Chalkboard Menu Board

28 Feb

While this particular frame won’t work for every household, the idea  for this Chalkboard Menu Board does! You see, my mom has a special system for her household- we used to call her microwave mom growing up cause she hates cooking so if it was microwavable, she usually bought it for dinners. She has a rule in her house, now that her kids are either grown and gone or young adult, that she only has to cook 4 days a week. Fridays are “every man for himself” nights and Saturdays are usually date nights. Sundays are Family meal nights where all of us get together, in which case my dad cooks so it’s my mom’s night off. Therefore, 4 nights a week my mom is in charge! Isn’t that an awesome deal? Haha. 
She took a $5 frame from Target that fits four 4×6 prints, pulled the glass and mat off, and sprayed the slots intended for pictures with chalkboard aerosol paint. Using her silhouette machine, she added some vinyl touches, and when reassembling her menu board she put the glass BEHIND everything so that she could write on the chalkboard but still have a firm solid writing area.
