The second quick project is a custom dry erase board. I'd been seeing them all over the internet but this one using fabric really caught my eye. I picked up a gross old picture frame from the thrift store and painted it silver with some spray paint left over from another project I can't even remember. I just covered the back insert in fabric, added some light blue trim and voila! custom dry erase board. The frame is about 18 x 21 so not huge but big enough to be useful. I hung it up in my cubby at work to keep track of all I have going on. I had the fabric and trim on hand, and chose the fabric because I thought the lines were nice for something that was likely going to be used to make lists. In addition, I wanted light colors (so I could see what I was writing). Anyone who's ever seen my stash would know how hard it is to find a piece of fabric with light colors, so I was glad to un-bury this.
So, do any of you guys pinterest? Have you made anything you've pinned there? That site is at once the most fabulous and worst thing ever! There are so many inspiring things I want to try and having them all there staring at me is very distracting.
