Chalkboard calendar

Nothing like a big ol' calendar
to keep track of the days.
Manolo made that magnetic board for our
homeschool/studio a couple of years ago.
It's a framed piece of galvanized steel that I painted
with black chalkboard paint.
It has been so useful!

It looks lovely, especially the twinkly lights. I've never tried blackboard paint. :-)

Very cool. I bought a piece of galvanized steel a year or two ago but never did anything with it. How did you manage to frame yours?

Oh that is BEAUTIFUL!

I have been searching for the perfect datebook for YEARS. In fact, two years ago, in my frenzy I spent 100+ on yet another datebook, only to be disappointed. Last week I finally got around to ordering the book you use and AT LAST! I love it! I'm so thrilled that I discovered your blog!!! I can't wait to take my Sharpies to it! Thank-you, thank-you, THANK-YOU!

Fantastic idea! I really love to have something like that, but does it need a lot of cleaning? I mean the chalk's dust?

Galvanized steel - so is it magnetic? I'm thinking that my husband could make one like this for me - perfect for our schooling too. Manolo is very talented - I love the little cabinet with all the drawers too.
