Thrift Shop Repurposed Cutting Board Christmas Decor

December 07, 2017

I found a small cutting board at the thrift shop this week for $1.

As you probably know, I love to repurpose and upcycle cutting boards!

First I painted it with two coats of Dutch Boy Chalky Finish Paint mixed in True Black.

The Dutch Boy Chalk Paint is about half the price of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, and works fine for smaller projects.

Next I pulled out my GO TO Christmas stencil for the 2017 Christmas season, *Old Sign Stencils' Buffalo Check Stencil.

On smaller projects, I like placing the stencil on the diagonal.  

Since the board was so small, I didn't tape the stencil down, I just held it down tight.

I stenciled the buff checks on with Deco Art Chalky Finish Paint in Rouge with a Dreamweaver Stencil Brush .

I found a little metal homemade box (it has a little cover too) at a rummage sale last summer for a dollar.

I attached the box to my cutting board with a screw.  The bottom of the box and cutting board are flush so the cutting board can stand on a counter or shelf or hang on the wall.

The snowflake I stenciled on the front of the tin box is also from Old Sign Stencils.

I sealed the cutting board paint and stencils with Minwax Paste Finishing Wax in Natural, using a piece of paper towel.

The stencil on the tin box is sealed with Krylon Satin Finish Spray Enamel .

I added some winter greenery and red berry sprigs and a piece of jute, and my little cutting board project was complete.
