Dry Erase Menu Board

Young House Love and Bower Power have issued a Pinterest Challenge Winter Edition.  Just the kick in the butt I needed to get some projects on my Project Ideas board done.


We needed a menu board for the kitchen.  Hubby is always asking what's for dinner.  I have it written on my notepad, but I guess it didn't do him any good there.  I pinned this a while back knowing I'd get back to it one day.  Well today is the day.

Is started by printing a chevron background on regular printer paper from here.  Using Word and the font Britannic Bold, I typed a template with menu at the top and my day of the week letters down the side.  I stuck the chevron paper back in the printer and printed the template on top.

Using white paper, I cut rectangles to write the menu items on and taped them down on top.

Put it back in the frame and voila.

  1. love it, my husband is also always asking! I pinned your project myself:)

  2. Thanks for sharing this....followed your link from YHL. I am already starting to do mine. Going to choose between misty gray and apple green -- decisions. Will print them both out and see what I like best. What font did you use in Word? Love your adding in the white paper strips too. Thanks again!!!

  3. Great idea! I really love the chevron background.

  4. Looks great! I like the chevron background. I made a dry erase menu board a few months ago and it's been so helpful!

  5. Nice design! Thanks for sharing at Things I've Done Thursday.

  6. I love this, and I probably have all the "ingredients" on hand and could make it, too! That's my favorite kind of project-- simple, beautiful, and functional. Great job, and thanks for linking up with the Winter Pinterest Challenge!
