Window Weekly Calendar Chalkboard

I know it's been done... but here is an easy way
to transform an old window into a useful chalkboard.

How to make a window chalkboard Calendar

My chalkboard is different than most because I used
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Graphite as the chalkboard paint.

I painted directly on the windows.

When about 3 coats dried I stenciled letters for the days of the week in the corner of each window.

For the chalk holder I used a small bread pan that I painted then cut lengthwise in half. 

By the way, I love my Rockwell Bladerunner saw. (affiliate link)  It does everything I need it to and is not a big scary saw!

I used E6000 and a bracket to attach the tin to the bottom of the window.

I used clamps to apply pressure until the glue dried.

An old window chain is attached to the top of the window 
to hang the calendar.
