The saga of the chalkboard calendar....

So while in the planning stages of the studio, I saw a chalkboard calendar. I fell in love with it and really wanted it... but it was $80, which was absolutley worth it, it just wasn't money I'd calculated into the budget. I passed but was kind of disappointed.
I talked to two of my best friends about it and we had the "You could make that..." with my response being, "Well yes, I could.... but  I'm probably not GOING to" conversation. We talked about it a bit more and I kind of shelved the idea because I didn't know that I had that kind of time.
Without my knowing  my mom decided to buy it for me for a studio opening gift, only to discover that they numbers were actually PAINTED onto the chalkboard. Um... that's not really going to work because not every month starts with the 1st on a Monday. So she told me and we kind of laughed and then.... it happened. The PERFECT frame happened to be RIGHT there and $3. So I acquired a frame that had a piece of pressboard in it and tada.

So, I refreshed the frame and created it myself. I already HAD the chalkboard paint and stuff from the other things. Everything you see here is permanent, but I left the month and days blank to be written on with chalk.

I am in LOVE with it. I am sooooooo happy with it and it fills in a spot by the front door perfectly.

The only left to do is write in classes on it! :D


  1. The board looks great, a perfect addition to the studio. :)

  2. I love this chalkboard and the frame is beautiful! So excited to see updates and posts about the studio!
