DIY Dry Erase Calendar Board

lovely idea 10.24.14
I made a dry erase calendar board from an old picture frame and burlap. Instead of buying dry erase markers, I just use a Sharpie instead. I love having the calendar in plain view! To see more, go to my blog...

    Neat idea. I need to find a large enough picture frame to do this with. I'll use linen since my allergies don't get along well with burlap! The burlap looks awesome though.

    Becky, My first thought was to use linen as well but I didn't have any on hand and live about 40 miles from the nearest store that carries it. I still may change mine as well!

    That can be a problem. I live just 12 miles from Omaha and their fabric stores, but for a project like this you could cut up a linen garment.

    what makes it erasable? Is something placed over the burlap?

      Kathy Kozak Peterson You write on the glass. I made something similar a few years ago with smaller frames. Using scrap book paper on the inside and gluing magnets on the back to make dry erase memo boards. Really easy, really cute

    If you can't get to a fabric store you could use the brown packaging paper and still have the same look. I found a large roll of the paper at Walmart on the aisle with mailing envelopes and tape, etc.

    So practical! What a great idea! The burlap gives it a homespun look.
