We have slowly been replacing windows on our 100 year old home. I saved these two from the scrap pile as I needed a display for my ever growing collection of pendants. I removed the glass, sanded the sides and covered them in 3 coats of chalkboard paint (I had it leftover.) I had my handy Andy cut new wood panels, which I covered in cork and linen and fastened them together with hinges. Total cost $6. Here’s to living simply and being more resourceful. I really like the chalkboard sides… they are going to be fun!
Also I will be participating in a fundraiser at http://www.displayyourheart.com to raise money for tornado victims right here in the US. There are over 140 different crafters participating, I love when art is used for good. It begins Friday June 17 – 29, check out the blog for more details. I’ve been reading The tipping point by Malcom Gladwell, we have a little chance everyday to make a difference. All those little things lead to a dramatic shift.
