have always been more of a chalk board type of girl, but after seeing this awesome idea that was brought to my attention by HowAboutOrange I might have to start converting to markers instead of chalk! Since deciding my craft area needed a re-vamp I have been looking for a possible chalk board situation so that I can draw out size ideas I have for knitting projects and see if they actually look good. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg though, and as I am sure most people know (although if you don't be warned) the cheap chalk boards are made of a material that seems to expel chalk as opposed to allowing you to write with it. That is why this dry erase board idea is so great! I can buy a cheap frame, to the size of my liking, and simply add fabric for a cute but functional piece of craft equipment. While I think I might always prefer the feel of chalk in my hand, I can see myself much preferring this beautiful piece on my wall as opposed to a slab of black. So, while I am still deciding whether I should buy a huge frame and go for it, I thought I would pass the awesome idea on. If I do make this I will be sure to detail the process here.
