I am on crafting fire. I just finished the chalkboard calendar made from one of the salvaged four over four pane windows.
If you look closely, you can see where the paint peeled away in the corners, a result of not removing the painter’s tape in between coatings. In order to make the window opaque, it took 5 layers of chalkboard paint, more than I expected.
I was going to leave the frame unfinished wood, but then decided to lightly brush periwinkle blue paint over it, sanding after it dried to create an aged look.
Finally, I affixed the Scrabble tile board to the lower left hand corner which provides a fun and convenient place to hold the chalk. We also are thinking about using cute handmade burlap bags as well as short Ball jars to hold the chalk.
