Menu Chalkboard

I love all the different versions of menu boards I’ve seen around blogland. So when I found this little board at Salvation Army for $0.99 I knew it would be perfect for a little spot in our kitchen.

All it needed was a little sprucing up! I took it apart and primed and painted the frame white and even gave the existing mat a few coats of blue paint.

The existing dry erase board was on a piece of wood so I just sprayed the back side with a few coats of chalkboard paint and added lettering with vinyl cut from my Silhouette machine.

To go with the mat, I cut out a bird from a piece of scrapbook paper and backed it on a square of burlap patterned paper.


Here it is! Now I just need to think of some good things to make for dinner!



Next up in the kitchen? Those cabinets....I'm a little nervous about that DIY project, but I'll post as I go!
