Do you love to host parties?
This Chalkboard and Football Serving Tray is multi purpose and is perfect for hosting parties! One side is perfect for football parties and of course Super Bowl. Flip it over and the chalkboard side is perfect for all your other parties. Use the chalkboard side to label food items or write something to your guests. The tray makes it easy to carry and serve several food items.
What is great about this serving tray is that the wood is already precut at 36 x 16 inches, so no saw is needed. I used a very similar panel to make my Chalkboard Workout Calendar.
TOOLS FOR SERVING TRAY
SUPPLIES FOR SERVING TRAY
- 1 – Paint Grade Edge – glued Panel 36 x 16 x 21/32 (Lowes)
- Stain – Minwax stain in Dark Walnut and Rust-oleum stain in Weathered Gray
- Frog tape
- Chalkboard paint
- Paint – white chalk paint, football field in paradise green
- NFL colors from Glidden Team Colors (optional)
- Stencil (optional) made from Silhouette Cameo
Make sure to sand the panel board to create a smooth surface.
Step 1) Apply stain to the borders and sides of the both sides of the panel. I layered Minwax stain in Dark Walnut followed by Rust-oleum stain in Weathered Gray. I thought it was a little too gray for what I was looking for so I applied another layer of the Dark Walnut and I was happy with the results.
Step 2) Chalkboard side: I created a border around the panel using Frog Tape. Then I applied two coats of Chalkboard paint to one side of the board. Wait about 24 hours then SEASON the chalkboard. I left the Frog Tape on for this part to prevent any chalk from getting on the stained area.
The chalkboard side is complete.
Step 3) Football side: I applied a one inch border around the wood panel using Frog Tape. Next I applied a couple coats of white chalk paint. I used my Silhouette Cameo to create a stencil of yardage lines and markers for the football field.
I applied the stencils and then painted a few coats of Behr Paradise of Greene paint over the stencils, this would allow the white to show through once the stencils were removed. Then I added “BRONCOS” to the end zones, and added the Broncos mascot to the middle of the board. I added a sealer to the football side to protect the paint from party fouls.
