This was a lot of work, but I think it turned out great!
Who I got the idea from: Girl Loves Glam
Time: 5+ hours
19x31 Piece of Plywood
2 8x10 Frames
2 5x6 Frames
2 Large Clips
3 Frame Hooks
2 8x10 pieces of Colored Card Stock
3 Packages of Command Strips
1 Paper Mache Box
Black Paint & foam paint brush
Hot Glue Gun
Dry Erase Markers
Nails & a Hammer
1. Paint Plywood: I had my Dad cut me a piece of plywood. I think mine is actually 19x30. The exact size fits to your needs. Then I painted the plywood & the paper mache box. I put two coats on and let dry overnight (this is why it took so long).
2. Frames: Hot Glue the glass to the inside of the frames.
3. Print Offs: Print out the lists that you want. I made my own, because I wanted them UGA themed, and I'm a bit of a freak. I also wanted to use the same font - I used Kristen. The original website had links to what she did.
Calendar: I used a table in Microsoft Word word. I left extra space at the top so I could write the name of the month. I then printed on Red Card Stock I got from Hobby Lobby. Then I put this into one of the 8x10 frames.
To Do List: I changed Microsoft Word's page size to 5x7, printed it on white paper & put it into one of the 5x7 frames.
Scrapbook Kit: I had a scrapbook kit I never used that was UGA themed. I used boards & stickers from that kit to add color to the lists.
Chore List: I knew I wanted a quarterly list, but seasonal fit better so it was named seasonal. I think the important thing to remember with this type of list is make sure you put down what you're going to do. If you're not going to vacuum every day, don't put it down. You won't want to see that on the list and you'll ignore doing it.
Menu: The menu was easy enough. Again word and 5x7. I would suggest starting the week on Sunday or Monday depending on your schedule. I do my shopping on Sunday Morning so it was best for me to put Sunday first. If in your mind you run Monday-Sunday, then put Monday first.
4. Command Strips: Put command strips on the back of each of the frames (I used 4 for the big frames, 2 for the 5x7s, 3 for the paper mache box, & one for each of the clips).
5. Picture Frame Hangers: I used the tooth hangers, because that's what the original post had. I was clearly not thinking and spent quite a bit of time putting them on the back of the board upside down. This was the hardest part, because the stupid little screws wouldn't go into the plywood. I don't really have a better suggestion other than patience & a glass of wine. Be sure the strips are level...if not then you have to make the nails in the wall uneven so that the whole thing is even.
6. Organize: Lay out the frames & clips on the board how you want them. Then peal off the command strips to put each piece on the board.
7. Hang: Hang up your frame! I used three nails, because I was sure it was coming off the wall. So far it's held up after 2 days!
Notes: Use Expo Dry Erase Markers. I bought ones with an eraser on the top. They weren't as good as Expo. If you don't plan out a menu...don't put it on there. If you know you won't use an item, then don't bother putting it on there.
