Birthdays, the Loaf Love Tour hitting the road, Wednesday afternoon – we’ll use any reason to celebrate, as long as cheese is involved! But of course, we need a plate to serve all that cheese on! I saw this DIY platter and thought it would be the perfect way to class up our daily cheese celebrations!
Instead of painting the whole plate with chalkboard paint, I decided to paint a thin strip along the bottom of the platter; I didn’t really like the idea of cheese sitting on chalkboard paint. There are some food safe paint options out there, so make sure to read the label before painting.
I already had the white plate and tape (I recommend painters tape because it peels off easily without leaving a sticky residue), so all I needed was some standard chalkboard paint, chalk, and a disposable paint brush.
Tape off the area you want to paint and apply two coats of chalkboard paint, allowing the first coat to dry before applying the second. Allow it to dry overnight and peel off the tape!
