I stewed about it for a while and then had the idea to use it to pretty up my menu area. This is what the area previously looked like.
Functional but not at all pretty. I put the frame up and got a general idea of the inside area of the frame and then taped it off.
I dug out the can of chalkboard paint and got busy.
I used Velcro to attach the frame to the door.
The menu would only take up about half of this space. I then needed to decide how to use the bottom half. I thought about using it for a to do list or for listing shopping items. In the end I decided to write a scripture. I ended up choosing Matthew 4:4. I used a chalkboard marker from Hobby Lobby. An indulgence that I have never regretted!
After seeing how pretty it looked I was on the search for an attractive menu calendar.
If you are interested I got my menu here. It is 8x11 standard if you print it. I saved it and put it into my Hallmark card making program so that I could change it to print landscape.
I love when I am able to take something that might otherwise become trash and make it into something useful. Especially when it becomes beauty! I can't tell you how many times I have opened the cabinet door to peek at this. :)
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
