I don’t have very much wall space in our kitchen, but I still had room to hang a few cutting boards that I recently painted. If you’re looking for an easy, less-than-30-minute project for your kitchen or dining room walls, this is it. I always pick up wood cutting boards when I see them at Goodwill or Habitat ReStore. It doesn’t matter how scratched they are. Just grab some painter’s tape, a small brush and some black paint. (I’ve used both gloss and chalkboard.) They’re easy to hang, and there’s something about the texture paired with the dark paint that I really like.
(Our kitchen walls are Shoji White and the pantry doors are Urbane Bronze—both by Sherwin Williams. All of my paint colors are listed here.)
