    DIY Oversized Chalkboard Calendar

    Materials Needed: 4×8 sheet of smooth plywood Chalkboard Paint ScotchBlue Delicate Surfaces Painter’s Tape Putty knife White latex paint Paintbrush Lint-free paint roller Paint tray Sanding block (optional) Note: Follow all ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape package instructions for proper surface cleaning and prep, adhesion and removal. Step 1: Make sure your plywood is free from any splinters or cracks. Sand edges smooth if necessary using a sanding block. Paint the entire sheet of plywood with chalkboard paint using a lint-free foam roller. Allow to dry for 24 hours. Step 2: Use ScotchBlue Delicate Surfaces Painter’s Tape to tape off a border around the outside perimeter of your calendar; this will act as a placeholder for your border. We chose to do a traditional monthly calendar on the left side and a large “Notes” section on the right side. Our border was approximately 4 inches on the bottom, sides and approximately 8 inches on the top of the calendar to allow space to label the days of the week. To make this easier, we used 4 rows of the 1.88 inch wide ScotchBlue Delicate Surfaces Painter’s…

  • Free kids classes at Michaels

    Back in Class: Free Classes at Michaels

    This month as part of the Michaels Makers program, we were challenged to try something new creatively!  For this challenge, we decided to get our kiddos involved. We have been soooo busy lately and with 8 kids between the two of us, sometimes it’s hard to sit down and get creative with our little ones and boy, do they love it when we do. We decided a kid’s class would be the best for everyone! Michael’s kids classes are FREE and the supplies for the class were even included. Most of the classes are free and you can try out a new craft skill for just the cost of supplies. For this class, they were making these cute pendant banners for Summer! The kids thought it would be fun to make them with their names on them and it was a huge hit! They were so excited to have some crafting time with us and Michaels made it so easy for that to happen. Another way you can get creative is by trying out a craft kit at Michaels. They have everything…

    Ikea Large Wall Clock Makeover

    Hi again! It’s Bettijo from Paging Supermom. A couple weeks ago I shared my urban farmhouse kitchen makeover here on Classy Clutter, and I’m back today, as promised, to share a tutorial for the large yellow wall clock featured in my kitchen — it’s an Ikea hack, and I know you’re going to love it! I am betting many of you will want to make your own large wall clock — especially as soon as you see how easy it is — so today I’ll walk you through it. I began with Ikea’s Bravur clock. I really loved the look of schoolhouse clocks, but couldn’t find one large enough for my kitchen. The Bravur clock was the right size at 23-1/4 inches wide, but I was not too keen on the clock’s face, and I wanted it to be yellow. So I decided to give Ikea’s Bravur clock a makeover. First I took the clock apart by removing the four screws on the back of the rim. I put the parts in a safe place so I’d have them when…
