This week I'm going to share how I made this Weekly Dinner Menu Board.
Lately I've been trying to be very good about planning out my weekly dinner menu by the sales at my local grocery stores. I've always either written out the menu in notebook or on some sort of printable I've found searching the web. I don't know about you, but I'm so overwhelmed with paper everywhere and no where to store it, display it or organize it. My "desk" is my coffee table in the living room. It does make it hard for me to be organized and productive. I'm working on a solution to that.
So, when I was thinking about what project I could do for this week, it came to me to make a pretty, reusable menu board. One that I could display in the kitchen without having a piece of paper taped to my fridge. (pet peeve of mine, BIG TIME)
My kitchen is mainly blacks, whites and neutral colors so I knew I wanted it to match all that.
Damask is my favorite pattern right now so I took a clip from a picture I had on my computer and created the "Dinner Menu" as a Word Document, then printed it out.
In my travels to Goodwill I found this frame with a tag on it for $4 but it was my lucky day because they had just changed the half price color to red and scored it for only $2.
Next I carefully took the frame apart, it was tricky separating the picture from the mat (it was professionally done) Then I painted the mat black with regular spray paint.
