Repurposing a Junk Window. Part Two.

For my second window project, I followed all the initial steps as the jewelry organizer, except I left the glass attached this time.  You can read that post here.

I wanted to try something a little different and attempt to make a memo board.  Lately, I have been super obsessed with chalkboard paint, so why not continue?  I also used cork board {which I spray painted and cut to size}, some decorative jute ribbon, and a package of push pins. 

I painted the chalkboard paint directly onto the window panes....three coats.  If you use chalkboard paint, be sure to let the paint completely dry between coats.  I learned the hard way!

I added a few spare buttons in the corners to cover the ends of the jute ribbon.  {who says buttons have to be used for clothes??}

Here is the finished result:

This one is a gift for someone special, but I will definitely be making another one for myself!

Well, that's all for today.  The rainy morning is over so now it's back to work. Thanks for stopping by!
