Chalkboard Project

A while ago I decided I wanted a small chalkboard to hang in my kitchen. Unfortunately, I also decided that I didn't want to spend any money for one. :)

So I thought I'd make one out of an old window. I found one along the side of the road for free...

I painted the trim white and sprayed chalkboard paint onto the glass. I also added some hooks on the bottom to hang an apron or two. Here's what it looks like...


  1. What a great find!
    I did the same thing this week with an 11x14 picture frame. I took out the glass and sprayed it with a can of chalkboard paint, painted the frame creamy white and when finished sat it on an easel on my kitchen counter. Mine says "Le Menu" and lists the evenings dinner!

  2. Oh my goodness, Aimee! Your ideas are terrific! Where do you get them from?? God's blessed you with a wonderful creative talent!

  3. What an elegant chalkboard!! It looks so good against the red wall!

    Hope you are doing okay...I've been thinking about you.


  4. Get out!! You found that on the road side! I never would have thought to spray right onto glass. Nice work.

  5. What a great idea! It looks very nice on your red wall. I love it that you found it on the side of the road, you gave it a good home!

  6. Aimee, you are so clever! It turned out so cute!

    Glad to see you doing some projects, that always lifts my spirits! Hope you are well,


  7. Amazing! Great work. Amazing. It just blows my mind!

  8. My dear Aimee,

    Where are you??? I need something to read from you each morning with my cup of coffee! :)

  9. LOVE your idea for the window frame! I've always wanted to try out chalkboard paint. Is it difficult to use?

    Please stop by my blog where you will see my window frame re-purposed into a pink chenille message board! Hope to hear from you!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments! ~Aimee
