Some women are crazy about shoes; I’m all about the school supplies. Give me a pencil sharpener and a box of crayons and I’ll show you a happy girl!
Granted, I don’t have kids to send off to school, and it’s been a while since I have been in a classroom, but, I am in the middle of starting my own business. This means late nights, lots of paperwork, and a few emergency trips to Office Max. So what if I was looking for an external hard rive? Did you see the pen situation up in here?
So I stocked up.
Now. I wanted to make a dry erase board to keep stuff in one spot without ten berjillion sticky notes. I find it easier to keep track of things when they are in compartmentalized spaces, so I decided to mark off four distinctive plots. The process could not be easier, all you need to do do is grab an old picture frame and paint the back of the glass. Bam!
Step 1: Remove glass from picture frame.
Step 2: Use white craft paint to create four distinct rectangles on the back of the glass. Allow to dry. You may want to consider a second coat if the white does not appear opaque.
Step 3: Fill in any gaps with splotches of colored paint. This can be done in one swoop or several stages.
Step 4: Flip glass over and put it back in the frame, smooth side out.
Step 5: Get going and make some lists. Some notes. Some stuff. Get down to business!
…Or not. You can also use it to draw out a storyboard of last night’s True Blood episode.
