I started collecting vintage bread boards quite some time ago.
As the holidays approach I've been rearranging, cleaning and ruthlessly culling out excess stuff
and giving it away.
While rearranging things, I decided I was tired of the drying rack photo display and in its place decided to do my own version of a gallery wall display using some of my bread boards.
I LOVE using ordinary objects as art!
The texture of the the different types of wood, as well as
the variety of shapes of the bread boards make for an interesting display.
To hang the bread boards just right, I took a big sheet of wrapping paper,
laid it on the floor and arranged the boards on top of it.
When I had them the way I liked, I traced around the boards and marked where the hole for hanging was on each one.
Then, using painters tape, I taped the paper on the wall using a level to make sure it was straight,
and pounded the nails in the correct spots right through the paper.
Then I just ripped the paper down and hung the bread boards.
It worked perfectly!
I'm loving it!
