Chalkboard Cheese Platter & CCBG #29

DIY Chalkboard Cheese Platter

Although I have a lot of cutting boards in my farmhouse stash, you can purchase an inexpensive cutting board in any shape for this project. Grab some painter’s tape, Martha Stewart chalkboard paint and a paint brush for this quick and easy DIY chalkboard cheese platter.

Supplies needed for a quick and easy DIY chalkboard cheese platter

I taped off the edges of the cutting board with some painter’s tape and no I did not measure…that takes too much effort….so I just eyeballed the edges and added the tape.

Tape of the edges of the cutting board and add one coat of chalkboard paint

I added one coat of the Martha Stewart Chalkboard Paint to my cutting board and let it dry for one hour. Then I added a second coat of chalkboard paint and let it cure for 24 hours.

Priming the chalkboard cheese platter with some chalk

Next I rubbed white chalk all over the chalkboard to prime it and get it ready for writing messages. Then I added some twine to the handle along with some fun flea market trinkets I have picked up along the way this summer.

Lastly, I added the cheese to my DIY chalkboard cheese platter and enjoyed a delicious glass of wine. When I am done using my chalkboard cheese platter I can write a message and hang it on the wall.

My Featured Post of the Week

I have been considering {for a VERY, VERY, VERY long time} if I should add some open shelves to my kitchen. I am pretty sure these farmhouse chic open shelves submitted by Lolly Jane have me convinced that I need to make the leap and just do it. This is a great tutorial and I absolutely love how she has styled the shelves with all her farmhouse goodness and those signs….ahhhhh….love them.
