Together with my son (6 years old) I made this background for my food photos. Very cheap and easy to make, this background helped us spending quality time.
With a piece of hard cardboard and some paint sky is the limit. I already use it for a few photos.
I hope you like it.
I start to like it more and more. For a few years I only used dark backgrounds, but now, I am thinking to go for colored ones too.
So, paint your own backgrounds because is fun and easy and not expensive at all.

really beautiful !
Love that idea. I am trying to learn how to photograph food.
What a great idea!
This is a amazing idea! It’s inspiring, maybe I’ll do it on my own 🙂
Love this idea. I’ve been thinking of making a background for my site’s photos as well. I was thinking plain green but some sort of texture is even better. Thanks for the post! Cheers.
I love it 😍
This looks lovely!
Could you please share the detailed proceedure to make such a board? I’d love to make one for my food photography too. What kind of paints did you use? Did you just paint the cardboard straightaway, or did you use something to cover it?
I just painted straightaway with kids water colors.
I like your idea! I may make a display board for my plant photos. Thank you for the inspiration. Thank you for visiting my website http://www.KathrynHughes_Author.com during National Farmers Market Week.
You are welcome

Amazing! A great idea, especially when food backgrounds are so pricey now.
that`s a great idea, I might try that out to make my backgrounds more interesting and not so bland
