A couple months ago I sold my old magnet board that wasn't fitting in with my style anymore and I wanted to have a cork board and dry erase board anyway, so it had to go.
Since then I have been trying to come up with ways to use what I have to replace it. I came across a blog a few weeks ago that had the idea to take a three paned window and turn it into a memo board- I wish I could find that blog again but I haven't been able to.
It just so happens that I have some old antique windows with three panes! So I gathered up my supplies and went to work- I got a yard of fabric, some cork board, push pins, and ribbon. The total for all of those supplies was around $15.00. The rest of the supplies I already had on hand.
Here is the window:
I cut out one of the glass panes that was broken and removed the caulk:
Be careful with your razor blade... :/
This is the fabric that I chose. I'm a sucker for Damask patterns...
And here we are all finished. I didn't show you the step-by-step method of how I did everything because well, it just wasn't the best way to go about it. ;)
I love the hardware and the chippy paint!

This is the cork board section:
This is a glass window that is original, I left it in and put fabric behind it so you could see the dry erase marker:
This is what it looked like before:
This is now:
I love it!
