I love it too!


in Germany those boards were very common in the "rustic eighties", everybody has those from Tchibo hidden in the cupboards, as brown stoneware soupbowls for the good old onionsoup, bread and cheese


Looks fantastic! :) So clever! :)


Oh how cool! Good work!


Love it!




Jättesnygg! Härlig färg när ytan ser både ljus och mörk ut.


I have at least a dozen of these boards in my closet from my husbands grandmother! I find them rather dull as is, but now I have ideas. :)

Lorna from Atlanta

Oh my gosh, I have one of those. I bought in the Netherlands about 30 years ago. I still use it almost daily. It's a cheese/bread board that you use at breakfast or lunch to set out cheese etc. for others to self serve. I will never look at it the same way anymore. Good job!

Your mum's place is a treasure trove.


I remember that comment (I made it). I have a board like that at home (without the holes) - why haven't I done this?

So cute!




Nice, Miracle Girl... I'll be on the lookout for one now. ;)


"Nice" of you not to think about copyrights of the designers.


Mary - I won't be selling mine and if you follow the link on Pinterest you come right to the shop where they sell them so it's not like I'll be profiting from this.


I don't agree. You don't sell it, thats true. But you do profit through your blogpost and the clicks you get from the users. More clicks means more money from the ads you have on the side.
It seems everybody thinks its alright to copycat designs etc. It is not.


Mary, there's no need to go on the attack. A button is not a copyrighted shape. Plus, It seems to popular right now - a craft fair I was at a few weeks ago had lots of button-shaped designs - plates, fabrics, platters and yes even a cheese board! Like the trivet idea though - small and useful. Might try this myself :-)


Well done, Benita! I love it! ;-)


Really really cute! Would not have seen it's potential


I was about to comment that the board is a common thing in Germany but then saw that Angela above already mentioned it, haha! Nice one Benita!
By the way, I wrote a little about you on my blog today, with a link back to yours, naturally! I hope you don't mind :)



Debbie from Chicago

Love this!


Love this Benita! Last year I made small buttons out of air-dried clay for Christmas gift wrapping. I see buttons alll over pinterest.

Anne in Portland

I love the more frequent posts! I've been missing Chez Larsson!

Sandy (USA)

So cute! Would make a nice simple gift for Christmas with perhaps a little something else to go with it.

Claire/Just a little less

Love the cute design and you've restored the wood beautifully xo


Very cool!

Mary, you are a bore. This is a site about DIY and encouragement and inspiration.


This is darling-I love it!! Can't wait to make one of my own now :)
