Calendar Art: Another Use for An Old Calendar

Calendar Art: Another Use for An Old Calendar

So, I finally got around to opening yet another box that was tucked away at my parent's house. You may recall the last time I opened one of these boxes: it contained Sweet Valley High books that my friend repurposed as artwork for her vanity. This year, I found a 1998 Blue Note calendar with fantastic prints of iconic jazz albums...

...along with the realization that my 10-year high school reunion is coming up. (Gym membership is getting renewed tomorrow...) After waffling a bit on keeping it, I decided why not make see if some of these prints are salvageable? I chucked the ones that were dinged around the corners (or scribbled with, "I hate flute lessons"), got six Ribba frames from IKEA, and a few sheets of mat board to cut custom mats. End result? Not bad for repurposing an old find, and relatively cheap to make (about $150 for the set of six). I'm thinking about hanging them in a hallway in a neat row...
