If you are looking for a whiteboard for the home or office, you could try and save some pounds by creating your own.
Those clever people who hang out at Ikea Hackers (ikeahackers.net) have an alternative using a white glass table top, which apparently works perfectly as a whiteboard.
They recommend the TORSBY dining table top which apparently you should be able to buy seperately in store (although doesn’t seem to be available seperately online). It can be fixed to the wall using mirror fixings, and with a picture ledge fixed below for pens etc, it’s ready to use! Take a look at the pictures here.
If you need advice on how to fix somehting like this to a wall, take a look at our project on Hanging Mirrors and Heavy Pictures.
The European Federation of DIY Manufactureres (fediyma) and the European DIY Retail Association (EDRA) have announced that Mr Gilles Caille will receive the DIY Lifetime Award 2012 in Paris at the European Home Improvement Forum at the end of May.
Mr Caille is president of French DIY manufacturers’ association Unibal and also a co-founder of fediyma. He said “My dream of a strong European organisation alongside America and Asia have now been realised. Many countries have now joined fediyma and with a growing EDRA for the retailers the two associations have created a fruitful cooperation, which among others has resulted in the fediyma/EDRA European forum.”
