chalkboard calendar

Remember our chalkboard wall? 

I turned the top half into a calendar and it is pretty fabulous. I borrowed a yard stick from a friend (although I was just going to use my level), decided on a 35" wide x 26" tall calendar. My squares are 5" a piece and are the prefect size for little notes, I do wish I could get "sharper" chalk to get a finer line.The chalk just washed off with a wet cloth so when I switch it to October I will just take a wipe and clean off the numbers and notes instead of everything. One thing that I will promptly be changing is the order of the days of the week. I started with Monday, bad idea- I have been messed up since I made this. I will be starting October's with Sunday. 

Want a chalk board wall? Do it... it's just paint. If you hate it... paint over it again. Although I bet you won't hate it. 

Happy Tuesday!

I love your chalkboard wall! I use mine to write down the crazy hilarious things Lucas says.

For example:
"Mom, it was getting too late to buy you a present so you get a noogie for your birthday instead."

That's my boy...
