Personalizing your own dry erase board is childsplay when you think about driving down to Walmart or Office Max to pick out an imported cookie-cutter whiteboard wrapped in a heap of misused plastic.
Choosing to whiteboard scrap wood means upcycling (environmentally friendly) and also scores you mega points for creativity. I chose a fragmented piece of wood for a raw materials appearance and its ability to fit in smaller spaces without compromising writing room.
Visual people appreciate tangible lists and many cannot function successfully without it and a whiteboard combined with your computer helps save on paper.
A resourceful characteristic when creating your own whiteboard is its ability to become double-sided, making it double functional.
What you will need:
Dry Erase paint by Rustoleum.
Lay your drop cloth down.
Sand the wood and prime it (only prime raw woods).
Use your roller and your paint tray to roll on a nice coat of the dry erase paint and let dry. Use your paintbrush for edges and corners.
It is a good idea to apply a second coat.
Let the paint dry for three days before starting to write on it to ensure proper erasing.
Here’s a tip: Each morning take a picture of your whiteboard with your cell phone to have on reference each day.
Take pleasure in a gratifying experience as you cross off items on your creatively recycled whiteboard to achieve your goals.
