Directions for Folding Menu Sign:

I painted the folding menu sign frame white paint with 3 coats (if you want white!).

Next, I painted the folding menu sign with chalkboard paint to get that true black color.

Style & enjoy!

This entire project takes a couple of days only because the Etsy shop needs 24-48 hours to send you the custom design and get your approval before emailing the final downloadable image. It was much cheaper than you think! $10-$15 well worth it if you're like me and can't do fancy chalkboard lettering to save your life. Once I recieved the personalized download image, it took a day to complete.

  Let me know if you have any questions! 

Warmly, Steph
