My cutting board is bigger than yours

That title is a bumper sticker in the making - ha!  I found this wonderful, large cutting board last Fall.  I knew instantly that I would have to wait for the perfect stencil to come along to make it what I envisioned.  Well, the perfect stencil came along and this baby is going to debut in my updated kitchen with the new backsplash!
I tried different lighting so you could see the design a little better:

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite for the design, let it cure overnight and then sanded for a worn look.

Here is a photo from a distance so you can get a feel for the size:

It compliments the color of my cabinets perfectly and it's nice to have something new in this spot because I've had the same thing there for years.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

I'm a sucker for a cutting board and yours looks great! I just stenciled another too... can a girl have too many?

I've been falling in love with the look of wood cutting boards lately too. Love the warmth they bring to the kitchen. Your new stencil is the perfect touch to this great board.
Oh, and I love your new backsplash! Beautiful!
Spent in couple of days this weekend in your neck of the woods. Well, Dallas & Frisco. Beautiful weather!

It's lovely, and it is bigger than mine.

Beautiful! Your graphic on the cutting board gives that spot a little pop, not too much but just right.
Thanks for stopping by,

My kitchen needs this cutting board! Love the stencil that you used too. I will have to be on the look out for both.
