Let there be white! (boards)

In a previous post, I talked about how I miss having whiteboards. I would love to fill the walls here at home with them, but instead, I'll make do with this, my newest DIY creation.


It's hard to see the writing because I need new markers for it, these are quite old...

So, are you curious?   It's two dollar store foam boards (color is irrelevant) with a piece of light plywood sandwiched between them, all taped together with duct tape. I then cut a piece of Panda Plastic (white on one side, black on the other) like you might already use in your grow space.  I got the idea when I remembers back before I create Grow By Wire, I used to used dry erase markers to write on the walls (that were lined with panda plastic) with dates for each plant etc.  I found that if you leave the writing on for a log time, it won't wipe off with a paper towel, but just add a little water and it cleans right up.  I put the plastic on both sides, so I can just flip it over and I have another white board...

Material List:

2 x Dollar Store Foam Board
Thin plywood roughly same size as foam board
two pieces of panda plastic to fit.
Duct Tape

I had everything already, so mine was free!
