Thrift Shop Fish Cutting Board Repurpose

 I think this is my very first fish cutting board thrift shop find.  I usually clean my cutting boards with Krud Kutter to remove any residue from cooking oil.  Krud Kutter is also great for cleaning crud around the house.



 I paired the cutting board with a very large wooden candle holder from my stash.

 I used a 1/4" x 2" dowel screw to attach the cutting board to candle holder to create yet another cutting board shelf/riser for decorating.  Drill a starter holes in each piece so the two pieces don't twist together crooked.

To give my fish riser a beach-y feel, I brushed on some Varathane wood stain in sun-bleached gray.  Since the base had already been stained and may have had a sealer, I rubbed off almost all of the stain so it wouldn't be sticky.  Stain that doesn't soak into the wood will sit on top and become sticky.
  Once dry, I sealed the piece with Varathane Crystal Clear Matte water based poly.  The knife marks became much less visible after sealing.

Here is my little fish cutting board makeover!  I also added a piece of upside down bead board paneling to a decorative picture frame and stenciled "Beach" in ivory paint on a gray background.  The Beach stencil is from the Old Sign Stencils Getaway Collection.
