  1. I have used that idea! It’s a good one. And it’s still cheaper than buying the individual dry erase board from my local dollar store. Another idea is to buy the dry erase spray paint or tape from your local hardware store. It’s about $3.50 per can, but you can create several boards using cardboard pieces.

    • Oh, that’s a great idea! I’ve seen dry erase paint before. I didn’t know if it would work because I tried something similar with chalkboard paint and that did not turn out how I wanted.

      I’m going to try that out. 😀
