Goodwill Wooden Perpetual Calendar Repurposed As Farmhouse Style Wall Hymn Board

 I found this wooden, perpetual calendar at a Goodwill shop in the Twin Cities.

Hand painted wood pieces for the months, holidays, and weekdays are in the baggie.

 I removed the top three wood sliders.

The third long slider was warped and the day pieces did not slide in very easily.  My husband straightened it out, and added another nail.

After wiping the calendar down with hot, soapy, Dawn Dish Soap water and a rag, I brushed on a couple of coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Drop Cloth.  I used a sponge brush.

I then lightly distressed the calendar's edges with 100 grit sandpaper.



I found this galvanized metal Cross at Hobby Lobby. I think the Crosses are available in the stores too.

After waxing the calendar with Dixie Belle Best Dang Wax in Clear, the Cross was nailed onto the top, center of the calendar.

I think the dated calendar makes a very decorative farmhouse style, church wall, Hymn board.

I used one digit numbers 1-9, in the baggie, as Hymn numbers. The two digit calendar days had two numbers on each square and didn't work well as Hymn numbers. (I could paint and stencil the two digit numbers as one digit numbers.)

These are a few Bibles from my small Bible Collection.  These, and a few more, are displayed in the old wooden box on the top of my antique china cabinet.

My Hymn board has so much farmhouse style!

I don't hang calendars on the wall anymore.  It seems like the date is on iphone, my laptop and my ipad at all times, and I can google a real calendar if I want look at one or print one.

I like this idea!

  1. Interesting, Carlene. Are the numbers actual hymns in a particular hymnal? Favorites of yours, perhaps? Just wondered.
