I knew that I wanted a menu board of some kind on my buffet....and I knew that I wanted to make it versus buy it. I've seen a few things here and there, but nothing that was quite right. Then, I had an idea while shopping at Hobby Lobby last week.....a simple wooden tray! I was so excited about it.....my 9 year old didn't think it was all that exciting, but he nods and smiles for me (like any good man should do, right?).
Chalkboard-footed Wineglasses I made for Christmas) to coat the center (two coats with a little dry time between). Afterward, I "roughed up" the edges a bit to give it an aged look and rubbed the entire chalkboard surface with the side of a piece of chalk.
