Dry Erase Teen Art


In my continuing quest to make crafts to auction off this October, I have a dry erase board/teen art.

This frame was the glassless frame I got at the base thrift store for a quarter (the bottom one)

Conveniently the frame that I turned into a clip message center, was the exact same size, so I was able to steal the glass from it.

I began by taping a plus sign/Swiss cross to the glass (on a cleaned side) and spraying the glass orange.

To get the paper/tape off without peeling any of the paint off, I used an xacto knife to cut around the edges to make it crisp. Next I sprayed the whole back white.

I then used the xacto knife to scrape away some of the white, using a ruler on the edges of the cross to make sure my lines were straight, and then I sprayed silver paint over that layer. The last step was to spray-paint the frame to match.

Once it is all put back together, with the paint on the inside of the glass, it can’t scrape off, and the surface works perfectly for a dry erase board and it doubles as wall art (I sort of envision it in a teen room)

This is going with all the other items I’m sending to the Spouses’ Club silent auction fundraiser this October.
