A French Bread Board

How was your Tuesday?
It was a rainy one complaints we sure need it.
I had plans to get out and work on a clients home but unloading goods in the rain, driving thirty minutes into town (in the rain) and wet clothes just didn't sound very appealing to me. 
My clients agreed and I postponed till tomorrow.

So what's a girl to do on a rainy day at home with just the radio and a cup of coffee...why paint something of course.
I had picked up this cute little bread board at the shop a couple of weeks ago

With the help of The Graphics Fairy and her great printables I went to work.

As you can see I wrote down a recipe on the back of this print..lets ignore that!
Using the pencil technique, scribble over your letters, then flip it over and trace over the letters.
The outline will appear on your surface.

Can you see it?
Next just paint or use a paint pen to fill in or trace
That's it!

I distressed mine with some sand paper and put a coat of wax over it to seal it

I love how just a little extra can make a big difference!

A little French touch in my kitchen!

What projects have you been up to lately?

Have a blessed Wednesday my friends!!

  1. Love your breadboard! It looks so wonderful...I love how you did that. It looks like it has always been that way. Great job. I'm a new follower too!

  2. This is really pretty! I would love to have one like this in my house :)

  3. Love this idea. I just saw a huge bread board in a shop this morning that this idea would look so lovely on, but they wanted way too much for it. I'll keep looking:-)


  4. I love your cutting board. Looks fantastic!

  5. Just browsing this afternoon, I found your old blog. I just purchased 11 large glass jars with wooden lids. I love them. I noticed yours. Do you have any problems storing flour and sugar in them? My glass jars do not have a rubber seal and I am unsure about storing food in them. Thanks.
