Old window chalkboard

My husband's friend has spent the last year helping his parents re-do a dilapidated old house. My DH has talked about how I can take something destined for the trash pile and turn it into something cool so he gave us a big stack of old windows that had come out of the house.

I had my DH pressure wash all the windows then I gave them a good sanding after I removed the glass. Instead of spraypainting the glass with chalkboard paint, I spraypainted some brown hardboard. It takes a couple of coats to get a nice finish, but I really like the results.

I love it! And, I love when a pile of goodies just fall into your lap because someone knows that you love that stuff :)
