Cheese Board Cloche and Picture Frame Project

Love finding something small to paint. The dome/base cheese dish was picked up on Saturday thrifting.



I've tried a similar project here and it was successful. 



Sunny afternoon, the kitchen was bright and a bit of painting seemed like a good idea.

Santa Fe Turquoise CeCeCaldwell chalk-clay paint + sanding block, wiping cloth/newspaper and paint brush.


Things were going well so I painted a brown frame.



Three coats of Santa Fe Turquoise CeCe Caldwell on each piece . Dried overnight.


Waxed the frame.




Polished the frame.



The cheese board was not quite as successful. I had not noticed any oil stain from cheese but after the paint dried there was staining. Couldn't find my shellac so I will pick some up tomorrow, coat the stain and paint again. Maybe add some Graphics Fairy text.



Thanks for visiting.

  1. I like the colour you chose Joy, I've not tried using any chalk paints - only spray cans. I'm sure a graphic or text will hide the cheese stains and the Graphics Fairy is my favourite go to blog as well.
    Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  2. Hi Joy,

    There's a product called, "Kiltz" that will cover over any stain. After only one coat, you can reapply the lovely blue, and I think you'll be pleased.

    Thanks for playing today.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  5. Beautiful color. Isn't it aggravating when the paint dries and out come the stains? Thank you for sharing at Make It Monday.

  8. I see lots of cheese plates as I thrift about town. I like that you painted yours. Is the paint food safe? I might be tempted to try it.

  15. Ugh I have slaved over projects only to find out afterwards that there was an unknown stain--will shellac help that? How?
