Keep Calm and Eat Cupcakes!
I just love all of the "Keep Calm" sayings that I have been seeing lately. I really wanted to do something unique in my kitchen and did not want to spend a lot of money. I went to one of my favorite Goodwill stores (of course on a day they were having their 50% off sale) and picked up a frame. The frame cost $1.50 and I had bought chalkboard paint to use on another project. I painted the frame white with paint that I had already had and had my husband cut a piece of plywood for me to fit the frame. I painted the plywood with the chalkboard paint and used finishing nails to secure the plywood to the frame. Lastly, I wrote one of my favorite sayings on the chalkboard, "Keep Calm and Eat Cupcakes". It makes me smile every time I walk into my kitchen. You could also use it for your weekly menu, grocery list or a to-do list.
