Wine Barrel Two Sided Chalkboard8:45:00 AM
I found a beautiful extra large cutting board
at a garage sale...
With inspiration from the Ballard catalog,
I turned this cutting board into a decorative 2 sided
chalkboard to hang on the wall.
I painted one side of the cutting board with
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White. I painted
the chalk paint creating texture by using a
heavy handed brush stroke in several different directions.
The stenciled design is inspired by
the wine barrel plaques from the Ballard catalog.
I used a palm sander to heavily distress areas of
the cutting board then dark waxed over the Old White.
The texture created from the heavy brush strokes
shows well when dark waxed.
This technique helps give the piece an old world look.
I painted the other side of the cutting board with chalkboard paint.
I used a strip of painters cloth to hang the chalkboard.
This chalkboard can be hung on the wall displaying the
wine barrel side or the chalkboard.
