarify for those of us who do not get it.

  7. I love the look Kris, but I too was a bit confused about how it's a dry eraser board. Is there a sealer on the fabric?

  8. Oh I really love this board! How did you seal it to keep the rooster on there?

  9. Hey guys ... there's glass over the top. Great idea!!
    At home with the lurgy at the mo, so finally catching up with my favourite blogs! M x
