Decorating can be overwhelming for some people since they do not know what to add in small spaces. One suggestion for small space problem is to add a menu board especially in your kitchen. It is very useful as a planner or schedule or maybe a recipe for your dish.
- Paper-based Menu Board
The first menu board to make is using paper as the media to write. You need reclaimed wood, marker, cards, wood glue, paper clips, measuring tape, paint, saw, sander, nails, and hammer. Firstly, prepare the materials and tools before starting this tutorial. Then, measure the space that you want to use to hang this menu board. Measure the wood the same as the previous measurement.
Cut the wood based on the measurement and smooth the edge using sander. Paint the wood with base color and write the title and the days on the wood. Glue the paper clips on the wood, or you can secure it with nails. Clip the cards paper clips and the menu board is ready to use.
- Chalk-based Menu Board
The second menu board to make is based on the chalk as a media to write. The materials and tools are more or less the same with the previous menu board, such as reclaimed wood, saw, sander, white permanent marker, measuring tape, black paint, rope, nails, and hammer. Firstly, you need to prepare the materials and tools before starting this tutorial. Then, measure the wood and the space you want to place this menu board.
Saw the wood based on the measurement and use sander to smooth the edge. Paint the wood with black paint and write the title and days on it. Make two holes on the top and bring the rope through those holes. Then, hang the menu board on the wall using nail and hammer.
- Pallet Menu Board
The last menu board to make is pallet menu board and you can use chalk to write on it. You can repurpose your old wood pallet to make this menu board. The steps are mostly the same with the chalk-based menu board. Paint the pallet in black color, and since it has lines you can write the days on each line. In displaying this menu board, you can choose to hang it like the second menu board, or you can choose to lay it as the first menu board.
