DIY: Vintage-Framed Chalkboard Menu

9-26 DIY Chalkboard Menu.jpg

Yesterday I made the mistake of going to Michael's craft store without a list or project in mind. Whereas normally I would go crazy swooping up everything in sight, this time I just couldn't seem to find anything I needed or wanted. That is, until I stumbled into some chalkboard paper. I nearly jumped for joy after learning about it's existence and the projects immediately started flooding my mind. 

First up, is this vintage-framed chalkboard menu, which I would also like to coin as the easiest DIY ever. All you need is some chalkboard paper ($1.99 for a 12 X 12 in. sheet), the frame of your choice, some scissors and chalk. The steps are pretty self-explanatory from there, but I do have one other secret tool that may come in handy. In order to get the fine lines and detail, I used a white charcoal pencil. It works just about the same as chalk and the end results are beautiful.
