Menu Board

I told ya'll a while back that I was trying to get more organized around the house. I started with making some pre-assembled Freezer Meals. We've tried a couple and they turned out great!
With our food being more organized, I thought it would be nice to know WHAT we were having to eat every day, so I could plan, or get last minute ingredients if we were out of something.
The Menu Board was born.
I searched around Pinterest and found some that I liked, but I decided that a trip to Hobby Lobby would probably inspire me more....and it did!
Here is the finished Menu Board for our kitchen.

To make this sweet little board, I first found a frame that I loved. I lucked up and found this neat cut out frame, mounted to another frame with glass! And it was on sale...score!
I browsed the scrapbook paper aisle to find the perfect pattern for my frame. I loved this subtle script. I thought it would be hard to read writing on it, but you can see black marker very easily. I cut the paper to fit in the frame.
Then I used my handy dandy Silhouette Cameo to make the "Day" labels. I cut out the circles from black vinyl, and cut the letters of the day out of white and stuck them together. Easy. You could also use pre-made stickers too, they just didn't have any in the colors or fonts I liked at the store.
Because the glass is in the frame, use a dry-erase marker to write whatever you want on your board. I didn't put "Menu" on the board, because I also write when it's a school night, or when we're going out somewhere, just to remind me.

I think it turned out great, and I love that I can change the scrapbook paper if I want to match the seasons. I'll try that out in a few months...fall colors maybe?
How have you been organizing your home?
