~a French breadboard makeover~

My friend gave me this breadboard out of her stash 
because she knows I have a slight breadboard obsession.


This is how it started out, rather orange and shiny.


 First I sanded it down with the grain of the wood using a palm sander. 
Then to tone it down even more I added liming wax.


The liming wax was cool but made it too white, so I mixed a little Annie Sloan clear wax with a tiny bit of dark wax and went over the whole thing.
Perfect.


It's just the perfect color and I couldn't be happier!
I hope to see all you local friends tomorrow at the French Flea Market!

xoxo

I love cutting boards -- I saw a whole kitchen wall done with different cutting boards - all antique and dented. It looked great.
