Magnolia Market Style Farmhouse Serving Plank

As much as I’d love to visit  Magnolia Market, I don’t see that happening in the near future, but I did some online “window  shopping” and spotted a few things I love.

Make your own Magnolia Market Inspired Farmhouse Serving Plank -

One of them is their Farmhouse Serving Plank.

I love that it can be used to serve food, but can also be used as a table centerpiece.

It’s actually similar to the rustic table centerpiece I made  and used in the autumn (seen here) and at Christmas (seen here), but their version has a handle on it, which I really like.

I decided to modify my rustic centerpiece into one that’s Magnolia Market style with a handle, and recruited my husband to help me. 🙂

He used my roll of craft paper (affiliate link) that I bought at Lowes to sketch out a pattern, then traced the pattern onto my salvaged wood plank and cut it out with our jig saw.

That was all there was to it!  Then I got the fun part filling it up as a serving platter.

I ran out of time before storm clouds rolled in and made my house too dark to take photos in, but later I’ll dress it up as a table centerpiece again, and share how it looks.

Now, I should mention that if I was really serving food on old rustic wood, I would lay wax paper down first, or put the food on small plates and put those on the plank.

I wouldn’t put fresh food on wood that came out of my barn, but for photo purposes, I did today. 🙂

To make your own, here’s a few things to keep in mind:

If you only plan to use it as a centerpiece, using rustic old wood looks awesome.

If you are planning to actually serve food on it, I would select new wood (so that it’s bug and rot-free), and use a food-safe sealer.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. That turned out great, Angie…so many decorative ways to use it, too!

  2. What a great recycle project and I love the look of old barn wood.

    This is a great idea for a center piiece,thanks Angie.

  4. Angie – this so creative. I am always inspired by the way you think of things in a new way. And I really like how the wood looks. I know a little about Magnolia Market, as it is about 2.5 hours from us. It’s a destination in itself with five food trucks parked on property, places to sit outside, the shop, the gardens, and price-points between $4 and $100. My little girls had saved up and had enough to buy small items for $10. There is something there for everyone. Joanna moved her shop from its previous, smaller location to a place across the highway from Baylor University. It is now very easy to get there. If you ever decide to road trip to Chip and Joanna’s in Waco, try to make the trip coincide with Round Top Antiques Week in the fall. Specifically, at Marburger Farm. Opening day (September 27 this year) is the best people watching of the whole event. Marburger is filled with things from all over the world tucked into inspiring displays. The Junk Gypsies (another show) are just up the street from Marburger, and you can pop into their store if you make it to Marburger Farm. Also across from Marburger is the Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Bed and Breakfast and shop. If you cannot go to Texas soon, it is fun to look at these places on Pinterest! Thank you again for inspiring us!!!!

  5. I have the wood – I really want to make one of these!

  6. I really love reclaimed wood items Angie and your serving plank doesn’t disappoint! I need to make some smalls for my shop. These would be great!
