I LOVE my White Board

A few weeks ago I bought a really nasty oil painting in a really dirty but awesome frame for $9.99 at Savers. Seriously though the frame was covered in layers and layers of something very similar to poop and dirt mixed together, with a few chicken feathers glued to it. Yum Huh!! After wanting to barf, I scarped some of it off, sanded some more off then finally gave up and just sprayed a good layer of KILZ on it, which my husband swore would block any junk from seeping through. Then painted it and then sanded the edges for that nice worn look.
I bought a HUGE piece of dry erase board at Lowes, they cut it to fit in the frame and ViOla! I am in love with it, I think it looks so great on that brownish color wall. If only my hand writing was a little nicer... I am using it as a calender for the week, and also for a daily check-list.
Do you like it as much as I do?

Wow, this turned out so great! I need to go shopping with you so you can open my mind up to decorating possibilities! Also, I love Meika's b-day hat, even if it it bigger than her head :)
