Refrigerator Reminders

Our husbands are great! They help with the kids, cooking, and housework (yeah, we're lucky gals!). But sometimes they need a little help remembering the "Honey-Do" lists we give them, or they "magically" get misplaced. So we decided to help them out by turning an ordinary picture frame into a dry erase board. But where to put it? We realized that it needed to be some place the menfolk can't miss it: The Fridge! Here's how we did it!

What You Need:
  • Picture frame
  • Paint (and possibly primer)
  • Magnets
  • Glue Gun

Our picture frame was a great deal, but it was not the most attractive one in the world. So we first sprayed it with a coat of primer. Don't forget to take the glass out before you start painting!

And once that dried, we chose to spray paint it with this sassy Paprika color (the same color we used on our Recycled Wall Art).

When it's dry, flip it over, remove the stand that's attached to the back. Then hot glue your magnets to the back, being sure to keep them clear of the little door in the back in case you want to change up the any paper or fabric you might put inside. Our frame turned out to be heavier than we thought, so we had to use quite a few magnets to hold it up!

Replace the glass, flip it over, and stick it to the fridge! Now your new dry erase board is ready for "Honey-Do's"....

and "I Love You's"!

Pin It!
