Great idea for unused windows

We recently opened our architectural salvage store (Spartanburg Architectural Salvage, or SAS) and used some old windows to help advertise it.

How, you ask?

First, we cleaned the windows of the usual grime and such. Then, intern Patrick painted the windows with black chalkboard paint (note this was done in the well ventilated area of the Trust front porch, atop newspaper).
The chalkboard paint takes a mere hour or two to dry and voila... instant blank canvas for chalkin' it up!
We have since painted a few more windows to use in the SAS store to display prices and general information. As seen below, we used a painted window to announce our Kudzu Cleanup Project at the kickoff event on June 19th.

SAS has many windows of various shapes and sizes that are available for reuse in a home restoration project or art project.
