CHALKBOARD WINDOW FOR LAUNDRY ROOM!

Things you need...

1. A window
2. Chalkboard paint Any Color!
3. Chalk

I got this one by telling my friend about the project and she went and dug it out of her dad's basement for me. Thanks Sarah!


I put it in my Laundry room JUST FOR LOOKS. I do not really go by the chart! I might want to try it sometime it might work!

 It was dark outside that is just a regular window in the middle not another chalkboard ;)

Love it! Before I read the whole post, I was so impressed that you actually did a certain load a day. Whew, I was really gonna think I stink at the whole laundry thing! LOL!

Jenna said...

Love the idea, but a friend of mine tried painting chalkboard on a mirror and it scratched off when she wrote on it... any tips????

I painted this chalkboard paint straight on the glass and its been there for a while now and it is definitley not coming off. maybe try putting primer on it first?:) I have never tried on a mirror. hope this helps.

This turned out great. I'm been itching to use my chalkboard spraypaint on something. Maybe I'll have to dig up an old window too.

I love your window! It is so cute. I hope to come across an old window one day. Seems like there are so many options for repurposing them!

Very sweet! :) I have several old windows I decorate with, but I haven't tried this one yet! One of my windows I've turned into a photo gallery...works beautifully!
Happy Weekend!

Tammy@InStitches said...

Nice ! I've been looking for a window for my laundry room.

Michelle Hoad said...

What a cute idea. Now if I just had a real window in the laundry room, too. Mine is a dark pit that I hate to be in. And with seven kids, I'm always in it.

Lori said...

Thanks for joining Get Your Craft on Thurs. Please join me next week for another great party.

I'm gonna HAVE to do this for our Laundry room! Love it!! When we lived in Missouri a friend of mine would paint old windows like this one and they were OH SO pretty! I love decorated laundry rooms. Our's is sort of small so it wouldn't take much. I'm super excited! =)
