If there is one accessory that a Farmhouse can not have too many of… it is the cutting board! Not only are they used for chopping and cutting but they look great in vignettes… as wall art and simply placed on your counter or table. This one will require a bit of work… but what you will have in the end is a piece of art that will help you prepare food… serve it and just look fabulous any where you place it. Jen over at The House of Wood is sharing a very detailed tutorial that I know you will totally enjoy.

It’s versatile and looks incredible. Check this one out… it could be just what you have been looking for.

For those of you that love the Charming Cottage Farmhouse Look… I think you should visit Dainty Dress Diaries where you will see a total transformation of what use to be a very traditional piece turn into a Cottage Charmer!

See how it was done and maybe you would like to try it on a piece of furniture that you were saving for something special.
