This DIY Vintage Window Chalkboard is the perfect way to repurpose an old window. It's easy to make your own chalkboard with a little chalkboard paint and this piece of DIY wall art has so many possibilities! Use it to plan meals or grocery lists in the kitchen or hang it in your entryway as a way to keep track of which family member is going where on which day. It also looks gorgeous on the wall without any chalk on it at all - the black chalkboard paint pops against a vintage window frame, making it the easiest DIY wall art you'll ever make!

This chalkboard paint project is really great. Might be nice to have a place against the frame to hold the chalk and chalk eraser. Chalkboard paint seems to have so many trendy uses today. I never thought to use it on glass panels. I have found that this type of paint does require many coats to be effective.

This is a really cute project and very trendy right now for the farmhouse look. I have also seen these windows used for mirrors and photographs. The chalk board idea would be great for making notes or menus or fun messages or keeping track of schedules for different members of the family.

I have a large blank wall above my work desk in my craft room. I make and sell both jewelry and crochet items and I think this would be perfect on that space. I can make notes, put due dates, ideas for creations or which supplies I need to order. Being a chalk board, it's easy to erase and I won't have little paper notes all over. A tree thanks you for this idea.
