Sunday Afternoon Project

I got the itch to craft today.  David had a white board/bulletin board that we thought about hanging in our kitchen, but it was pretty old so we had decided we would just replace it and get something else at some point.

Then yesterday I was on Pinterest and saw this dry erase calendar made from paint chips and I knew I'd found my project :)

I went to Walmart today and bought poster board and perused the paint chips.  I tried to find colors that went together but that you could still read the writing over them.  Until now I didn't even realize how similar my colors are to the original one--I just liked the way these all went.

I also decided to add some scrapbook paper to the side for other notes.  We need a place for our grocery list and then I have a spot for any other notes-- an idea I got from Erin's board that she made last year.

I really like the way it turned out!  I plan to go buy a few new dry erase markers tomorrow so we can color code it for activities that are mine, David's or both of ours :)

The best part about this project is that I already had a frame I wasn't using and paint chips are free, so it cost me 30 cents.  Love it!  Great way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.
