Dry Erase Board

Current dilemma:  I have a magnet board in my kitchen that I modpodged the frame of about 4 years ago- it definitely needs to be redone.  When I was debating about whether I should modpodge it again or just sand it all off and paint it, I thought maybe I should just replace it with a dry erase board.  I instantly decided against that because although the white board is practical, it just isn't cute.  Today I came across this tutorial from Bird and Berry.  Beautiful, classy, and practical.  While you're there you should check out this tutorial for a kids' playhouse- it's been on my to-do list since last Thanksgiving.

P.S.  Please look at how cute her nail is.  She glued a button to it.  Why have I never seen this before?  It's brilliant.  I'm the idiot that's always trying to wrap and knot my ribbon around the nail to try & conceal it- not anymore.

P.P.S.  I've heard of tea bag dying before, but I've never done it.  Anyone know how?  Do you heat the tea bags?  What kind of tea?  Any hints would be helpful!

You make the tea according to the box directions and soak the item in it. I let the tea cool first. The stronger the tea the darker the color. Also, the longer you soak it the darker. Each tea produces a different color. Play around until you find what you like (Lipton regular tea is my fav).

Thanks for posting about my blog! Glad you liked the idea. I have a finished picture of the playhouse on my blog as-well, you can find it here. If anyone has any questions about anything feel free to contact me. Thanks
