Menu board

I had one more triple frame to paint yesterday and I thought I would try something a little different with it. I decided to turn it into a dry-erase menu board.
I painted the frame black and then I took a nesting box and chopped it down with the chop saw and painted that black as well.
I glued the nesting box to the bottom of the frame. I figured that would be a nice place to keep the markers. With a little vinyl lettering I created a place to write what's on the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Easy as pie and I'm up for anything that can help tackle the "what's for dinner?" question.
