Let's Get Started

STEP 1

Step 1

Once you choose your frame, measure the inside of it, so you are measuring the frame’s opening. Then, measure the fiberboard 2 inches wider and longer than the frame’s measurements. Mark the measurements with a pencil to guide you when cutting.

STEP 2

Step 2

Using the Dremel Ultra-Saw and cutting wheel, cut the fiberboard following the lines drawn in step 1.

STEP 3

Step 3

Next, coat the fiberboard with Chalkboard paint, and then wait for the paint to dry.

STEP 4

Step 4

Once the paint is dry, add an outline of construction adhesive to the frame and place the painted fiberboard on the adhesive. Let dry the suggested amount of time on the bottle of adhesive. Hang with wire by the back door with notes and reminders or in an office as a noticeable to-do list.
