It's been a windy day here at Maywood Cottage, a good day to stay indoors and watch life outside from my kitchen window while sitting at the bar.
I can hear the chimes on the front porch and on the arbor at the side of the house. They are keeping time with the gusts that are sweeping through.
I've seen this idea for storing a collection of chopping boards on several blogs listed on Pinterest. Some are stored in baskets, others in sewing drawers and some in crates or wooden boxes. I found this beachy style wooden box at Target in the 3.00 - 5.00 section of the store. I fell in love with the rope handles and knew I wanted to use it somewhere in my kitchen.
I painted the box with a sage green color, then varnished it.
Thorough the years I have found a few chopping boards in my favorite vintage/antique shops that I frequent. I have painted designs on a few and sold them in my Etsy shop. They are one of my favorite surfaces to paint on.
