Three houses ago…my husband and I had a 1937 bungalow. When we had the windows replaced I saved a few. For what? I wasn’t sure at the time, but I knew I could come up with uses for them.
I decided this one would make a perfect kitchen nook chalkboard. I busted out the trusty chalkboard spray paint and got to work. Yup, sprayed it right on to the glass of the window! Then I discovered Chalk Ink!
These markers write on a multitude of surfaces and wipe off with a little water – just like chalk!
I used it on some glass containers I had for coffee, nuts and grains.
I love all the fun colors and how easy they are to clean up.
Happy creating! What are you working on this Wednesday?

ADORE! I just love this! Where did you find those chalk markers??
ooh, I will have to find myself some chalk ink. I'd love to label things with them! How fun. Thanks for sharing. Love the idea to simply paint the glass with the chalkboard stuff!
Great find! Love your project. Thank you for linking to Handy Man, Crafty Woman Wicked Awesome Wednesday!
I found the Chalk Ink markers at my local Michael's. $11.99 for a 4 pack, but totally worth it.
Very cute. Now I want to look for an old window.
Fabulous idea … clearly, you were thinking ahead when you saved a few of the chippy windows !! Love the red … and, I'm a huge fan of chalk ink … use them for my chalkboards, as well !! *Becca* (newest follower by way of SSS)
