Cutting Board Makeover (Video!)


Transform plain wood cutting boards into beautiful vintage-inspired kitchen decor in less than 30 minutes. Distressing techniques include beating up the wood with a hammer, followed by stain (or danish oil). Ink transfer paper and mesh stencils from A Maker’s Studio.

Making your own kitchen decor is a quick and rewarding project (see my vintage tea towels and mug projects), but now my focus is using cutting board displays as pretty decor.

Some boards are just a bit too new for my current tastes, so I gave them a vintage treatment using A Maker’s Studio products, and they look amazing now.
