Now my son can check our new "Dinner" board when he comes home from school instead of it being the first question he asks me. The debate was chalkboard or dry erase since there have been so many great examples of each. But I finally decided last week when Erin at Crafts & Sutch did a cute dry erase message board ( so cute that it was picked as a favorite thing this week at All Thingz Related ) that dry erase was the winner.
Started w/ a $.01 frame from one of Aaron Bros $.01 sales (they're a national chain and a couple of times a year the have a sale where you buy one frame for reg price and get another one for $.01 so who knows if this frame was the $.01 or the full price one but I digress):
It was too shiny and I wanted to tone it down so I painted it with a taupe acrylic and then dry brushed it with black. I used the cardboard backing that came in the frame to make the main part, covering it w/ scrapbook paper and an acetate border I got at a sidewalk sale at one of my favorite haunts. They were on sale for $.10 each so of course I bought 10 of them. They were a dime! How could I buy just one? :
Here's the whole thing (together with Tuesday's dinner plans ... if you can't read my handwriting, it's chicken skewers, broccoli, pasta) :
I'm not much of a week at a time meal planner....more of a this is what's for dinner TONIGHT kind of planner so you won't see a M,T,W etc. board here lol.
