Last year we redid
Lincoln had been wanting a weekly calendar for his room, and when I spotted this chalkboard calendar for just a few dollars, I quickly snatched it up. The simple design, and the black & white color was perfect for his room, however I didn’t love that it was a chalkboard. While pretty, chalkboards can be annoying if you will be regularly changing it up, they don’t always fully erase and writing with chalk is messy. So we decided to turn it into a dry erase wall calendar! With just an acrylic sheet and a few tools, we were able to quickly turn this chalkboard calendar into a dry erase calendar. (And no, this is not Lincoln’s to do list, I just put random things that are typically on my calendar…let’s not have date nights yet for my boy!! )
What you need:
chalkboard calendar (we found ours in the Target dollar bins, you can use any type of wall calendar, as long as you can drill through it)
Use table saw to cut acrylic sheet to the size of your calendar board. (Some home improvement stores will do cuttings for you, so you can always ask if yours does if you don’t have a table saw)
Sand edges of acrylic.
Use drill (with drill bit the diameter of your screw posts) to drill holes in the corner of the acrylic sheet and the chalkboard, making sure to line up the holes with each other.
Insert screw posts and tighten with screw driver.
