Today’s Feature Wall Friday presents something every busy family needs – a calendar feature wall.
Not only is this feature wall (found at House to Home) fun to look at, but it’s extremely helpful, too. As my kids are getting older, I’ve realized how nice it would be to have our entire month laid out in front of us on a large scale. No more excuses for forgetting events or acting like you were never told (I’m looking at you, Tom).
This one was created by painting the entire wall with chalkboard paint. When it was dry, they taped off the square grid and painted the squares in varying shades of gray. The designer used this technique to create the varying shades of gray, but you could always use tintable chalkboard paint (found at home improvement and paint stores) to have a brighter calendar.
What do you think? Could your family use a giant calendar to keep you on track as the school year gets going?
