Free Large Wooden Spoon & Fork Upcycle

Oops!  I almost forgot to take a "Before" pic of this wooden 26" spoon and fork my mom salvaged for me from the garbage when one of her fellow tenants moved out of the apartment building.  As you can see, I am painting the spoon and fork white.  To be exact, I am painting the wooden spoon and fork with Fusion Paint (Champlain)

I had another glued end board (1" x 12" x 48) from Menard's on hand.

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.
