We have a big ugly white board in the kitchen. I know it's a eye sore, but I need it there to jot down numbers and notes in hopes of a little sanity and mental order. Most people need a dry erase board of some sort handy in their home, and would love something more attractive if it didn't cost twice the price.
Aluminum dry erase boards are in all the home decorating magazines but run such a higher price tag. This DIY project teaches us how to make a dry erase board out of aluminum foil. It's inexpensive, easy and you can choose the size and style that best fits your space.
All you do is cut a piece of cardboard the size you want, flatten it out the foil and glue it down. The instructions
suggest coloring a boarder. If you want to stick it to the fridge, add a magnet to the back.
Personally, I'm looking for something that is a bit more permanent and complementary to my space. I plan on putting it in a large picture frame. Cut out cardboard to fit, cover it in foil, and put it into the frame. Choose a nice frame that compliments your decor. Whichever look your going for, aluminum foil is the material you need to make a great looking dry erase board.
