Hi Friends!

Entertaining at home is one of the greatest joys in life.  Few things bring more comfort to the soul than having your friends and family over for dinner.  When I entertain, I am always looking for fun and unique ways to display my food and wine.

Today – we will be making a Charcuterie (cheese) board with a slate look finish.  It is so fun to use to display and label food and wine.

I am so excited for the opportunity to collaborate with my friend Beth from PB Creates in creating this step by step video of how to create this charcuterie boards for your home.

While you are at it, make one as a gift and charcuterie your way into your host’s heart next time you go to a dinner party.

Below are the written instructions and we also provided the links to the supplies to make it convenient for you.

– After cutting wood to size – 12” x 24” (using table saw or local retail store will cut to size).. drill holes for handles. (we pre-drilled 3/4” in from each end and centered the handle according to the the board).

  1. Take 12” x 24” piece of wood and sand all edges with 80 grain sandpaper.. if sanding surface of the board, always sand with the grain of the wood.
  2.  Once wood is sanded, apply pre-stain.. after 3-5 minutes wipe pre-stain.
  3.   Now apply stain.. when applying stain, apply in the direction of the grain. Once a solid coat has been applied let set for appropriate time depending on stain type (Oil based 5-7 minutes and water based 2-3 minutes). After applying stain wipe stain from top and sides. Once dry repeat process on the bottom of the board.
  4. Now let board dry 20-25 minutes.
  5. Once stain has dried, create boarder with FrogTape.. follow outside edges of board. Once tape is applied press firmly on inside layer to create seal and prevent the paint from bleeding.
  6. After applying FrogTape, roll chalk paint (we use a foam roller listed below). When applying chalk paint start in the middle and apply base coat to taped off section. Roll paint with the grain of the wood and leave edges for last. After 2-3 minutes apply second coat of  paint. Once second coat has been applied, remove FrogTape immediately to prevent any bleeding and let dry.
  7. After Chalk paint has dried, apply a thin layer of varnish on the stained wood areas. Create an even coat of varnish and let dry.
  8. Once Varnish has dried, install handles and felt feet.
