Hand Painted Strawberry Cutting BoardI’m participating in the Craft Room Destash Challenge again this month! I raided my craft stash and spent $0 hand painting strawberries on a wooden Farberware cutting board I found at Goodwill last month. Spring is in the air, and for me, spring means strawberries! It is a Lowcountry tradition for my family to pick strawberries in April. Sometimes we go with another family or two, and sometimes we just take the kids, and enjoy the atmosphere of the farm and the scent of the strawberries on a beautiful Saturday morning. I wanted to bring that Saturday morning feeling into my kitchen this spring, with this Hand Painted Strawberry Cutting Board. My beloved Keurig died last week, and I bought a gorgeous new red one. I thought it might be fun to coordinate my hand painted cutting board with my new Keurig, and my favorite coffee sign.
