DIY painted wall calendar

Friday, May 27, 2011

When I came across this project a while ago, I immediately bookmarked it for future reference. One day when I'm all grown up & have a house all my own, I'm going to re-create this painted chalkboard wall calendar. I have a few ideas tucked away to please my aesthetics (maybe more decorative edges, maybe piece a decorative frame around the calendar, come up with a more creative way to label the days, etc...). I look forward to making this project my own someday. Lets all cross our fingers that it happens sooner than later... ;)


Tools and Materials
Black chalkboard paint
White chalkboard paint
Pencil
Measuring Tape
Painters' Tape
Make Custom Color Chalkboard Paint.

Here's how mine could turn out! I created this one super fast in photoshop. I think it would be fun to add some wall decal borders from this website or this one, or some other decorative touches to give it a more personalized look. 
What do you think? 
Would you ever try this project in your home?

  1. We have a door in our kitchen covered in chalkboard paint and its absolutely fantastic! We use it more times per day than some of the kitchenware! I would love to have a whole wall, I think it'd be awesome!

  8. I love this! I've wanted to do a project with chalkboard paint for a while now but it's one of those things that I never had a good enough idea to make that sort of painting commitment. I would definitely do something like this on a piece that could be removed if I wanted to move it or got tired of it over the years. But I absolutely love the idea and the look of the final product!

  11. This is such a cute idea!!! The only thing is... I have had an aversion, since childhood, for chalk boards, and chalk. Something about the texture, the noise, the powderiness of chalk... yikes!!!!! I can't even write about it, and it makes me cringe! Haha :o)
