Disclosure: I was given a DecoBoard in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
Am I the only one who didn’t realize that Mother’s Day is this on the 12th? I always thought it was later in the month of May. What a surprise it was for me, when I looked up what day it was, to see it’s this coming Sunday! Lucky for me, I don’t have to worry about it too much, since, you know, I’m a mother. But for any of you looking for a semi-last minute gift for the mothers. I’ve got an awesome idea for you.
How many of us see those cute, homemade calendars and menu boards on Pinterest and think, “Hm, that would be so great to have,” and then leave the thought at that. I know I do! I just don’t have a lot of time, and extra energy, to make the board — even though I wish I had one. I recently was introduced to DecoBoards Unlimited
Even if you aren’t in the market for a Mother’s Day gift, I bet you could think of someone who would love one of these. We are right in graduation season, and summer is known for there being plenty of weddings — this would be an awesome gift for any of those people. And, valid through May 31st, if you use the code KC2013, you can get 10% any purchase AND free shipping. I don’t know about you, but I think this sounds like the perfect time to stock up on some awesome gifts. I think there’s a DecoBoard for every budget. For the smallest size with no frame (which I’m sure would look awesome still) it’s about 18. Add in this discount and free shipping, and it’s even more affordable.
The Decoboards come in a variety of sizes, and can be made with different materials. You can get just a plain whiteboard (like we got,) a galvanized steel whiteboard, or a cork board. And can be as small as 12×18 or as big as 36×24. They are available with or without a custom frame, which are available for an additional cost.
It took Forrest and I forever to decided on a picture and a frame, but we finally decided on one of the Denver LDS temple, where we were married. Here is a picture of the finished product (we haven’t hung it up yet, simply because we’re moving soon):
I was seriously in awe when I saw it. It didn’t look like a whiteboard at all, but a beautiful portrait of the temple. It’s almost too pretty to write on; I kind of just want to hang it up in our living room. The quality of all the materials is amazing. You can’t even tell it’s a whiteboard by looking at it. And the frame is SO nice. I love the black color, and it just looks so fancy. I love that you can totally customize these boards to your liking. They have some stock images you can use, or you can upload any high quality photo that you have the rights to.
I also ordered a few of the deoclings. There is a to-do list, a job chart, calendar, menu, and more! If you change your mind about the look you are going for, for your board, you can switch them up super easily. I bought the smallest size, because I was thinking I would want to put them all on at the same time! But if you’re less indecisive than me, you can purchase a size that is the size of your board.
Also, you should know, that if you have trouble removing the marker from the board, just use a little bit of 91% Isopropyl Alcohol to remove the residue. This can be purchased at at pretty much any grocery or drug store.
