Menu board in dinning room

I found an extra piece of our kitchen cabinet backing in my local hardware store (aka my basement) and painted on a coat of magnetic paint and then a coat of chalkboard paint. I painted both sides so on a weekend I can write what’s for dinner one night and flip it over for the next all without having to clean it up till Sunday. I plan to frame it out and come up with a better way to hang it. Right now I have it held up by mirror brackets which was a quick a dirty approach of getting it up for Easter dinner.
