As a Florida Citrus Grower and busy parent of three, our family has to keep track of everyone’s schedule, including our own, so nothing falls through the cracks. Having a personal family calendar helps us keep track of things each month, so our family stays organized.

What you’ll need:

  • Mirror with frame
  • Chalkboard spray paint
  • Chalkboard pens
  • Ruler
  • Chalk pieces


  1. Spray chalkboard paint over the interior of mirror.
  2. Use chalkboard pens to permanently draw the squares for your calendar.
  3. Use chalk pieces to include a month and begin adding your family’s schedule.

Helpful Tip:

  • Use painter’s tape to protect the frame from accidental chalkboard paint splatter.
  • Paint each calendar in a colorful way to customize for your family.
