This chalkboard wall calendar is a great example of how to have fun while staying productive, focused, and motivated.
Marthastewart.com has easy to follow illustrated instructions and videos on how to create your own chalkboard wall calendar. Simple purchase some chalkboard paint from your local Lowes or Home Depot, mask off a section with tape, and mix different amounts of white in to get a nicely designed checker pattern. Once everything is dry, you can write with fun colored chalk, and plan out your entire month.
Another fun alternative to this project would be to include a layer of magnetic paint behind the chalk so that you can stick magnets to the wall.
