I bought an old window at Goodwill several months ago, and had been cleaning it up and deciding what to do with it for awhile. I decided to chalkboard paint one of the panes, and hang it in my kitchen to write our weekly menu on (making a weekly menu, and following through with cooking is one of my goals to accomplish before the end of the year). I used Rust-Oleum brand chalkboard paint that I bought at Home Depot. It took about 4 coats, but I was cool with that…because the end product is totally worth it.
I haven’t decided what I want to do with the other pane yet…I’m considering a decal of some kind, or putting some kitcheny fabric/scrapbook paper behind it with some pictures. Not sure yet, but I do know that I want to be able to change it…so nothing too permanent. Anyway, without further ado, here’s a pic of my pretty new menu window.
p.s. don’t mind my photog skills (or lack of)…like my reflection in the window?
p.s.s. I am coming along very nicely with my goals, if you were interested…we are now into week 2 of meal planning, and it is working out wonderfully (I use the kraftfoods website…it rocks). I also have done a little closet cleaning out/reorganization.
