DIY Dorm: Desktop Dry Erase Board

Staying organized is one of the most important things a college student can do. Papers, tests, meetings – as the semester moves along, things can really pick up. Make your to-do lists a little more fun with this easy and inexpensive DIY! With just a few materials, you’ll have a new dry erase To-Do list right on your desk.

 

What You’ll Do:

1) Remove the picture frame backing board (the cardboard part attached to the stand) from the frame. Using a pencil and the scrapbook paper, trace around the rectangular part of the backing board. Once you have the tracing, cut out the rectangle.

2) Now, place the glass front in the frame (wipe off any smudges first!). After, place in the scrapbook paper – the way that you would with a photograph. Then, put the backing board in place.

3) I decided to add a some studs to the corners, just for extra decorations.

4) Now, using dry erase markers, you can keep an easy to-do list right on your desk! Just wipe off the writing anytime you need an update!

What’s the first item on your To-Do list?
