How-To--DIY-Chalkboard-Cheese-Serving-Tray

Coat the board with one layer of white paint. Allow to dry for 30 minutes to 1 hour, then sand quickly. Next, tape off the edges with masking tape and paint the entire surface with chalkboard paint. We made two coats, sanding quickly between each steps of the process.

Once the paint is dry, carefully remove masking tape, pulling perpendicularly from the edge. You should get a nice, clean border like the photo above.
