Wine Barrel Two Sided Chalkboard

8:45:00 AM

I found a beautiful extra large cutting board at a garage sale.

How to make a two sided chalkboard.

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.
