Ways to display your favorite quotes (or your to-do list)

If you’re a quote collector like me, you probably have one or more favorite quotes that you’d like to display. But your favorite quote this month might be replaced by a new one in a few weeks. Here’s a collection of simple ways to display any words you want, whether a quote, a Bible verse, a menu or a to-do list. Some of them will also work for a changing display of family photos.

window as whiteboard

At Cut Out and Keep, a teacher explains that she just tapes white paper to the back of the window in her classroom door to turn it into a whiteboard. You could do the same with a freestanding vintage door or window, and just paint the back of the glass.

Then, of course, there’s the ubiquitous chalkboard, which you can make…

In a couple days, I’ll post a collected of magnetic boards. Come back soon!
