DIY Dry Erase Message Board from A Picture Frame

A Dry Erase Message Board for busy kitchens. Leave your family little notes using this decorative and useful message board made from a picture frame. Paint the glass any color to match your decor.  Use a dry erase marker to leave notes and they easily wipe off with a dry cloth.   

DIY Dry Erase Message Board

Using a picture frame you can make your own dry erase message board. I found this frame at a garage sale last year for .25 cents. What a perfect craft it turned out to be!

What you will need:

Picture frame with glass

Acrylic paint

Dry erase markers-You can get them at the Dollar Store!

Paint brush

Ribbon

Painted clothespin if you want to glue it on the frame for handy notes.

Message Board Supplies

After you have cleaned the glass, paint one side. I used Americana Acrylic Paint, Indian Turquoise and love these Foam Paint Brushes!

I gave it 2 coats of paint.

After the paint has dried, put it back in the frame with the painted side facing the back.  Hot glue a bow on top and a clothespin. (optional)

Use dry erase markers to write notes on the glass and easily wipe them off with a dry cloth.

    This is such a great idea, Marti! I’ve seen these before with a print behind the glass, but I like the colored glass even more:)

      Oh, that’s a good idea…I didn’t think of using scrapbook paper. I like the paint, too! 🙂

    What an adorable idea! I’ve heard of using glass as dry erase board, but I never would have thought to paint the back side of it – cute! (stopping by from SITS!)
