DIY: Transform Old Calendars into Wall Art!
I used to buy a wall calendar at the start of each new year. I loved the photography, the art, and the entire idea of having a different masterpiece for each month of the year. Problem was, when it was time to start a new calendar, I could not bring myself to dispose of the old one. And so year after year, my stock of old calendars piled up, shoved haphazardly in the back of my closet. I felt like such a hypocrite: to refuse to discard them, yet treat them like trash anyway. But I soon forgot about them. That is, until now.
Yesterday, I cleaned my room. Excavated, more like. And out from the deep, dark depths lay my deserted calendar collection. I reminisced about photographs that had been long lost, the ones I had loved so much. And then I had an idea. I could frame them!
So I dug out half a dozen 12″ x 12″ frames that I had bought on sale at Michael’s a while ago and fitted them with six of my favorite calendar photos.
After some careful consideration, I lay them out on my carpet in two rows of three.
I can just imagine them on my wall: a gallery of recycled black-and-white calendar photographs. And even though I will be heading off to college in the Fall, at least I can come home to a room with a wall of framed little piglets.
