On a recent trip to the Dollar store I found this frame tossed into the clearance bin. It was originally $2, but I got it for 50 cents! I wasn't sure if I was going to leave it as is with the distressed look or paint it. So once I figured out I was going to make it into a dry erase board I let Doodle Bug decide.
|He decided on red.|
|We did two coats of red acrylic paint.|
|We distressed it again because the paint was still see through and I knew it would get scratched and scuffed anyway.|
|I cut a few colors of card stock to fit the frame and stuck them all in behind the plexiglass. That way we can change the color as we like. I have some plastic that I'm going to cut to put in there later tonight so it will be kid safe.|
|So there you have my $0.50 dry erase board!|
|Doodle Bug was pleased with the result as well! Here he was showing me it made him happy and he drew me and him with hugs and kisses! How cute is he?|
