Another Thrift Shop Cutting Board Up-cycle - 3 Ways


My love affair with cutting/bread boards continues! I buy them at thrift shops and garage sales all the time.  Here is my latest one.


In addition to the cutting board, I purchased this metal wall pocket at the thrift store too.

I painted the wall pocket with two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.

I wet distressed the wall pocket with a damp rag, and then waxed it with ASCP clear wax.

Next, I screwed the wall pocket from the front at the top and near the opening to the cutting board with two screws.  I then filled the wall pocket with faux Christmas greenery and red berries.  The metal star is attached with a magnet.  Here is cutting board/wall pocket view number one!

In view number two, I removed the magnetic star and the Christmas greenery and added vintage kitchen utensils.  This view would work year round.

And in view three the wall pocket is filled with vintage cookbooks.  A old photo is attached to the front of the wall pocket with a magnet.  This way will also work year round.

  This makeover was very easy, and the end result is a fun piece for a farmhouse kitchen.

Thanks for checking out my latest cutting board project!
