See how I turned this outdated mirror into a chalkboard menu for our kitchen!
Picked up this mirror for only $5! It was the perfect size for a kitchen menu sign!
I removed the mirror from the frame and painted it with chalkboard paint. I used three coats, letting it dry for one hour in between each coat. I then let it dry for two days.
I painted my frame with this Rust-Oleum Chalked spray paint in the color Serenity Blue.
After the frame and chalkboard dried for a couple of days, I primed the chalkboard by rubbing it with the edge of a piece of chalk. This step is critical. Once I secured the chalkboard back into the frame, I added my vinyl letters. It says "This Week's Menu" and along the left side, I added abbreviated days of the week.
Here is our new menu board for our kitchen! I used a chalk marker to add our menu for the week and placed it in our dining room next to our vintage tea cart!
I am going to enjoy changing this each week and enjoy it being a part of our farmhouse decor! What do you think? Let us know in the comments here or on our blog! We hope you will subscribe to our newsletter!
