I love to serve food on cutting boards. It just looks so rustic and pure. So effortless, but so pretty at the same time. Or, as my boyfriend would say, very ‘Jamie Oliver’. I do love a good ‘plain’ cutting board for this purpose, but sometimes a girl needs a little more than that. Not all food is pretty on it’s own, you know. So today I have a painted cutting board / serving tray DIY for you that will make any food item look amazing.
Learn how to make this DIY painted cutting board after the jump. . .
What you need for a DIY painted cutting board
- A cutting board
- Acrylic paints in different colors (I used black and white)
- Paint brush
- Optional: food save top coat (like this one)
How to make a DIY painted cutting board
1. Use a pencil to draw your design onto your cutting board.
2. Use a small paint brush to paint over the pencil lines. I went for black and white but you could use any color you like. To seal your cutting board you can use a food save top coat.
Hope you like this DIY! Now tell me, what do you want to paint on your cutting board? XO Wilma
