* 8″ X 11″ Photo Frame (purchase at Dollar Tree)
* Packing Tape
* 8 Discontinued Paint Sample Charts from paint store ~ Ask at the paint store for discontinued paint charts and choose the colors you would like for your Dry Erase Boards
* Thin tip dry erase marker (Dollar Tree)
Step 1: The names of the paints will be on the charts, so you will cut the names off, you will want to make sure the names are on either side of the charts and easily removed with plenty of space to use for writing
Step 2: Once you have all the names cut off you will put one chart next to your next paint chart that you want into your dry erase board and then tape the top and bottom. Then put one more piece of tape in the middle. You will do this on the back side of the charts while making sure that the lines on the front of your chart are lined up.
Step 3: Continue to tape all the color charts together till all 8 are taped together. If you choose a larger frame then given you will need more charts to fill the frame.
Step 4: Take off the back of your picture frame and put the charts inside of the frame with color charts facing down. Then replace the back of the photo frame.
Your photo frame is now ready to use as your DIY dry erase board. You will write on it with your dry erase marker and make it your daily chore chart, your calendar or whatever your family is in need of. You can also make it a message board as well if you choose. Then just write on it and you can wipe it off easily at any time and restart your board. It’s such an easy project but helps to keep you organized.
