DIY Dry Erase Calendar


SAM_5459
This week I’ve been working on an organizational wall for my office.  There are just so many great ideas out there in blogland that it was hard for me to decide what to do!  I knew I wanted a calendar to glance at but not necessarily to wrote notes on.  I saw this one on Pinterest from Lindy at Cottage Hill.
This was perfect for what I was looking for and I had everything on hand.

I used a frame that was more square in shape. After removing the picture. I cut a piece of burlap to fit.  I also cut out a piece of paper to fit to practice on.  I wanted it to look neat and evenly spaced.

After getting the spacing right, I applied to grid to the burlap using a fine point Sharpie pen.  For the little corner, I chose a piece of clip art.  I did not transfer it, I just printed out a copy and positioned it in the upper left hand corner.
This beautiful fleur-de-lis from The Graphic Fairy was perfect.

I’m sorry about the glare!  I love how it turned out! This is not the original frame.  Hunter was making me one for another project and I got him to just make one for this so they will match since they will be on the same wall.  He did an excellent job!  I can’t wait to show you the other one he made for me!  I was so excited when he brought it in!  It turned out even better than I expected!  To see my inspiration for the office makeover, check out my Pinterest page.
