Cassandra's Altered Dry Erase/ Chore Board

Happy Friday Everyone!
Sorry its been a bad posting week. I hope to get more posted next week! Today's post is to show you the Dry Erase board I bought at Target, altered, and hung on my daughters door. She'll like it for now- til it lists more chores! HAHA!

I paid $2.50 for the board, it included 2 magnets, 1 magnetic dry erase marker, and a magnetic eraser.
I decorated the black magnets with Prima flowers and some bling. I covered chipboard letters with MS Garnet fine glitter. Before I applied the glitter I ran it through my Xyron (face down) so I"d have an even coverage for the glitter. After I applied the glitter, I took Glossy Accents and put over the top to prevent a glittery mess, and give the chipboard a nice smooth shine to it. After I let them dry overnight, I applied them to the top of the dry erase board frame using Zots (a very sticky and thick version of glue dots). I then took more primas and some tulle and made a pretty flower to put next to her name. I applied the flower using Zots. Thank you for looking! I'd love to hear what you think! Comments are great!
