Bon Appetit! DIY French Placemats!!!

I am loving this DIY project! I wanted to make some French place mats for a while. I have to say these wooden place mats turned out pretty well! Admittedly, I went a bit camera crazy!!!







MDF boards, sand paper, white primer, black paint, white enamel paint (for the lettering) and a clear sealant is all you need to make beautiful French menu inspired placemats!

    1. Hi Rani, thanks so much for linking up your cheese board and these amazing placemats! I love them!!! What kind of material did you make them out of? Wood? How thick? I would LOVE to make some of these.

    2. Hi Mandy, thank you for your lovely comment. The place mats are made of MDF. About 0.5mm thick. I'll post a few more pics soon in the online shop section with more details. Thanks for following me and hope you have a lovely weekend!

  2. Oh shoot Rani, the link for your placemats didn't show up at the party! Please try again and then I will delete the blank one. Your awesome cheese board showed up though!

  21. This is such a great project! I love it's simplicity. In fact, it's downright cinchy ... and would be perfect at our "It's a Cinch" multi-blog link party. The link stays open until midnight Friday and when you link at one blog, you're automatically linked up to the party's five co-hosts ...

    Hope to see you at the party!

  22. What a fun idea - I love chalkboards, I love to eat - the two combined is perfection!

    So glad you joined our Cinch party.

  24. Hello! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work?
    I am brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
    I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
