NYTTJA? I dunno what it means, but I'll take two.

I love IKEA. I have an IKEA problem. I need a 12-Step IKEA program. It's about 45 minutes away from home, but I still manage to go there every other month or so. The stuff is so cheap, I just can't help myself!

A few trips ago I bought a couple of $1.99 frames - with other intentions, of course. They ended up being the wrong size for my original purpose... so I re-purposed!

I made a dry erase board for The Punk! It was easy as pie. Well, a whole lot easier than pie, because pie is actually a fairly complicated pastry to make, but I digress...

I simply put a sheet of printer paper in the frame. Bam! Done! Dry Erase Board!

I feel so accomplished. I think I deserve a pie :)

The "glass" is actually a pretty flexible plastic that I feel pretty safe handing over to The Punk. I doubt it would/could shatter or hurt someone (unless thrown like a Ninja Star) but your mileage may vary.

It's perfect for a kitchen thing. And by kitchen thing - I mean something-to-keep-The-Punk-busy-while-I-load-the-dishwasher toy. Plus it has educational value, and encourages art!

I love IKEA. I love IKEA. I love IKEA. I love IKEA. I love IKEA. I love IKEA. I love IKEA.

  1. Cool! I've used frames too for dry erase! :) You can see the chore chart one on my blog... but I made a "fancy" one with burlap background for my kitchen. Fun!
