We had my family over for a cookout this weekend, and I am sooo bummed that I didn't think to take any pictures!!! Even though I don't have any photos to show it, we had a great time, and it was great seeing everyone.
I have a big family, and I made a ton of food for our little shindig. Before my family arrived, I wrote the menu down on a makeshift dry erase board hanging in my kitchen. Some of my nieces and nephews thought that this project was pretty cool, and it ended up being somewhat of a conversation piece in my kitchen.
I really wish I could take the credit for this idea, but I can't. I saw a version of this in blog land several moths ago, and for the life of me, I can't remember which blog I saw it at. Although this piece has been hanging on my kitchen wall for a few months now, I have yet to blog about it, so without further ado, here's another Goodwill Good Deal....
|This is what it looks like hanging on my kitchen wall now.......|
|......but this it what it looked like when I purchased it from Goodwill for only $3.99.|
|This purposeful piece of kitchen wall art was really easy to make. All I did was take out the old portrait, and then I used scrapbook paper and scrapbook stickers to create a new "portrait'.|
|Lastly, I attached a dry erase marker to the side of the frame using Velcro. The dry erase marker works on glass the same way that it would on a regular dry erase board:)|
|And that was it! One $4 Goodwill frame + scrapbooking supplies that I already had = one practical yet beautiful conversation piece in my kitchen:)|
