How to Re-Purpose Cutting Boards

The Great Craft with Mayfair and RefreshRestyle.com
I received product and compensation for this blog post and had a lot of fun!

In honor of the great craft swap Wayfair sent me a set of cutting boards and challenged me to repurpose them.

I can’t count on one hand the ideas that went through my head, what to do with these??

I was just hoping that it wouldn’t turn out to be a big belly flop!

If that wasn’t enough to stir my creativity, after I finished repurposing them I had to ship them off to another blogger!

A blogger that lives in a beach town. So in the back of my mind, I was thinking beachy. I was hoping I could create something beautiful and useful.

    1. Debbie,

      Everything looks great, but I’m such a fan of chalkboards… so that one is my favorite. I love your wall hanging from Rebecca! What a fun exchange!
