Recycling Old Windows

    So I have been meaning to get a Whiteboard/Dry Erase Board for my 75g Reef for a while now.

    I have been doing a lot of work at my Landlord's house which has included replacing a few of the windows and I got to thinking that some of them would make awesome Dry Erase Boards so I cleaned/painted one up and have turned it into one it works and looks awesome. I would suggest it to anyone who has access to some old windows.

    Here's some pics of the process and it in use

    Great idea, I have seen older windows used for decoration like that, but using it for a writing board with dry erase markers is a new one. Very unique, art and functionality all in one.

    thanks I got the idea from a friend who lets her kids use the dry erase markers to draw on their giant sliding glass patio doors. My next project is turning these two smaller windows into end tables.
