Gathering your family and friends together for a birthday, anniversary or just because is what creates wonderful memories that last a lifetime. Laughing, sharing stories and sometimes tears over a lovely meal is so special. So today’s project is a fun way on how to make a Vintage Farmhouse Charcuterie Board to make these special times even more special. This is part of our new look Waste Not Wednesday. A great project to use up any leftover decor transfers that you may have and also a fun way to use milk paint as a food-safe stain. There is also a tonne more Charcuterie Board ideas for you to take a peek at and be inspired below.

Welcome back to Waste Not Wednesday! For those who have been following along for a while you’ll know Waste Not Wednesday as a linky party. But Leanna and I have decided to change things up a bit. Each Wednesday we will be bringing you fun projects not only from us but some of our favourite bloggers. This week’s theme is Charcuterie Boards!
- Scrap Wood – I used a 560mm x 23mm piece
- Sweet Pickins Milk Paint- Galvanized – Just a sample will do
- Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint – Howdy Do Hemp Seed Oil
- IOD Decor Transfers – Wall Flower
- Iron Orchid Designs Decor Transfers – Le Petit Rosier
- 120 grit sandpaper
- Chux Cloth
Step 1 – Mix up your Galvanised Milk Paint 1:4 water. Set aside. Give your piece of scrap wood a really good sand to remove any loose wood. Take your chux cloth and wipe over your board. Let dry and repeat until you get the desired stain colour. I gave mine 3 coats.
Step 2 – Give the entire piece of wood a light sand. Remove any sanding dust with a lint free cloth. Apply your Wall Flower and La Petit Decor Transfers. Burnish with the shiny side of the lined transfer film. This ensures that all of your transfers are adhered properly. Distress to your liking or leave as is.
Step 3 – Using a brush or chux cloth, apply your hemp oil and let soak into your board. Leave over night and wipe off any excess. Re apply if you need.
Step 4 – Attach your hardware. These were a bronze colour and I scuffed sanded, then gave them 3 coats of Fusion – Coal Black.
Now the fun part! Add all your favourite meats, cheeses, olives, sundried tomatoes etc and enjoy!
Over time your board will need to be re-oiled with hemp oil. Hemp oil is food safe and great for also re-oiling your breadboard!
Here is my dear friend Leanna’s beautiful Farmhouse Style Charcuterie Boards that you can cut out and make too!
