Upcycled Menu Board

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!
