Picture Frame Dry Erase Board





I have been trying to find a dry erase board to put on my fridge door for months. The little cheap ones don't have flat back so they slide off the fridge. So after some brainstorming I remembered dry erase markers work on glass the same way they do dry erase boards.. So this is what I came up with.

Supplies:
-picture frame ($1)
-6 magnet strips (1)
-fabric (on hand)
-double sided tape (on hand)
Open up your dollar store frame- whatever size you want.

Flip it over and rip off the little holder. They come off very easy, just wiggle it back and forth.
Unwrap your magnets. Break them apart.

Evenly space the around the back edges of the frame. Now, take out the back of the frame and over with fabric. I used double sided tape and pulled the fabric tight on all sides. Put it all back together. And you get this little beauty...
I'm really happy with how this turned out. I'm especially happy it only took about 10 minutes :)

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?




The winds of Change...

There came a time in our lives when our planning just didn’t make the cut. We recently moved in with family due to Chevy Man injuring his foot. I know a lot of you will understand that when you live paycheck to paycheck there just isn’t enough money to put aside for a rainy day. Now I am learning to pinch my pennies even harder than I did before. Chevy Man was in an accident on September 24th with a friend and injured his foot. The first doctors told us he broke his ankle and put him into a cast and on crutches for 8 weeks, with possible surgery. I was relieved that he wasn’t hurt more than he was, but what were we gonna do for 8 weeks!?!I called my Grandma and asked if it was alright if we stayed with her for a while. We were planning on moving to this area anyways at the end of the year so that just moved us faster and in a little less desirable situation than we would have liked. But I am so very thankful for my family. They are amazing.I packed all of our belongings into a 10x10 s…

[Guest Post] Summertime Blues

Today’s post is a part of the 20 something blogger blog swap. This post is written by Kelly over at Insert Clever Title here. Which by the way, why didn’t I think of that title?! It’s awesome, Kelly! She has a great blog and I am totally hooked. I have been reading it all day. She has a great writing style and outlook on life. I’m very excited to have her as my swap partner. This is the first every guest post here at Frugal Farmhouse, so I’m a little, ok a lot excited! Also when you check out her blog, you get to check out my post on saving money in the summer.




Something about summer has lost a bit of its magic for me. I don't know if it was the summer that I graduated from college, and was suddenly, jarringly thrown into the Real World, or if was something that had been sneaking up on me for years before that.Summer vacation doesn't exist for me anymore.It makes me both sad and, admittedly, a little bitter, to lose that sense of freedom. My reward for making it through all tho…
