New calendar

This used to be how our family kept track of all the things that we had going on in the month or week but after my window project I didn't have a big frame anymore and didn't feel like spending money on a new one so I had to come up with a cheap yet great alternative:)

Here's what I came up with, I had a bunch of frames from a previous decorating project that I wasn't using anymore so I painted them green and distressed them. I used vinyl for the lettering and turned the two smaller frames into windows.
For the calender I stuck the grid and the days of the week on the paper inside the frame so that I could easily change the month that's on the front of the glass. I also got a bunch of old broken bits of pallets from a wood factory in our village and I used a stencil to write 'The good life ' on one of the pieces I got, there's also a little bumble bee on the sign but it's a bit hard to see.

I had a nice picture of Rothenburg in Germany that we bought last time we visited the city and thought I'd make another 'window' and put the picture in the frame.
I couldn't get a shot of the whole thing because it's in a very narrow hallway that also never gets any light but it's right next to our front door so we can't miss it:)
