Have something old or outdated or something you just want to give a makeover? Here is where we take all kinds of stuff and make it look awesome! (This list grows regularly!)
I took an old large wipe off board and gave it a quick makeover. This is where I keep track of what I need to do everyday for my website but it could certainly be used for a multitude of things such as an inspiration board or a family center. With some colorful wipe off markers, a box holder I made myself and some fun things I had lying around already. I created not only a useful item but one I love to look at!
- Large wipe off (dry erase) board (if its magnetic too, all the better!)
- Wipe off markers.
- Printables, quotes, stickers, etc.
- Washi tape
- Cereal box
- Colorful paper
- POUCH: X-acto type knife, tape, glue, scissors, ruler, heavy duty double sided tape
Optional download sheet with labels to cut and place on your board.
I had an old wipe off board that was not being used. The first thing I did was clean it off. Some of the marks did not want to come off easily. If that’s the case use some rubbing alcohol to remove them easily. NEVER scrub the board with anything abrasive. It will remove the coating it needs to be able to wipe off the markers.
Next I chose some Washi tape and put a strip around the entire edge of my board.
I used a few of the printable cutouts.
I made a pouch to hold my markers and eraser from a cereal box. I just measured it the size I wanted, cut and taped it up then measured and cut some matching scrapbook paper to cover it with. I edged it with my Washi tape.
Attach the pouch to your board with some heavy duty mounting tape.
I added a few fun things to my board. Quotes, photos, and my Shawn the Sheep. If your board is magnetic you can glue magnets on the back of things and use magnetic holders.
2014 was our very first year and it’s been a great one! We’ve found a welcoming home in the blogging community and have been so grateful for all those who have and continue to visit our site to get ideas and inspiration. As we are still growing and finding our footing, there will be changes coming in the future. This year we hope to bring in more green living ideas. Roy is anxious to get going on those as that is a large area of interest for him. So you’ll see him popping in on more and more articles as time goes by.
In the meantime here are some of our more popular posts. We had quite a few that went viral so it was hard to choose which one’s to put in this collage. If you happened to miss any of these the links to each item is below the photo.
