Vintage Window Dry Erase Board

I’ve had this vintage window for at least two years. I picked it up at our local community “Trades Days” from a favorite vendor. It has been all over my house…sometimes on display and others tucked away in storage collecting dust. The other day I saw a BRILLIANT idea for using old windows! HOLY MOLY! It’s perfecto!!

Step 1:
I glued tissue paper to the back side of the window. You could also use fabric. Make sure that it is light so that reading your scribbles is easy!!
Step 2:
Next I added some ribbon to trim out the writing area. I used hot glue to attach the ribbon.

Step 3:
I had a few small tin cans that I saved for projects. I wrapped ribbon around the can to jazz it up a bit. Then I tried to hammer the darn thing to the window, but that was WAY TOO frustrating. I busted out the hot glue and slapped that bad boy on!

I am totally loving this little doo-dah.

That is so smart! Love how easy it is to modify to match one's decor. And no messy chalk. Cool.
