Calendar make over

Xavi and me attended a Home Depot workshop  back in January of this year where we made a wooden calendar and Sophia helped us the painting.  The originals stickers were somehow lost and I ended up writing the numbers and the months with a sharpie!  Day after day I regretted very much the fact that the stickers were lost. It was a project that I liked but not really loved because of my writing... Sophia did a great job painting it.  So I decided to give it half a makeover.

This is the way it looked.  Good but not great!

 I gave it a coat of primer!  I'm very particular about doing things so this part I did it myself!

Then my helper gave it some color!  This was the fun part so I let him do it!

Here is the color! 

Then some fun stickers which I had forever and then realized that I could have done this since day one but I never really thought about it until now! duh!!  (Since Sophia was busy at club penguin  and really didn't care much about helping on this project I put the stickers myself)

This is the end result!  Now I really love it!  What day is today??
