I had some pink paint chips in slightly different shades and I thought I’d make something out of them instead of throwing them away. I settled on a dry erase board.
Making dry erase boards out of frames is nothing new in the craft world. You could frame cute fabric or paper and use a dry erase marker on the glass for a memo board.
But I like the texture and stripes you get with the layers of paint chips. And there is something chic about black and pink together.
If you remember, I was in a mad dash last fall to make stuff for the craft fair… so I do not have any before/after pictures. Sorry.
But, if you are interested,
here’s how I made this board:
1. I first painted a frame black with spray paint.
2. Then, I adhered vinyl to the inside of the frame glass. I used a strip of black vinyl on the bottom and a row of quatrefoil shapes at the top.
3. I trimmed the paint chips into strips (so you no longer saw the names/writing). I layered them and glued them together using scrapbooking tape into a rectangle that would fit in the frame.
4. Then I simply popped the paint chips into the frames and wrote a cute phrase on the glass with a dry erase marker.
Well, it’s sitting a box right now waiting for my next craft fair…. (maybe next fall!)
