I really wanted to create a cute and functional command station in our office walk in closet. I liked the idea of being able to shut the door and hide the mess.
The main component to my command station for me was having a large calendar to keep any upcoming events, birthday, etc displayed. I knew I wanted something a smidge cuter than your average dry erase board …. So an acrylic calendar it was!
I took to the internet and immediately realized just how expensive these could be. Crate and Barrel had one for $80 and believe me , it was nothing special.
So as always the “I can make that” voice in my head sounded off. Here’s how I DIY’ed this for under $25.
- 18x24 Acrylic sheet from Lowe’s
- Family calendar vinyl SVG if you have a Cricut simply order a vinyl sticker from Etsy
- Sign standoffs from Amazon - be sure you get the correct size you’d like. I went with the ones linked.
- Drill and drill bit sized for the standoffs. You will also want a Phillips bit for the installation of the standoffs.
