Tuesday Made It!

 So this post is a day late BUT I wanted to share a little something I created and I LOVE!

So as a new teacher I need a calendar but I haven't found one that I really like. So with a little inspiration from Pinterest I created this beauty!

Here is how I did it :)

1. I went to the thrift store and bought this picture... I got the biggest frame I could find! It cost me 10 bucks which was pretty cheap for such a large frame!

2. I ran to Walmart and grabbed a bunch of paint chips, a foam brush, a poster board, double stick tape, and some paint.

3. I got to work! I painted the frame this lovely blue color. It needed a couple coats before it looked good.

4. Then I laid all the paint chips out and cut them down to a size where they would all fit on the poster board I bought (a regular size poster board fit perfectly inside this frame!) I then arranged all the paint chips lightest to darkest and taped them to the poster board using the double sided tape. 

5. Then I printed the days of the week and stuck them on. I then stuck it all in the frame and now can write on the glass with whiteboard marker! There you have it! It turned out really great :) I will probably put it above one of my short shelves in my room! Yay!
