Old Window/Chalkboard Calendar

Old Window/Chalkboard Calendar

What does one do with a window that’s been lying around for years?


One turns it into a chalkboard calendar for their office, of course! :)


I was rummaging around my house for different wall “art” for my new office space.  Something functional yet “chic” enough for a guest room.

Well, as “chic” as a chalkboard calendar can be, I guess!


This was so super easy to do!

Get some chalkboard paint and cheap foam brushes.


Paint the window panes.  It took me three coats to feel like I had good coverage.

Season your ‘panes’ with chalk and embellish how you wish!  I labeled each pane with a day of the week but you could do anything you want! :)

I screwed in two eye hooks at the bottom of the window.  One holds chalk, the other, an embroidered towel which is held by a curtain rod ring!



It’s perfect for keeping me organized as well as pleasant to look at!


I love the way it ties in with my chalkboard storage bins I found on clearance at Home Goods for $2.99 each!!


So, if you have an old window pane lying around,  turn it into a functional piece of art!


Until next time……….
