After being an old country wares collector back in the day when Prim Country was “in”, I had kept a few pieces to give them a new lease on life. That was the case with this old calendar holder. It’s been sitting in the “to do” pile for quite some time waiting patiently for me toΒ do something with it. If you have been following me for a while you know how much I love to repurpose things. This project was no different. Sharing how I repurposed this old calendar holder into a Farmhouse Chalkboard.
