Today, I just wanted to share a piece that I put in my kitchen last week, my menu board. A few months ago, I found this Pepsi sign at a yard sale for $2.
This was not your normal yard sale. It was a warehouse of somebody that had a restaurant. The sign was cool, but what really sweetened the deal was a bag of extra letters that I found and asked if they could be thrown in to sweeten the deal.
This Pepsi sign looks so cute as a menu board! Doesn't it!?!
Well, here's the thing. As much as I liked it, I took the sign down just a couple of days later. Why? Let me show you a picture of my dry erase calendar in my mudroom.
Yes, this picture was taken yesterday not months ago. In March, a friend even pointed out my lack of calendar changing skills, but I still didn't change it. Yesterday, after an eight month long January, I changed the calendar. Well, actually I just erased it, and then the pen wouldn't work so now the calendar is just blank.
I had to be honest with myself, I'm just no good at calendars and menus. Because of my forgetfulness, I knew that cute menu sign would have the same menu on it for weeks, and I knew I would feel a little tinge of guilt for not changing it.
Who would feel guilty over not switching out a menu!?! Doesn't that sound crazy!?! But I knew it would happen so I embraced who I am and took it down.
In place of the menu, I put up a display for the boys artwork. A place to show off our "art" is much more fitting for our home and for me. Tomorrow, I'll be back and share that project.
Oh! And I believe I might use the Pepsi board in the boys room.
