In our home, one of the most frequently asked questions is,
“What’s for dinner”?
I repeat the answer more often than I would like to. Seems one child asks, and then a few minutes later, here comes the other one with the same question! J
So I thought why not create a menu board. I had an empty antique frame that belonged to my Grandmother that I was not using. It is a very pretty frame and I had been looking for a use for it. And one day I thought that it would be perfect to make a chalkboard out of and use it to write down daily menus!
I traced the outline of the frame on a piece of thin fiberboard, and then cut it out. Then I painted it with chalkboard spray paint. After the paint dried, I put the board in the frame and hung it on the wall. Now I have a unique chalkboard in the kitchen to write menus on. I have also used it to mark holidays and welcome guests! You could also use corkboard in place of a chalkboard if you prefer.
I apologize I didn’t get any pictures of this creative process. I guess I was just too excited!
Anyway, it has helped let everyone know what is on the menu for that day. The cost was quite minimal, and the sentimental value is priceless.
