Looking for a DIY project that is as practical and useful as it is eco-friendly? While cruising the internet, I came across a great way to upcycle paint swatches by the crafty folks at Maple & Magnolia. Since I’ve held onto quite a few paint samples from a variety of home improvement projects, I decided to give this craft a reuse remix and put them to work! Follow this super simple tutorial to give your life some extra colorful organization.

Whether you are a student, professional, stay-at-home mom, self-employed or unemployed, anyone can benefit from better visual organization. Plus, using a reusable, dry-erase calendar made of upcycled materials makes a lot of sense, environmentally speaking, by saving paper resources and money.

I wanted to make sure the bulk of this craft was, in fact, reused. Aside from the paint swatches I already had on-hand, I decided to go with a brown paper take-out bag for the background and use a slightly broken, but useable frame I found at a local thrift store. Like many of my DIY projects, this one is highly customizable to suit your needs, budget, design taste and color preferences.
