Blog Link Party and Framed Menu Board or To Do List Tutorial

Today’s blog link party is sponsored by Lowes.

This month, Lowes challenged their creative team to make a project using the Pantone Color of the Year.

Pantone announced that the color of the year is Radiant Orchid. I don’t have a lot of pinks or purples in my home, but this color makes a fun accent color, and I thought a framed menu board will be perfect in my kitchen this spring! If you’re not big on menu planning, you could turn this into a calendar, a shopping list or a to-do list. The options are endless! Here is how I made it:

1. Grab a frame. I painted a regular brown frame the fun Radiant Orchid.

2. I cut a few paint swatches to the size I wanted them to be and then rounded the corners.

4. Then I placed the paint swatches where I wanted them to be and glued them down with a glue stick.

6. Lastly, put it in the frame and call it good!
