Washi Tape Dry Erase Board

Are you working on getting organized this month? I know the second the holidays are over I’m ready to start de-cluttering and get our entire home organized. School and basketball season started back up this week, that means its back to a daily organized schedule for our family. Everyone is so busy that it helps to keep a visual reminder of what we have going for the week as well as what we are planning on having for dinner. My new washi tape dry erase board is a great way to help us with our schedules.

DIY Dry EraseSupplies needed to create your own washi tape DIY dry erase board:

I began by painting the board with acrylic paint. What’s great about the dry erase board is that you can customize it to your home decor color preferences and even add embellishments, like washi tape, around the edge.

DSC_0910Once the paint was dry I used a pencil to mark where my washi tape lines were going to be placed. To give the board a fun twist, I layered two washi tapes slightly overlapping each other.

boardThen using strips of washi tape, I cut “labels” for each day and one for notes. To make them look like arrows I slightly folded one end in half then snipped the corner off.  Let’s pretend I’m not in a desperate need of a manicure, OK? ;)

  1. Simple and adorable – What a great way to stay organized!

  2. I love it! I just ordered my dry erase board after searching for one in every shop in town today! I guess my newly organized life starts next week! Thanks for that! :)

  3. Fabulous!

  4. So cute! I have a chalkboard for my week, but if I did not, I would do this. I am thinking I may do this for my bedroom because I am always thinking what do I have for the week & it is in our dining room.

  5. Another great idea how to use that awesome Washi tape. TFS! :-)

  6. I love this! It is so cute! This would be a perfect project for me to finally use my dry erase vinyl I purchased over a year ago. :)
