In this blog I show you 3 different cutting board signs, let me know which one is your favourite
Cutting Board Sign #1
I got this cutting board from the Dollar Store but in Canada our dollar stores are not a dollar, so it was actually $4
I then painted 2 coats of DIY White Swan which is a warm white. DIY has several whites to choose from.
After it had dried I coated it with Big Top Sealer. When you use a chalk type paint you need to seal it first if you are using a transfer.
We threw around some ideas and eventually went with a viewers idea of "Lemon Zest"
Then is was time to add the lemons. We used Lemon Drop from IOD and we only cut out what we needed. You can get many projects from just 1 lemon transfer! To see more detail instruction how to apply a transfer, I have added the video below :)
After the transfer was applied I used the Craquelure Stamp
all over to give it the look of crackling....this stamp is so fun
I then sanded it with 300 grit sandpaper (very lightly) just to give it a distressed look. You can skip this part if you don't like the distressed look.
Give it one more coat of Big Top Sealer for protection and your done!. How cute will this look in the kitchen and if you want to give it that extra kick how about a yellow ribbon tide around the neck of the cutting board.
Cutting Board Sign #2
Then we used one of my favourite stamps! Farm Animals, It has a rooster, cow, sheep, pig, and a rabbit
Cutting Board Sign #3
This one had 1 step before painted with DIY White Swan
We used Dark & Decrepit Patina to give it a stained look. It too is all natural and dries within minutes.
You can see more about applying the stain in the video below.
Once the staining was dry, I dry brushed the DIY White Swan leaving some of the stain showing to give it a distressed look.
Once everything was dry (just a few minutes) we sealed it with Big Top Sealer
It's amazing what you can make with just a few stamps and paint!
