Friday's Favs...Knockoff European Bread Board


I love the look of old European bread boards.
I would love to have one to add to my bread board gallery wall,
but large European bread boards can be quite pricey.

So, I had an idea involving some old pallet boards and my handyman son-in-law.
I showed him a photo of a large rectangular European bread board
and asked if he could make me one out of the old pallet board.
(I am using this for display, not to put food directly on, so I was not concerned with this being food safe.)


He made it in time to give it to me for Christmas, and I love it!
I think it's the perfect finishing touch for my bread board wall.
(And yes, my twig star from Christmas is still hanging there as well.)



Well, it's almost the first Friday of 2014!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and 
a BLESSED weekend!

  2. Smiling over your bread boards. When I was a kid my dad sliced (cut of?) ​​bread on a long wooden bread board. It was quite normal. Everyone had a wooden bread board (thicker than yours, without a handle). But it was also a bit ugly. The knife made deep grooves ​​in the wood. Cleaning was difficult. And, now those boards are hanging on your wall. Without damage by cutting the bread. Great! Nostalgic and fun.

    1. But the old bread boards with the knife marks tell a story, don't they?

  5. What a creative, eye-catching display...love it! We were blessed to have the opportunity to live in Switzerland for awhile and I had fun visiting some of their antique stores. {The name translated into "broken houses". Kind of cool!} I was able to pick up a couple little things that were unique and enjoy seeing a bit of another world in MY world!
    Thanks for sharing your collection of bread boards...and I love that you had the European one recreated! So smart of you!

  7. REALLY nice, Elizabeth! ( I'll bet he enjoyed crafting something that you would enjoy, too....) Wondering: what would it take to make it "food worthy"?????
