Do we have a category for "Why didn't we think of that?" Because this idea would go there. A dry erase board doesn't have to be a plain, white rectangle. It can be functional when you need it, and cute when it's off duty.
We're so glad that Brittni from Paper n Stitch opened our eyes to this. We love that she broke through the assumption that a dry erase board has to be plain white and customized one according to her taste. She has a complete tutorial here, and lots of other cool projects here.
