I was at Ikea picking up a few things and browsing when I ran across the MALM white glass dresser tops. I’ve been wanting a glass dry erase board but haven’t found the right items to build one until now.
I bought the 401.606.47 which 31 1/2″ x 18 7/8″. They have one shorter 15 3/4″ and one longer 63″ sizes. I also bought the RIBBA Picture Ledge 501.525.95 to use as a Dry Eraser pen tray and lower mount for the board.
The one modification I did to the RIBBA Picture Ledge was to cut a channel for the board to rest in when mounted on the wall. I cut a 1/8″ wide 1/4″ deep channel on my table saw.
