Get The Message

Function and Form.....put them together....Success.

Recently while working on a client's office we had one of these "success" moments.  We needed a big white board (dry erase) for planning and tracking events but we had just styled the office and the "white board look" was not working.  We needed something with the same great function of the white board but with  more style and personality.  I suggested a big frame, painted out to compliment the room. We were also watching our cost so we did some digging.  We found an old picture frame and removed the art work, spay painted the frame, tricked it out with some silver accent paint, spray frosted the back of the clear glass so it was opaque,  and put it back together.  The glass works just like a white board but with more style.....Success.  

Use this idea in whatever size you need or whatever frames you already have. A cute little frame painted white by the fridge for a grocery list, a black frame by the back door to leave a message for family, frames painted in bright lacquer colors (one for each family member) for messages or chores.....you get the idea.  Magnetic paint could also work on the back of the glass to magnetize your white board.

Leave a message.......With STYLE
