Today I am sharing a quick update to an old thrifted find using stain and stenciling. I first shared this find on Thrift Shop Thursday #18. As you can tell, I am so into wood trays, wood signs, and cutting boards at the moment!
This update was super easy. I stained the wood and let it dry. I then used my Cricut Cutter and cut out the letter K and used it as a stencil. I then used black paint and stippled it over the stencil. I used the black to tie it in with the black hooks on the wall shelving.
The only thing I might do differently with this tray/cutting board is add a few more coats of stain to make it a bit darker. I want to live with it like this for a while then see how I feel in a few days before I jump in and add more stain.
I had everything on hand so this was a free update and a great project to work on while be snowed in again! At this rate, the Gman will be going to school until the end of June! Don’t get me wrong I love snow days, I only wish they did not have to make them up at the end of the year. I am so over school by the end of May that it is a struggle getting them out the door after that!
I hope you enjoy this quick and easy update to an old thrifted find!
Until Next Time,
