Calendar Makeover

About 10 years ago my mom gave each of us girls a wooden calendar for Christmas.  It is such a fun decoration and so easy to change the dates each month.  I have loved having this decoration in my house.  However, it was in need of a makeover.  Here is a picture of what it looked like before the makeover.

My husband helped me out and we started by spray painting the whole thing using Rust-Oleum American Accents in Espresso.  It was a smooth Satin Finish.  Then I sanded everything.  We then applied the vinyl numbers, months, and pictures.  I ordered the vinyl from a friend who has her own vinyl business.  It is called Heartfelt Wall Hangings.  I finished it off by attaching a new family picture and stamping Family at the top and a quote by Helen Keller that says:  "The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart."  Anyway, here is the after picture.

I love how this turned out.  I can't help looking at it all the time.  I am excited to do some other projects.  Right now I am in the process of organizing all my stamping stuff but hopefully soon I will have something else to post.  I will post pictures of my organizing when I am finished.
