I’ve had this old window in my garage for almost a year but I haven’t been able to decide what to do with it. When it came time to makeover my front porch I really wanted to fill up the large, empty wall to the left of the door and I immediately thought of the old window! I thought, how fun would it be to have a place where people that stopped by could leave us notes. It would also be the perfect place for me to leave notes for people, like the UPS man, etc. I know just about everyone, and their mother, has made a DIY chalkboard before but this is a tutorial of my take on making a chalkboard.
First I laid the window on my lawn to clean it. I wiped it down with a damp rag and then rubbed off the extra caulking.
Then I used Frog Tape and paper from the recycle bin, to prep the window for painting.
After I taped it off I used Rustoleum’s Chalkboard paint and sprayed the window with two coats.
After the paint was dry I added two hooks on the back to make for easy hanging.
And here’s my chalkboard hanging on our front porch. I love it!
Chalk for guests to write notes… check!
The best part is that I can write anything I want on it! If you happen to be in the area stop by and leave me a note!
I can’t wait to show you the whole front porch makeover! Stop by on Wednesday to check it out!!!
