Parchment Board

I used my tea stained paper to make this "parchment board" version of a white board. The idea is that you fill a frame with a solid or very lightly patterned background and then use dry erase markers on the surface as a "white board" for notes, reminders, etc.. In this case, I am using a few of these in the kitchen. I like the sort of medieval-meets-modern look of these with faux parchment paper. I plan to do this with some embellished gothic frames.

Instead of plain backing, you could fill it with a printed list of categories and blank spaces, a chore list, or anything really. Since items can be written on the surface and erased away any time, it's a neat way to do a checklist.

To create the board all I did was glue down the tea stained paper to a backing piece and placed it in a frame. I hung the frame, got a dry erase marker, and was all set. Standard erasers work fine. Check thrift stores and yard sales for large frames.

My kids are teens so I think I would do this differently if I had small children that might be using the board. You can always use Plexiglas. I tested dry erase markers on Plexi that I have and it didn't stain. Also, you can screw the frame right into the studs and make it so it can't wriggle (or swing from its nail) when it is in use. Just pre-drill a hole in the top center of the frame and the bottom center of the frame when it is empty. Then pre-drill the wall and carefully secure your filled frame with screws.
