Upcycled Menu Board

6:00:00 AM

Another roadside treasure!


This fabulous find was a table leaf. 
It is very old, has a rusty old hinge at the top and dowel 
pegs on one side to fit in as a table extension. 
I thought if I stood it up on one end...


and stapled a piece of cotton ribbon
between the pieces, it would 
open only partially...



I thought it would make a great menu board...
So I taped off the part I wanted 
to make into a chalkboard...




and drew and painted on the word "menu",
then distressed it a little...



Now everyone at my 
next barbecue will know what's on 
the menu!



Bon Appetit!
Susan
