DIY Color Edge Cutting Boards

Part of this weekend’s little photoshoot featured a couple of cutting boards that I used to feature how I eat my Alpine Lace Swiss Cheese.

Yesterday I shared how to make the Tribal cutting board and today’s DIY project is even easier and quicker!

Here is what you’ll need:

-Multi-surface craft paint
-Proppmatt Chopping Board
-Paint brushes
-Painters tape
-Poly Finish
-Sandpaper -220 grit

STEP 1: Painting the edge of the cutting board couldn’t be easier. It’s wide enough that you really don’t need to use painters tape to mark anything off. A steady hand should be all you need to add a dose of color to your board. I went with a preppy green called Scottish Highlands.


STEP 2: Along with a colorful edge I decided to add a pop of color to the circular opening towards the top of the cutting board. Here is where the painters tape will come in handy. Once it’s applied add your dose of color.


STEP 3: If you were a bit of a messy painter don’t fret. It’s easy to clean up any paint splatter with a little bit of sand paper. Just make sure you go with the grain of the wood and there will be no issues.

STEP 4: Let your paint cure and then apply your poly protective finish. Since the paint is on the edges it does not need to be food safe.

Then add food and enjoy!

    Love this idea Camila! These would make great low cost bridal shower presents, or fabulous Mother’s Day gifts. You could even monogram the back side and hang it on a wall in the kitchen when not in use.

  2. What a great idea! I might have to try this myself sometime soon!
