One of the most simplest and smartest ideas I’ve seen in awhile comes from Ideal Home via Design*Sponge. Try this DIY project in one day and have years of monthly schedules written right in front of you and your desk. Tape out your squares and buy three shades of chalkboard paint. Use one color as your field color by painting the entire wall and use the other two colors as your accents for the calendar. What I enjoy most about this scheme is the variation of grays and the contrast of white chalk and accessories. It really adds a nice punch to your home and/or corporate office. Try it and be sure to send me a pic.
