Butcher Block Countertop Towel Hangers

This project began with a few butcher block 
countertop samples and an idea.

I began with a few butcher block samples from a cabinet store that went out of business but you could cut yourself a small piece or use a scrap from another project.

I sanded the wood using an electric sander. My samples had a cut down the center that divides two different finishes so sanding it brought both sides back to raw. 

I used a new stencil from Old Sign Stencils for this project. There are several new garden stencils that are the perfect size for many projects. The quality is great so they will last for almost ever. The price of the stencils is in Canadian so the price may look a little higher but they are priced competitively.

I stenciled the design using a foam pouncer and a light coat of paint. You can go over it several times with light coats so you don't have bleed through under the stencil.

The next thing I did was to sand over the top of the stenciled words to give it a little distressing. I added a handle by drilling through the bottom of the wood and used screws to attach the hardware.

I attached 2 D rings to the back to hang the butcher block on the wall and that's all there was to this project.

I mentioned that I had a few samples, another one was walnut, just a little darker. On this butcher block I did the same thing but used 2 knobs instead of a handle. The hangers can be used separately or as a set.

Both of these towel hangers have a beautiful farmhouse look and will look great hanging together or separately in the kitchen.

Another idea for these butcher block samples is a small cutting board for cheese or berries. I used food safe paint and a hemp sealer on the wood.

Any of these repurposed projects make a great farmhouse kitchen accessory.
