{DIY} Paint Chip Calendar

It has been a while! I have missed all of you. Sorry for such a long absence. When life calls...you must answer. We have been very blessed to have a successful real estate business this year. We are also almost finished with our latest flip home. Can't wait to share the pictures. So all in all...it has been a whirlwind the past few weeks.
I also owe all of you a big THANK YOU as I have hit 1,000,000 page views this past week as well as 400 facebook "likes" and 1400 pinterest fans! I truly love this blog and am so thankful to all of you that follow along. Stay tuned for a giveaway coming this evening!

BUT...today I am going to share with all of you a really easy and cheap DIY to get you organized for your summer activities.



A few weeks ago I bought a large frame (20x30) at walmart for $5.00! It was such a great deal that I knew I had to do something with it. Then I found this pin on pinterest. Even though I have a calendar on my phone and computer, it is always nice to see everything planned out in front of me. It helps me stay sane!

So...first I did a little fixing to the ugly frame.


It went from a blah faux wood grain to white then I bumped it up a notch and added gold trim with a gold leaf pen.

I then wrapped the backing of the frame in linen fabric I had on hand and laid out the paint chips the way I wanted them.


These paint chips also came from Walmart. They are perfect because of the holes at the top for putting the dates into. 

I hot glued the paint chips onto the linen fabric and placed the frame back on. 



I added the month, dates & activities onto the glass with  vis a vis pens. And....








I am very happy with how it turned out! Think of all the possible colors and ways you could use these particular paint chips. Now I am organized for whatever summer activities lie ahead!

Happy Friday my Friends!


P.S. Make sure you stop back this evening to kick off our great giveaway! Thanks for being such amazing readers! XOXO

  4. I've seen this project on pinterest and have been meaning to get around to making one! Yours turned out great, and I love that it's much larger than the one that I originally saw. I love that you can change out the colors and everything if the mood ever strikes!
