In the basement I found a photo frame that was from our previous house.
It is the largest one from the collection on the right.
I had a crazy idea that I wasn't sure would work. I wanted to use paint chip samples to make a fun-looking calendar.
I grabbed paint chips with colors that I really gravitated too. I also wanted it to look cohesive.
I had to trim them down to fit in as many as I needed.
Then I glued them to some thick drawing paper and set books on top while they dried.
I also used pretty tape to mark the top of each month. Stamped letters show the days of the week.
I put it in the frame and taped it against the glass. The frame is deep so the tape helps to keep the calendar close to the glass.
I used the dry erase markers on the glass to fill in the days.
And here it is in place. Don't mind the mess above it.
I really dislike that fluorescent light.
But I love my new calendar! I have to learn to write smaller, I think.
