The Window Pane Project

About 6 months ago, I bought a salvaged window pane from the ReStore.  It was $15, I think?

I thought it was really cute, but I had not idea what to do with it, until I went to The Craft Warehouse.  There were two aisles devoted entirely to making your own organization boards.  Peel and stick chalkboard and dry erase paper, calendar inserts, recipe and menu planning, magnet boards, cork/magnet board combos… I was overwhelmed with choice.  Decided to get two chalkboard pages, two metal strips for magnets, and make my own calendar.

There are 6 panels on the window, so I was going to use the actual window panes for dry erase markering.  I cut out the exact shape of the pane in the chalkboard paper and stuck it right on.  I glued the metal strips directly to the window.  I made a blank 5 week calendar and taped it on the back of the window panel, this way I can write directly on the window and erase or change easily.  I found random hooks in my toolbox and screwed them to the bottom of the frame.  I also had to install the wire hanger, which was also in my toolbox, but you can get at Home Depot.  Done-zo!
