One night, while browsing through Pinterest, I came across this super cute idea of making a white board out of a picture frame.
I decided that with a little tweaking, I could make my own calendar that would look prettier in my kitchen.
I found a frame at a thrift store for $1.99. It was just a plain, wood frame, but the right size, and not too heavy.
I had some left over spray paint from another project, so I gave it a couple of coats of black paint.
I used a scrap of burlap that I had left over from my island skirt project to cover the back of the frame.
After cutting it a little larger than the size of the frame, I ironed it, and attached it to the cardboard backing piece with packing tape.
I created a blank calendar template and printed it onto a piece of scrapbook paper. I attached it to the burlap backing with double stick tape.
After putting the frame back together, I attached adhesive magnets to the back of the frame.
And voila - an pretty calendar for my fridge!
I like how the burlap and the black frame are harken back to the island skirt.
So all in all, a simple and inexpensive way to keep track of important dates.
