Chalkboard paint converts wall into calendar

The winner: My daily planner wasn’t big enough to hold all of my daily info. So I created an oversized wall calendar made of chalkboard paint! I used a yardstick to create a calendar outlay on the section to be used, creating the squares for each day. I thought it would be easier to distinguish between each day by using white paint to lighten the black paint for alternating squares. I used four different, lighter shades on my calendar. It is beautiful and functional and the kids love to draw on it after I wipe it clean. I used the leftover black chalkboard paint on a few kitchen cabinet doors, which were already black, to write grocery lists, etc. Melissa Wilson, Lincolnton
