What's for dinner?!

Yes, I get asked that question every single day. In the morning, at school pickups, and then again (especially if they are hoping the answer will change).

The January 2013 Whimseybox came with 3 6" by 5" balsa pieces, 2 rolls of washi tape, a clamshell plastic box, and some bright rubber bands.

For this project, I painted one side of the entire board with chalkboard paint I had leftover from another project. I used 3 coats, separated by about 10 minutes drying time in the sun, and then let it dry for over 24 hours.

I then simply added a washi border. I stuck it to the wall using that white plasticy tack-n-stick. There may be a better choice, but I had this so we'll see.

This board is small for a menu board, but then so is my wall. That light switch is centered on the wall. There is not much wall space in my kitchen, and this light switch gets more action than any other in the house—the perfect place for a message board!

The other 2 balsa boards from the box? I have a little project in progress, but can't find the beads I want. Looking for another solution there....
