Switching Up the Look of a Cloche with Chalkboard Paint

Over at Cherished Bliss, Ashley had a little cloche that she’d picked up at a thrift store a while ago, but hadn’t figured out how to use it, yet.  She decided that since she gets excited about decorating for different seasons, she should turn this cloche into something that would work for a number of different seasons, holidays, and occasions.

This project turned out to be really simple, and Ashley gives credit to Plaid’s new FolkArt Multi Surface Paint  and Plaid’s Chalk Anything paint for that.  She was able to use the same paint for both the wood and the glass cover.  Both surfaces were turned into chalkboards, with the glass getting just a stenciled banner for its chalk friendly surface.  Isn’t that fun?  I’m thinking this idea would be super fun for displaying and labeling cheeses or other treats at a tasting party!

    cute…. but why do you all call these “cloches?” they are CHEESE boards.. I received one like that for a shower gift…..40 years ago! actually i got more than one…. very 70’s. but I am allergic to cheese and finally dumped them all…. too bad, eh?? I could have an authentic cloche!! but not to worry… I have plenty of other stuff that is now very anthro , cool, vintage etc and still love…. and I got then ( or family did) in the 50’s-70’s.

      Okay, Barbara…if you want to get all technical on us! You are right, they are definitely cheese boards, but they make pretty good cloches too, don’t they? I’m pretty sure the reason Goodwill is full of these babies is that lots of other brides dumped theirs, too!

    I immediately regret not buying all of those cloche/cheese boards I saw the other day at the goodwill. AAaaaggghh.
