Repurposing Round-Up: Cutting Board Edition

So, with this month’s repurposing round-up, I’m sharing one of my FAVORITE Goodwill finds- wooden cutting boards! I am telling you, they are the ultimate blank canvas- no matter the shape, no matter the construction, no matter the kind of wood used, they are just begging to be upcycled and repurposed.

With very little work, a beat up, scarred, and stained cutting board can get a gorgeous facelift and be as good as new in just a few minutes. Take it a step or two further, and you have a brand new piece of home décor! So, I’ve gathered a few of my favorite ideas to provide some inspiration for you….

DIY Clip Board– A simple but GENIUS reuse for an old cutting board, with great farmhouse style.

So, which idea is your favorite? Or, have you created something else entirely using a Goodwill cutting board? I always snap them up whenever I’m thrifting because you just never know when inspiration will strike!

Craft on!
