I started with my picture frame that is 16x20. I painted the glass with several coats of Martha Stewart's Chalkboard paint. Once the paint dried and I decided what size to make the actual calendar portion, I used a good 'ol Sharpie to draw the grid. I wanted the squares to be a fair size, so I made them 2"x2", making the total dimensions of the grid 14"x10" (LxH).
And what I really love??? That I found these fabulous Chalk markers to write on the calendar with. It cleans with a damp cloth and they write beautifully! No yucky, dusty, chalky mess.
Here's some closeup shots of all the fun details on this calendar:
And one more finale shot!
