My mom found this little cutting board at a thrift shop. She gave it to me.
Cutting Board Easter/Spring Farmhouse Decor Project
I always pick up cutting boards at thrift shops and garage sales. They can be displayed "As Is" or be upcycled/repurposed as fun farmhouse style decor for everyday and for holidays too. This is my most recent cutting board project.
Find A Narrow Cutting Board
I purchased this home decor metal box at a Hobby Lobby store recently. It was priced at $6.99 but I got it at 50% off.
Painting The Cutting Board
After wiping the cutting board down with a damp rag and Krud Kutter Degreaser spray, I brushed on two coats of Dixie Belle Paint in Fluff. The degreaser step is necessary on a cutting board that may have been oiled.
Add A Small Bunny Stencil
I have had the FolkArt Paper Stencil Pack - Garden Icons for several years. The bunny was the perfect size for this project.
Pounce Or Swirl On the Stencil.
After taping the stencil down with blue painter's tape, I swirled and pounced on the stencil using Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash.
Add Faux Distressing With the Layering Block
Instead of distressing the cutting board, I pulled out my Folkart Layering Block.With the layering block, I added Ceramcoat Walnut Noyer Craft Paint to the edges of the cutting board, but it looks like brown paint/stain peeking out under the white paint.
Attach The Cutting Board To The Square Metal Container
Here is the back of the cutting board (uff-da side) and the back of the metal container. The cutting board was placed inside the container and screwed into the metal container from the back. I discovered a small lip on the metal container made the cutting board tilt forward so a small shim was added to the back of the cutting board towards the bottom. The screws were put back in.
Wax The Cutting Board And Accessorize
I waxed the cutting board with Dixie Belle Best Dang Wax and a fiber rag.The adorable buffalo check carrots are from Hobby Lobby too.I added a jute twine tie to the hole on top of the cutting board. (The hole could also be used to hang the bunny display on the wall.)
