Cutting Board Makeover

Hello! Welcome to my blog!
I have a glass cutting board that has been screaming for a while now for me to do some sort of makeover to it. It used to have a black backing that wore out so I removed it. 
I found some awesome wrapping paper at Winners/Homesense.

 I love old newsprint!
So.... I cut the paper the size of the cutting board. I colored in a few red areas on the paper to go with the red accessories in my kitchen. Then I mod podged the paper to the cutting board. I did a few coats
of Mod Podge as it is a cutting board that I do wash and it always sits on my counter so it needs to be water proof. When everything was dry I took an exacto knife and cut the edges of the paper that were too large for the board. I added Mod Podge to those cut parts to seal the edges.

It has been a week now since I have made the cutting board. I was not sure how it would hold up - this was definitely a "try"al. So far so good. Keep in mind - I do not submerse it in water - but I do put it over my sink and wash it with a very wet cloth, striving not to get the back wet. 

I absolutely love the new look!
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. How cute! And it sounds like it was easy enough that if it does wear out, you could easily replace the paper and give it a whole new look again.
