Farmhouse Cutting Board

I bought this rustic antique footed cutting board last month while we were home in Ohio. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it, but it was too fantastic and too reasonably priced ($28) to pass up. It's made from a single 18" wide board, and my dad, the wood expert, said he thinks it's butternut wood. The patina on the old wood is so beautiful.

I ended up adding the cutting board to my dining table centerpiece. I loved the ironstone and grain sack combo before, but that layer of rustic wood makes it perfect. It looks like a piece of an old farmhouse table. It was my favorite find from our trip!


  1. I love your cozy home! Butternut is such a pretty wood.

  2. Another great find for your pretty home. I love rustic woods and the bread board looks lovely with your grainsack and ironstone.

  3. That's a wonderful centerpiece! The cutting board looks great with the whites of the ironstone! I really like your style.


  4. It is absolutely delightful! Just love it, Ellie! And the ironstone with it is pure magic!! I have an old footed board, but it is weathered and has more gray to it. It is also pieced together, but I still adore it!!
    Have a fabulous evening!

  5. That was a good idea to use it for the centerpiece. Good price too. It's beautiful. I am a new follower and really enjoy your way of decor. Thanks for sharing. -Steph-
