DIY Week-At-A-Glance Calendar from Repurposed Wood

*Whew*!  I have been one busy little crafter lately!  I’ve been working on our entryway and I’m almost finished.  Today I want to show you one of the projects in our entryway, using an old piece of wood that I’ve had in my garage for over a year!

I’m a visual person, and I benefit from having a visual reminder to let me know what’s going on with our family on a day to day basis.  I use my Erin Condren Life Planner to plan things out, but to keep a weekly reminder front and center, I created a Week-At-A-Glance Board for our entryway!

Let me just tell you, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.  Let me show you what I did:
For this project I used the following supplies:
  • Fiberboard (I cut pieces from a fiberboard book kit that was on sale at Michael’s)
  • Clips
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Post-it Notes
  • E6000 adhesive
  • Wooden board
First, I cut my fiberboard into 6 pieces – one for each day of the week, but combining Saturday & Sunday into one.
I had enough of the blue quatrefoil scrapbook paper left over from my Wooden Tray Makeover to cover three of the six pieces of fiberboard.  I chose a coordinating blue toile paper for the remaining three pieces.
To create the labels for the days of the week, I use manila shipping labels and rubber alpha stamps.
Monday through Friday plus “Weekend” for the labels.
I simply attached each label to the pieces of fiberboard using glue strips.
I had my hubby cut the old board down to size, then laid out my daily clipboards.  I used E6000 adhesive to adhere the clips onto the wood.
All that was left to do was write out our to-do’s for the week on Post-it Notes and stick them on the appropriate day of the week!

Love it!  I see it everyday as I gather my purse and keys and head out the front door.  I love that I can slap a new Post-It note on every week and stay on top of our busy schedule.

How do you keep on top of things?

Stop by tomorrow when I share one more DIY project in our entryway!

  1. Kirsten, I LOVE this idea…what a great weekly “to do” perpetual calender. You can even write phone number or addresses on your post-it notes and then just peel them off and take them with you when you are going to your appointment! 🙂
