What I did during nap time

We are in the middle of redecorating our home office. I've already painted it, had an electrician install a ceiling light and ordered a new organizational piece of furniture. I'll be posting the "before" and "after" photos in the next few weeks. One thing I really wanted was a nice big family calendar and bulletin board to help stay organized. Pottery Barn has an awesome system where you can mix-n-match, but each piece that I wanted was $44 (sale price) + the cost of the system that allows you to hang it on the wall. It was going to cost $130 for what I wanted.

I found this 35" x 22" white board at Target for about $20

Using a black permanent marker, I measured and drew the lines for 2 monthly calendars.

And, that's it! I used dry-erase markers for the dates and all the notes. The finishing touch will be to do something about the name of the month. I'm going to run out and get magnetic "paper" so that I can just make magnets for each month. It will look so much cleaner and professional if the months are typed, don't you think?

Way to go girl. Very clever idea. Can't wait to see the "new" office.
