What’s for dinner?!

Hello again friends and HAPPY FRIDAY!!

I’ve been super duper busy lately with work and two puppies and spending as much time as I possibly can with my husband before he deploys soon….but with that said, I have a really easy one for ya this week! A DIY kitchen menu – check it out:

This is NOT a good picture by any means, this looks like the typed words are dull, but I assure you it looks great in person! 🙂
VERY EASY STEPS:
1. Basically, Grab an old picture frame (or a new one if you’d like) and spray paint it a cool funky color. I had these in my garage from a previous project so I just used this color:

 I had to prime it first since my frame was so dark and the blue color was kind of light. I used a few light coats.
2. Let it dry while you work something up in Microsoft Word like this:

3. I had some fancy scrapbook paper in my craft room already (got this one at Hobby Lobby) – just place a regular sheet of printer paper on top of it and cut out the scrapbook paper to fit the frame size (mine was an 8×10 so it was easy).

4. Print out your Word document on your fancy paper. If you only have one sheet of paper you may want to practice on a plain white sheet first to test it out and make sure everything is aligned right for your frame. {I just can’t seem to get a good picture of mine, the ink looks really dull here but it doesn’t look this way in person (I’m not a photographer that’s for sure)}
5. I decided to sand down the edges of my frame once it was dried. You know me, I love that worn down look. 🙂 You can skip this step if you’d like and also you may want to add some flowers/glitter/bows to your frame with some hot glue, I decided to keep this one simple so all of my projects don’t look the same. ;P

Once your frame is ready, place your Word document inside just like you would a picture and write on the glass with a dry erase marker. And there you have it, your weekly menu.  TA-DA that is all!! 🙂
