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……….
