Menu Planning Board – Upcycled Frame

I’m a Pinterest Addict. But I don’t just pin things, I try really hard to make them, too!

I’ve seen tons of menu planning boards lately. My current menu planning technique is kids screaming, me yanking stuff out of cabinets to pacify them with snacks while I try to throw something edible together out of the random assortment of foods in the house. Yeah, it’s not really the evening routine I want to continue this fall.

So I’m getting organized. The first task was to make this board. Then I can see at a glance what foods we’ll be eating in the coming week AND what stuff I’m going to need to buy at the store.

I used an old frame that I found for a few dollars at Goodwill. The original frame was shiny (chipped) black, so I hit it with some squirts of white spray paint to give it a cleaner, shabby chic look that better coordinates with my home decor.

I cut out the days of the week from Vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo (love my new e-cutter!) and used the cute “Let’s eat Y’all!” design from Ginny Nilson to personalize it for my Texas kitchen. I applied the vinyl to the outside of the glass, so that I could easily switch out the Designer Series Papers as my mood or decor changes. To make it even easier to change out the papers, I just taped them down on the inside of the frame with painter’s tape. It’ll come off easily and I’ll be able to reuse my rectangles for another purpose, if I want.

I used velcro to attach the dry erase marker to the side of the frame so that it’s always handy.

I hope you liked my menu board idea. It’s a simple way to get organized, without costing a lot of money!
