What You’ll Need for this DIY Chalkboard Wall Calendar:
- Frogtape or masking tape
- Tape measure
- Chalkboard Latex Paint
- Foam Roller
Step 1: Measure the area.
Find an area in your workspace where you can paint your custom wall calendar. Measure it by calculating the spacing you’ll need per day, week and month. It’s a huge help to write down your measurements to make your plan easier to follow.
Step 2: Tape
Use the measuring tape and follow the plan you’ve crafted in step one. Tape your wall following the 2017 wall calendar’s pattern. To save time, make little dots every few inches instead of drawing full lines when you’re taping the spaces. And then, simply run the tape by connecting the dots!
Step 3: Paint your calendar
Take your foam roller and start painting away. It usually takes three coats of the chalkboard paint to achieve the best surface. Be patient and wait for the paint to dry before peeling off the tape.
Step 4: Remove the tape
When the paint is totally dry, you can remove all the tape.
Step 5: Fill up your wall calendar
Your easy and inexpensive wall calendar is almost done. Using the chalk you have, fill up your wall calendar. I highly suggest you use colored chalk so you can color-code your entries and categorize urgent projects, meetings, and even personal trips and holidays. It makes keeping track of your schedule a whole lot easier!I’ve already added a chalkboard wall in the new workspace I carved out in the basement. But that project has not sated my appetite for chalkboard painted surfaces.
Now, you can stay on top of your game without the fuss. Come on, you know making your own chalkboard office wall calendar is just what you need to keep track of your schedule — whether personal or professional. Never miss a deadline or an appointment again!
