Pinterest Challenge- Spring 2013 Edition

I missed the Fall and Winter Pinterest Challenge by just a few days, that is what happens when you are running after two kiddos and don't have time to read a million blogs (I try, but sometimes they slip though the cracks). I am back to participate in the spring edition put on by Young House Love . You can see my other posts here and here and here.

Like the last project, this was also a for my friend who got married last summer. This was her second wedding gift to go along with the map hearts from the last challenge. Sorry these were so spread apart!


Inspiration photo was found on Pinterest of course and I used it as inspiration for a menu board for them. You can find the original link to the menu board Here. I had some extra burlap and thought this would be fun for their kitchen.
I started out with this picture which could have been hung like this in a bathroom or closet? I liked the shape and frame and that is why I picked to use it for the menu board. I took it apart and put burlap in the frame. She was using a lot of burlap and lace in her wedding decor so I thought this would only be fitting.

Instead of using vinyl for the wording I thought that screen printing the burlap would be longer lasting and bolder. So I printed that right onto the burlap with black ink.
I decided that instead of putting the days of the week I would just leave the bottom part blank this way not only can they use a dry erase marker to put the weekly menu they could also use it for a party and put the party menu or even just tape up a printed calendar of the week or month's meals.


And....here is what I came up with.
I like how it turned out, there is something about a square frame that looks modern and I hope will be a great addition to their kitchen. They did use it on the day of their wedding at the head of the buffet line to let everyone know what was being served for dinner. I wasn't even thinking of telling her to use it but she did! Smart girl.

Check out the other women who put this challenge on, Katie, Sherry, Emily, and Renee. Also go Here to check out other bloggers like me who took the challenge. Had a blast and can't wait for the fall challenge. (I already have something in the works.)

That looks great! That'll be great for next time you have a dinner party. How did you print on the burlap?
