I talked about the process of making this board in previous posts. I promised to show you how it looks once we draw on it. We used wet erase markers to draw on it since they show up best against the navy background. Below we jotted out some schematics. See if you can guess what they are for.
I love the white markers on the navy board. It’s reminiscent of blueprints.
In case you missed the other posts, here is a quick recap of how we made the custom dry erase board:
1. We bought a 4 ft x 8 ft sheet of acrylic from a local plastics company (lexan works well, too). We had 12 holes drilled in the acrylic sheet for our stand off mounts, so we could hang it on the wall. We also had the edges fire polished to look like glass. This can be ordered in the size of your choice.
2. We painted the back side navy blue. This insured that the board would still look like glass since the front stayed clear and glossy.
3. We hung it with stand off mounts.
Below I was just having a little fun leaving a message for the hubby on the dry erase board.
Pretty fun. We’re looking forward to using it in our day-to-day life!
Oh, and the schematic… it outlines how we are doing our Christmas decorations in our home. Just kidding – it means nothing! I was just seeing if you were paying attention.
