Since joining the Pinterest world,
I have found so many things that I want to make!
One that caught my attention was a dry-erase calendar.
Check it out here: amazingness
So, I decided to make one for my office out of green paint chips.
When I went to Wal-Mart, the cashier gave me the "stink eye"
because I was carrying LOTS of paint chips.
I bet the thought going through her mind was,
"I can't believe she's getting all those paint chips for free!"
Note to self, next time I am doing a project with paint chips,
I'll remember not to go through that lady's checkout.
I then went to Hobby Lobby and purchased a 12" X 16" frame.
I didn't want a basic frame--I wanted something vintage looking.
I found a white-washed frame at half-price,
then took it home and did my own antiquing to it by
smearing some brown paint on the wood.
It came out just the way I wanted it.
Beforehand, I had cut all my paint chips to be 2" x 2".
Just enough room to write the times of important meetings.
Then I arranged the colors so that there was a
balance between light and dark colors.
And finally, I taped all the paint chips
to the blank side of the picture insert.
Then I assembled the frame together.
Took the frame to work and wrote in
all the important things I need to remember.
All you need is a dry-erase marker and it write on the glass like a charm.
I've decided that I need to make another one so that I can have a
calendar showing me what's happening next month as well.
Always gotta stay on my toes!
Can't wait to make more things from Pinterest!
