Wandering the aisles of Home Depot recently, looking at options for a new kitchen floor, it occurred to me that the single floor tiles would make perfect cheese and charcuterie boards and were a steal at under $2 apiece. I generally use platters or cutting boards to arrange cheeses on, but I love the smooth, cool marble of a floor tile and the fact that I can have a whole variety of colors, textures and sizes in my kitchen for under $10. Cheese and charcuterie boards are an easy, trendy way to entertain and using floor tiles makes presentation easy.
I picked up a few different tiles in a variety of surfaces some square, others rectangular, some glossy, some matte they ranged in price from $1.40 $1.87.
I figured they might be awkward to pick up if set out flat on the table, and their rough undersides might scratch some surfaces, so we picked up a package of rubber feet the peel and stick kind.
They cost around $2 also at Home Depot. They also had felt ones and cork ones, but I figured the silicone kind would be more washable of course with a felt bottom, it would be easy to simply wipe the surface of the tile. An alternative might be to glue a square of felt to the bottom.
Although they stuck quite firmly, I added a dab of glue for good measure.
One in each corner and I had built 4 different cheese and charcuterie boards in about 5 minutes, for around $2 apiece. I may just make more to give as Christmas gifts this year and maybe at some point Ill choose a new kitchen floor to match!
Happy holiday entertaining!
