Simple notice board

Here is a notice board i made really simply, it took no time at all.
I had originally made this for the SplodgeAway blog, i have however since stepped down from the design team and it wasn't scheduled to be shown so there is no harm in showing it here.
My kids are always asking mam whats for tea, whats for dinner etc, so i made this kitchen menu board to go in the kitchen so i could write the meals on.

I bout a chap photo frame from Wilkinson's, i painted the frame white and then i used a splodgeaway mask and burnt umber acrylic to sponge over the top, i then very gently gave it a sand to give it a little distressed look, i took the back off and added decorative papers and stickers, the cool thing about this is you can change the papers to go with the season, i have used nice autumnal colours at the minute but come Christmas i will change them again.
You need a white board pen or chalk marker to write on the glass then each day simply wipe away and start again.
You can make a larger version for a general notice board/shopping list or to do list.
