DIY cutting board pedestal

I feel kinda silly even calling this a DIY.

It's that easy.. like you really need my help.


For the record, some of you take even the simplest DIYs and make em better.

Y'all rock!

My precious Maw Maw, now in heaven, used this cutting board. A lot.

She hammered out steaks till they were good n dead. Ha!

I miss her.

Well, anyway.  When she passed everyone received some of her treasures.

This is one of mine.

For years it stayed in the cabinet.

I would brush past it and wish I could use it somehow. enter DIY

I hung on to these old knobs from Maddy's room.

I had painted them zebra from way back when..

My trusty liquid nails.

A small dab will do ya.

Make sure you apply it on the flat side of your knob.

I didn't measure.. I eyeballed it perfect. LOL

I had to laugh here..

It kinda looks like some sort of freaky animal on it's back...LOL

Painted a quick coat over the zebra...

and waaaah' la!

I am deeply in love ...

It blends with my butcher block bar stools :)


I can't pass my kitchen now without smiling and thinking of her.

It's the small things you know..

If you don't own a very old cutting board you can still get this look.

Grab one at your kitchen supply place and give it a good beating.

You can even add your favorite stain to age it up a bit.

Don't want to spend any money?

Use an old piece of wood from your stash :)

You can find the wooden knobs at Lowe's, Home Depot and even Wal Mart.

Just make sure they have a flat side so you can glue them on easily.

Hope this inspires your heart.

keeping it simple, Susie

  14. “You can see the techniques of the knit on this style; Red Bandage Dress one day we will videotape the process of how our pieces are made. Herve Leger sale They weave the base and then hand-apply everything else. And our fit is really key. Oktoberfest Dress These pieces are more like sweaters than anything else—they’re not cut-and-sew, they’re knits—and that’s why they fit so well. People are so surprised at how well Herve Leger fits, and I tell them it’s all about how the dresses are constructed.”And finally, we dress for what we love too. For what we just can’t resist. Lubov, a former dancer, is a big fan of movement, so for her that signals the fringe-trimmed bandage dress.
