Farmhouse Cutting Board


I bought this rustic antique footed cutting board last month while we were home in Ohio. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it, but it was too fantastic and too reasonably priced ($28) to pass up. It's made from a single 18" wide board, and my dad, the wood expert, said he thinks it's butternut wood. The patina on the old wood is so beautiful.


I ended up adding the cutting board to my dining table centerpiece. I loved the ironstone and grain sack combo before, but that layer of rustic wood makes it perfect. It looks like a piece of an old farmhouse table. It was my favorite find from our trip!

  4. It is absolutely delightful! Just love it, Ellie! And the ironstone with it is pure magic!! I have an old footed board, but it is weathered and has more gray to it. It is also pieced together, but I still adore it!!
    Have a fabulous evening!
    Blessings,
    Becky
