At first we had some pictures here but I've seen grown tired of them. I just didn't think it filled the wall enough, plus my husband and I both make plans for our family... which leads to double booking. So I've been thinking we need a central Command Center to organize the family plans and keep everything together.

In our old place we had this
|target find, I believe|
The cork board in the middle was used but mostly to put things that we didn't really want to throw away.... not entirely useful. I think a calendar would be WAY more useful!
Time for a MAKEOVER!!!
All three parts are separate so I flipped over the cork board and started unscrewing the back..
|easy to pop these out|
I wasn't sure what I'd find under there but it was just this odd material...
I have this Chalkboard Contact paper (I used it on my New Years Mantel). I just LOVE this stuff!!! I'm sure you'll see many more posts using it!
So I measured where to cut...
Cut it down to size and apply to the cork board. I didn't do anything to the cork board, I just covered it up.

After the cork board was covered I did a little test on some scrap chalkboard paper and found that once you "season" the chalkboard, chalk erases easier. Since this is going to be a calendar I knew I'd be erasing often so I made sure to season it.
