Project of the Non-Knitting Variety

One of the more fun things about having a house is that I can make things to put in it and make it even more functional for *me*. One of the things I’ve wanted to add to the place for a little while now is a chalkboard.IMG_4550

I used an old window that already had the character and the chipping paint (and you see those kitty prints in all the dust?), but also the size was perfect for in-home use.IMG_4719

The only things I had to purchase for this were a can of chalkboard spray paint, some wire to hang it with and that little metal ring used to hold the chalk jar to the bottom – all in all, less than $5 spent on materials. Winning? I think so.IMG_4717
