How-to: DIY Weekly Menu Board
Close up of my menu board (L) and hanging in my kitchen (R)
Have you seen those fancy shmancy menu boards that you can buy for oodles of money? But they are about the size of a piece of paper? Well I say… Who needs to spend oodles when you can do it yourself!
My favorite foodie and all around bestie, Nikki (Yes, she pays me to say that. HAHA), showed me a DIY weekly menu project a couple months ago and I loved the idea! All you need is a dry erase board and vinyl lettering. Easy peasy, right?
I bought my dry erase board at Target. Mine is about 22 inches x 35 inches. Its HUGE!
For my vinyl lettering, I contacted Mandi of Stikm’up Vinyl Lettering and she was so patient with me while I was choosing my font, size and color. I finally decided to go with classic black b/c I figured all my dry erase markers will provide the color and the font reminds me of old world historical handwriting. (Remember T is a history buff so I dig it b/c it reminds me of him.) Finally T doesn’t have to ask me a bazillion times “Whats for dinner?” (You think my memory is bad? His is worse!) Now I can just point to the board. Niiiiiiiiiiice.
Don’t you love it?
I absolutely LOVE how it turned out.
I can’t stop staring at it.
Looks like I need to figure out something for Sunday dinner though huh? HAHA
If you wanna make your own weekly menu, email Mandi and tell her Clara said hi!
PS. You know…? My blogoversary *IS* coming up and maybe if there’s enough reader interest I can
finagle convince Mandi to sponsor my blogoversary with a “weekly menu board kit”? So… who’s interested? *wink*
PPS. Twilight was awesome.
PPPS. You should go see it this weekend.
PPPPS. Because I said so. <– greatest comeback ever.
