Here is another thrift store makeover!! These are seriously my favorite type of crafting to do! It is so fun to go to thrift stores, flea markets and yard sales and find treasures or potential treasures! You find something old and worn and bring it to life or give it a whole new life! I got two of these cutting boards, in a previous post I made over one farmhouse style you can see that here, this one I am doing in a super cute sunflower! For both projects I used stencils I had purchased on Amazon in one pack. So if you ordered them you’ll have the stencils to do both projects!! You can find them here! Lets get on with this thrifted sunflower cutting board makeover!

Thrifted Cutting Board
Sunflower Stencil –Amazon
Black Acrylic Paint
Yellow Chalk Paint (Summer Porch)
Start by cleaning your cutting board with warm soapy water, and then wipe it down with rubbing alcohol. Next I taped my stencil to the cutting board on the back side, or whichever side you choose to be the back. Using a sponge pouncer I did several light coats of black acrylic paint. The key to stenciling is to use light coats, allow to dry and go over it again, less is more! Once it dries remove the stencil and if needed use a scraper or toothpick to clean up any bleeding.
Next I took the yellow chalk paint and painted right over the sunflower, this took a couple coats, as you want to make sure you have full coverage so you can’t see through it. Once that is dry you can put a sealer on it if you choose.
Finally I wrapped some twine around the handle and used some for a hanger. Then I made a twine bow and glued a button in the center and then glued that to the twine I wrapped around the handle! DONE!! This was so much fun to make!! It gave this old cutting board a whole new look!
How adorable is this?! I love how it turned out. I was thinking after I may have chosen to do a dark yellow, but I still love it as it is!
