Poofy Cheeks: Goodwill Frame Transformation - Dry Erase Menu

Goodwill Frame Transformation - Dry Erase Menu

I woke up on Saturday morning feeling pretty thrifty. Since Mike was at work, the boys and I headed to Goodwill. I walked out spending $11. I got everything pictured below plus a child’s suitcase that Wyatt just couldn’t live without. (Did I mention that he wants to take it everywhere we go, filled with Thomas toys, and makes me put it in the trunk? LOL!)

Now I have seen some really cool dinner menu’s for planning out each week’s meal. I instantly knew I wanted to do something like that with the frame.

I took out the picture and glass then spray painted the frame on my ‘spray painting tree’. As you can tell I have used it a time or two before!

Then I created grid with the days of the week on my computer and printed it onto solid turquoise/blue cardstock. I used a lighter color to print out ‘Sapp Family Menu’. Then I put the glass back into the frame and arranged the papers and a piece of ribbon - using tape to secure them.

I then placed the back onto the frame and turned it around to find this…

I consider this one successful transformation! Now I can use my chalk markers on the glass and wipe it clean each week. I’m linking up over at Craft-o-Maniac, These Creative Juices, A Diamond in the Stuff and I Love Naptime!

BTW – Here is my menu for this week!
  • Monday – Baked Potato Soup
  • Tuesday – Steak with broccoli salad
  • Wednesday – Peas and Cheese Tortellini
  • Thursday – Fiesta Chicken Chowder
  • Friday – FFY (Fend For Yourself (cause this momma has to work!!))
  • Saturday – Honey Goat Cheese Chicken by Paula Deen
  • Sunday – SUPER BOWL!
Come back tomorrow to see how I used some other goodwill finds and Target dollar spot items to create a Valentine’s entryway!

  1. Okay, I have been scouring the internet for menu board ideas that are cute & not messy and I love this one! What computer program did you use for creating it? I am almost 100% 'computer challenged' so I also have to ask if it was easy to create. Although I still might need the husband's help with that. (My lack of computer skills is slightly embarrassing! :) ) I love the look of all the cool chalkboard ones I've found but I cannot stand how chalk makes my hands feel, so this is perfect! And I also happen to have several cans of spray paint to choose from as well!
