Glass is just as effective with dry erase markers as those "white boards"! Look for cool frames at the dollar store or recycle some old ones- check at yard sales maybe. Then get creative with spray paint, acrylic paint, deco page, hot glue gun, ribbons, buttons, bejewler- you name it! Get any size frame you want and cut a piece of white (or any color) poster board/paper to size. The only limit is you imagination!
My sewing room is black and white with polka dots so my boards are kind of plain but I plan on making some funkier and more colorful ones as gifts :)
Craft on my friends!
