Make it Entertaining: Chalkboard Cheese Plate

Chalkboard Cheese Plate

Go hang a salami, I’m a lasagna hog, lucky readers,

is a palandromically applicable phrase for today’s post, which is not something I can often say. We’re talking diy cheese party, people, and this is the easiest possible way for you to class things up fast. So grab some chalk paint, make a quick chalkboard cheese plate, and you can bet your gorgonzola that your friends will be like “holy Oaxaca”, this girl’s gouda…or guy…guy’s gouda…inclusivity only here. you get the point.

I pulled this plate out of the trash at my restaurant, rejected for a tiny chip on the side. I’d recommend upcycling- look for a rectangular plate at a consignment store that has at least a 1″ rim- but I’ll never know the difference if you just buy one.

asiago la vista! …that made no sense…I can’t believe it’s only Wednesday.

Chalkboard Cheese Plate

Materials:

Black Chalkboard paint
Paint Brush
Rectangular Plate
Masking Tape
chalk

Directions:

Step 1- Carefully mask off the rims of the plate with masking tape
Rims of plate are carefully masked off

Step 2- Coat the rims only, let dry about 10 min, then apply a second coat. Remove the masking tape immediately, and carefully, so not to pull off sections of the paint

masked rims are coated in chalkboard paint

Step 3- sanding is optional, I did not do this because I liked the look, and intended for this to be a quick project, but follow the directions for the paint you selected

Step 4- enjoy! add in your charcuterie et fromage, and label it with a piece of chalk. Complete with mustards or jams. C’est parfait!

DO NOT DISHWASH- avoid covering painted section with food. Gently hand wash unpainted ceramic portion between use. Use a dry bar towel to rub off the chalk.
