Chalkboard Cheese Tray

I project that I saw on Pinterest a while ago was a chalkboard cheese tray, and I thought that it would be the perfect gift for my Mother-in-Law, who hosts dinner parties regularly and is always entertaining one group or another of close family and friends.

I had my tray ($1 at the dollar store!), and I had my Americana Chalkboard away I went, following the directions to-a-tee.

Such a simple and easy, and unique gift to give the hostess on your list! Apply one coat of the Chalkboard Paint either horizontally or vertically, and allow to dry for one hour. After it's dry, apply another coat whichever way you didn't apply the first.

Let cure for 24 hours! This was the hard part for me...I wanted to test it out immediately!

Once cured, lightly rub chalk on the surface, then wipe it off with a damp cloth.


Chalkboard Cheese Tray!! I'll be giving mine with a handmade eco-friendly cracker basket from Tina Dean Designs, and I really think that this is one gift that my Mother-in-Law is going to love!

*I was provided the Chalkboard Paint by DecoArt Inc. for the purposes of creating this project and writing a review on my blog.
