6 Menu Board Ideas to Copy in Your Home

Adding a menu board to your home is a fun and functional way to incorporate your cooking routine into your decor. Most often, you’ll see them used in one of two ways. Either they are used to plan out your meals for the week, or they can be used for dinner parties and special occasions to show guests exactly what they’ll be enjoying for dinner. We love both ideas; here are six ways to add one to your home.

  • Dry-Erase Menu Board – Sane Simplicity: We love this idea for menu planning. Just use a dry-erase marker on the glass to write in what you’ll be making for each night of the week.
  • DIY Chalkboard Menu Board – The Kitchn: With this DIY you can create a menu board in whatever shape you like. It’s an easy project that only takes a couple of hours.
  • Recipe Card Clip Board – JolieMae Collections on Etsy: We love this option that you can buy or DIY. It’s especially perfect if you keep your favorite recipes on cards.
  • Kraft Paper Roll – Brooklyn Limestone: Consider hanging a roll of kraft paper like this in your dining room, that way whenever you have a dinner party you can update the menu you’re serving.
  • Letter Board – Art of the Menu: You’ll have to head to an industrial supply store to find a letter board like this one, but we love it as part of a dining room gallery wall. You can use it as a menu or to just share a welcome message.
  • Oversized Chalkboard – Restore 818: If you have the space and can find a vintage frame, don’t be afraid to take over a whole wall with your menu board. Of course, you can also use it for so much more than just a menu.

If none of these DIYs are within your crafty skills (or time) then take a look at these three menu chalkboards:
