Idea Exchange: How to make your own dry-erase board
Mar 01, 2013
Using black pinstripe tape to make thin horizontal lines and black craft paint to make a thick vertical line, we created two full white boards. The melamine board works just like a white board—the dry erase marker comes off with a wipe (and sometimes with a bit of alcohol if we've left the marker on for several days)—but costs a lot less.
On our D.I.Y. dry-erase board, our patients are color-coded by reason for being in the hospital. Red is for emergencies, blue is for daily cases and routine surgical cases, and green is for shelter animals.Michelle Grimes, veterinary technician
