But not just any memo board, a stainless steel memo board!
Here is how to make it...
I first purchased the stainless memo board itself from IKEA. Then I visited my friendly neighborhood Home Depot where I choose my molding and had the guy cut it for me to fit around the board, which I brought with me, perfectly. He was happy to help me :).
I then simply laid the frame over the board (it fit perfectly). Thanks again Home Depot Guy!
Then, using wood glue, I attached an unused, laminated map (that I just had laying around) to the back in order to ensure that the board and the stay together. You could also use poster board... but waste not, want not, right?
Now I use China Markers to write the things I don't need erase (like days of the week) and dry erase markers for everything else. I even color code it... husband=green, me=red, daughter=pink, etc. It makes it easy to keep track of what is going on around here.
