Window Frame Blackboard


(2 Votes)


Use an old picture frame to create an organization or inspiration board with three different elements: a blackboard, a chicken wire section for hanging and a magnet board. Project designed by MaryJane Butters.

Window Frame Blackboard


  • old window
  • chicken wire
  • chalkboard paint
  • paintbrush
  • plywood
  • glazing points
  • wire cutter


  1. Remove glass from window. Cut plywood, wire, and metal roofing or galvanized sheet metal to fit in desired windowpanes.
  2. Apply chalkboard paint to wood, let dry. Attach wood and metal to window frame from the back using glazing points.
  3. Attach wire to frame using small fencing staples. Attach one fencing staple 2" in from each edge and tie twine between for hanger.

Love it!!! This is really cute. Thanks for sharing.

I would love to have this in my kitchen and even have another one on my patio. The perfect shabby chic bulletin board. Way to go, I'm going to try to put one of these together this week-end. Thank you!

Love this. I have an old window frame that I've been holding onto for a project & I definitely think I have found this. I love the chicken wire.
