Cutting boards and cutting stencils

Cutting boards and cutting stencils


So I have been a wee bit obsessed about my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine since I figured out how it works. I already posted one project with a cutting board. I had a stash of a few other cutting boards so I did them all at once.


There was a third one, but I don't have a "before" pic of that one.




I cut out all three designs on one 12 x 12 inch sheet of vinyl.


I chose white for the Folk Art Sheepskin as the color for the Farm Fresh Eggs.


I used Folk Art Vintage Mustard on the other two. All three received two coats.



I sanded each one to distress the paint. The cuts on the board really add to the distressing.


I took this photo as I was starting to add a coat of matte polyurethane. This really shows how a coat of polly can bring out the depth of the wood as well as protect the paint. All three cutting boards received two coats of poly.


Maybe I should keep this one...it goes so well with my other chicken decor.


I was really happy with these two as well. All of these were super simple. The most difficult part was trying to figure out if I could get all on one sheet of vinyl but still keep the artwork at the right size for each board. Now I will be on the hunt for more cutting boards... :)

Whether my junk is from a garage sale, estate or farm auction, flea market or the side of the road, I love to find it, fix it, clean it, sell it or keep it. So come along the backroads of Indiana with Junk is My Life (me), let's find something vintage and do something cool with it! Formerly Junk Journal.
