No yellow stickies everywhere, no wastefulness of a hundred pads of paper, it’s the ultimate in green. And when your phone battery dies and with it your electronic to-do list, the trusty wipe board is still there faithfully leading the way. So the only problem is the 8x10 glossy white board part.

Well, in this week’s episode of Home Made Simple I give my trusty college friend a makeover to bring it into this century and into our homes. An oversized version that is as useful as it is chic…and did I mention that it can match any decor? All it takes is a piece of acrylic glass, a favorite wallpaper and a flat piece of wood. Intrigued? Tune in and I’ll show you the details!
