Spray-Paint Frame

Place the frame on a drop cloth outside. Spray on one light coat of spray paint. Add two more coats of spray paint to fully cover the frame. Let dry according to the spray-paint instructions.

Attach Frame + Style

Put glass back in the frame. Place fabric in the frame on top of glass. Use dry-erase markers to write messages on the glass. The markers will easily wipe off. Use the board as a message center or a place to jot down to-do lists. It will definitely look better than any store-bought wipe-off board.
