DIY Dry Erase Boards (From Cabinet Doors!)

Megan Duesterhaus

My latest organization solution for our home office cost me $20, took me a weekend to pull together, and helped clean out the garage! Do I have your curiosity piqued yet?

Years ago, I removed the doors to an old china hutch and (of course!) stashed them away knowing they could someday be transformed into something useful and beautiful. After rearranging our home office in recent weeks, I was suddenly in desperate need of an over-sized dry-erase board for above my work counter. I instantly remembered the old doors hoarded away in our garage, and an idea was born. After some paint, wrapping paper, and a few hours of my time, these doors have indeed been given a fresh new life!
