How to make a cheap DIY giant dry erase whiteboard for under $35!
I feel like I have just been throwing a bunch of DIY videos towards you guys lately! As mentioned in my previous video, we just moved from our temporary apartment to a house in Austin and have been busy trying to settle into our new home.
I am so excited because for the first time… EVER… I have my very own office space and have been trying to figure out how to set it up. A must-have for me in this new space is a place where I can write down everything I need to do and any ideas that I might have thought up during the day. I have a blank wall behind my desk that would be the perfect space for a giant whiteboard! Unfortunately, I didn’t realize how expensive giant dry erase boards are so I did my research and found this ingenious hack to make a massive 4′ x 8′ white board using white panel board from the hardware store for less than $35!
The Board I Bought:
*If you don’t have a truck or a way of transporting the board, you might be able to get the store to deliver it to you.
As I mentioned in my video, I did not come up with this DIY but got that idea after researching the topic and was inspired by other youtube videos. Here are some of the videos I watched before trying this out for myself:
• The original video I got the giant whiteboard idea from (September 7, 2009):
• Another really great video (January 16, 2016):
• Using mirror mount & plastic bracket trims (January 26, 2017):
There are a lot of people who have posted videos of this tutorial in the past, just to cover my bases, I went out and tried to find as many of these videos as I can to link to so that I am not accused of stealing the “original” video. I do not know who the very first person who came up with this video is but I am definitely not claiming to be the first:
• sayhijames (December 15, 2009)-
• Jay Bates – Woodworking Videos (Oct 20, 2013)-
• Dustin Kantu (March 15, 2013)-
• Andrew V (January 17, 2017)-
• Cecil Marche TV (August 17, 2014)-
