I love frames. I especially love it if I can re-purpose a frame to make a fun little accent piece in a very unexpected way. I was blog perusing one day a couple of months ago and I saw a cute idea for a menu plate for a kitchen that was made out of an old metal plate and some chalkboard paint.
I don’t remember which blog.
If I remember correctly, I even commented to the blogger about how cute this was. I still can’t remember the name of the blog.
So I was in Goodwill the other day and I saw this cute frame:
When spray painting with chalkboard paint, you really need about 3-4 coats before it works with the chalk.
Add some chalk and you have a mini-menu board.
I wish I had prettier handwriting.
Next time I will let my 6th grader write the menu.
Cost breakdown time:
-Frame– 99 cents at Goodwill.
-Chalkboard Paint– (already had but it will cost you five bucks at Home Depot or Lowes)
-Chalk– (again, already had but will cost you a dollar at Dollar Tree)
Total cost for me– 99 cents!!
Total cost if you had none of these items– $ 6.99!!
