I was flipping through the Pottery Barn Teen magazine a few weeks ago and came across this tile set I thought would be PERFECT for my 12 year old daughter's room. She has tons of wall space above her desk. Perfect!
So, I showed the picture to my husband and we make a trip to Lowes for the supplies.
We bought a sheet of white board (and had them cut it into 2 3x3 foot (plus a couple inches for the border) pieces. (Which meant we could make one for my craft room too!)
Then we found some simple trim. Which my husband cut for me when we got home.
I had found 12x12 inch corkboard squares in a pack of 4 at Michaels and of course had scrapbook paper on hand.
Over all, we were able to make 2 of these for less then $20 each. That's much better than what you'd have to pay Pottery Barn for... are you ready for this? $339.00 **If you hurry, there is a special going on now.. ONLY $299.00. *sarcasm*
Here's how we made my daughters:
This was where my husband got me to. Framed white board. Ready to go.
Then I glued on corkboard and scrapbook paper in the squares I wanted.Then in the large open square, I decided to make her a big calendar she could keep track of special dates for assignments (ha, yeah right!) and birthdays...
Then I had hubby hang it above her desk! Voila! I bought her some white board markers and some fun push pins... and let her GO!I will post a pic of mine. I'm trying to find some 12x12 magnetic sheets so mine will be magnetic (unfortunately the whiteboard at lowes was NOT)
