DIY: Chalkboard Cheese Stone



When my dad called me and said he had a bunch
of slate tiles that he was giving away, I immediately thought
about painting one for a cheese stone! It's literally the easiest
DIY in town....pretty sure a 5 year old could own this one.

For the record:
I will never turn down a good cheese plate, delicious bread
and/or crackers and some snacks to go along with it.
I know you all wanted to know that desperately!

To get started...

What you will need: slate tile of your choice, chalkboard paint, foam brush

Make sure you lay some newspaper or any kind of paper down before you get your paint on. 
Just squeeze about a silver dollar size worth of paint on your stone and start brushing away!
Add more paint as needed. Do one coat and then let dry. Once it has completely dried, 
apply a second coat for maximum coverage.


Writing on the uneven slate can be hard 
(especially for those who write like child...I may or may not be talking about myself).
Just have a damp paper towel around in case you need to re-write 
anything. The chalk will wipe right off.


 Enjoy!

Is the paint food safe when it dries? Will any brand of chalkboard paint work?

Karen said...

Wondering if paint is food safe and how permanent it is? I envision it chipping off when guests are cutting off a slice from a block of cheese.

For about 30 minutes WhatsApp web stays logged in after you close tab and once you open the web again, it will be able to access WhatsApp if your phone has an active internet connection. Such an alert is shown when someone is spying your WhatsApp through the web.The WhatsApp web activate notification means that your WhatsApp account has been logged in from another device. Usually, such notification appears when someone is spying on your WhatsApp through the web. When you do see such a notification, and if it is not you who has logged into your WhatsApp account via your laptop, then it can only mean that someone is viewing your WhatsApp.
