Since we’ve moved in, we’ve recently come across some old windows. We, of course, didn’t see the point in throwing them away, and really wanted to do something nice with them! My soon to be sister-in-law offered us this awesome spray paint that can basically turn any surface into a chalkboard! So we figured, why not use it on this old window!? These simple steps can help you create your own stylized chalkboard for whatever need you may have for it.

What you’re gonna need:
When doing this craft, please make sure that it is completed outside, since it may get messy with the spray paint. Lay the window on a flat surface and completely cover all unwanted painted areas with the painter’s tape.
Once the tape is covering all the desired areas, it’s time to paint! Evenly spray over the glass until you’ve gotten all the desired areas. Once it dries, you may notice areas that were not completely covered, and that’s okay! Simply add another coat of paint. Just be sure to let it dry on the flat surface; You don’t want the paint to run down or form any bubbles!
Before you hang this nifty chalkboard, feel free to add some decorations to the border. We decided to add a couple of rustic stars to the corners of ours and hung some chalk to it with hemp, since it is the style of the room it will be hanging in. Seriously, have fun with it, because it really is an adorable craft that can used for any manner (even a meal planner) and be put in any part of the house!
