HOW-TO Sand both sides of the 12-by-48-inch project board using 120-grit sandpaper. Wipe the surface with a lint-free rag, and sand both sides again with 220-grit sandpaper. Repeat with 320-grit sandpaper. Using a staining rag, stain both sides of the board and let dry. For a deeper colour, add a second coat of stain. Once the board is dry, use the painter's tape to mask off the perimeter and edges of the board to create a border that will remain unpainted. Spray with chalkboard paint in even strokes on the unmasked portion of the board. Allow the project to dry completely before carefully removing the tape. Fasten the handles of your choice. Add a custom message or design with chalk and use to serve. MATERIALS 12-by-48- inch pine project board 120/220/320 grit sandpaper Two-inch painter's tape Chalkboard spray paint Minwax Wood Finish stain of your choice (we used Early American for our project) Staining rag Handles of choice and fasteners (we used drawer pulls) chalkboard SERVING TRAYS Add flair to your next function with a custom serving platter. Whether you are serving crudités or gourmet treats, it's a fun and functional way to add a personal touch your guests will love. NOTE: Do not place food directly on the chalkboard surface. We use small, decorative dishes or wax paper for food safety.
