Difficulty: Easy

When I spied this beat up (and, admittedly, a little gross) wooden cutting board at the thrift store, I snapped it up immediately. I have been wanting to create a primitive little sign for our kitchen. Besides, it was only $0.60- can't beat that price, right?

Old cutting boards are PERFECT for making DIY signs, which are so hot and trendy right now. First, I removed a layer or two of its previous life before giving it a rich stain that would look rustic, weathered and wonderfully farmhouse-y.

I love how the board looks now- those knife scars give it a really weathered look! Next, I used an awesome vinyl stencil to transform the cutting board into a sign for our kitchen. ( Check out my full tutorial for all the DIY details and secret tricks! )

After ensuring it would hang securely, I added a couple of hooks for our coffee cups! How cute is that? It's warm and cozy, and just looks perfect in our kitchen. Pumpkin spice latte, anyone?

Materials I used for this project:

  • Cutting Board   (thrift store)
  • Stain   (Home improvement store)

    beautifully done. I would not have thought to do something so neat with an old cutting board.

    Great job ... I did mine in a similar way. I also put two smaller hooks in-between the cups and hung two spoons that already had holes in handle from a camping pouch. Looks neat!

    This is so neat. I'll look for a board at the good-will store, and try making one.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
