|Old cutting board, with new one. I oiled it after this picture was taken.|
I cut and sanded our new cutting board today. I used a piece of plywood and another piece of that oak flooring from the lot bought for the utility sink. The oak made the facing piece. I was going to reuse the old face, but obviously it had tried to come off several times in the past. There were 12 different finishing nails trying to hold it in place. For a finish I just coated the new board in olive oil. I just kept coating it until it was all soaked up. I will continue to soak the cutting board occasionally until it is totally saturated.
Annmarie brought home paint chips for us to choose colors for the spare room. We are going to go with Olde world gold for three walls and Vogue green for the fourth wall, with Greek villa, off white, finishing out the ceiling. This will be the only room other than Sarah's that will actually have some color on the walls. Who knows, eventually I may get brave and change the colors inside the rest of the house.
