My Brilliant Idea

I was trying to organize and declutter when I ran across a stack of cheap, plastic award frames. We have had these things forever. Okay, maybe not forever, but they've been hanging around for at least ten years. I think the Historian had some purpose for them, but then that event didn't take place. Anyway, there they were, taking up space. I was all set to send them to the thrift store when I happened upon an idea for making a dry erase board out of a picture frame.

So I removed the frames from the donate bag. Here's one frame.

Then I trimmed a plain piece of printer paper to fit. Did I mention that these frames were oddly sized?

 The next step is securing the paper in the frame. How? I used duct tape of course.

Here's the finished product.

But why stop there? Here's one with lined paper.

And here's one with graph paper.

The possibilities are endless. You could do maps or a periodic table or a skeleton to label. I wish I had more frames. Don't tell the Historian.
