What A Pane!

Author:  Spring (Jordan)

A few weeks ago we switched out the old and charm-filled windows in our Florida room to energy efficient windows that will be much more practical in our Syracuse winters.  You can read about it here.  I loved the old windows and saved them for some future freebie projects.

Window pane- before

My first window project was really free.  I had some left over chalk board paint which I used to paint on each of the old panes.

Here it is half-way finished.  I did repaint the frame even though I love the worn/weathered look of the old chipped paint.

When I painted all of them, I used my chalk markers to fill in the days of the week.  And there you go.  An instant organizer for our entry.  Now we can see at a glance what is on the agenda for each day of the week.  How fun is that!

    This was such a great idea and came out wonderful. Can you tell me what kind of chalk paint you used? Was it spray or in a can that you have to use a paint brush?

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea!

      I used chalk paint out of a can, then applied with a brush. I am sure chalk spray paint would work as well. Good luck!
