DIY Wipeboard

Hey there! Do you always need a to do list, so you do not forget stuff easily? But, let's recycle paper? (:
Today I'm going to show you a cute, simple way to reuse a old picture frame, and transform it in a little "white board!"

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

What you will need:
- A old picture frame
- Decorative paper
- Paint (this is optional: you'll only use it if you want to change the color of your frame)
- A dry erase marker (to write in the board)
- Paintbrushes (if you are painting)

Step 2: Take Your Photo Out of the Frame and Add Decorative Paper

First, take your photo out of the frame. After that, cut the decorative paper to the size of your frame. You can use the picture it comes with or even the backing. Then, use decorative paper (it can also be a picture) for the "background". Something really cool is that you can change the paper as many times as you want!

Step 3: (optional) Painting the Frame

If you want to paint the frame:
Remove the glass and picture/ decorative paper you added in earlier. Make sure you put some type of protection under the frame so you don't paint all of it. If you are spray painting it, make sure you are on a well ventilated area. If you are painting it with paint, try to give nice, even coats.
After that, add your picture again.

In my case, I chose not to paint. But do what you want to.

Step 4: You Are Done!

Now, just get your dry erase marker and start writing! Thank you for viewing this tutorial.
