Altered Cheese Cutter Board

Hi everyone and Happy Mother's Day!  Today I am sharing an altered Cheese Board I create using a board I found at a local thrift shop.  One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is to browse local thrift shops for items to alter. To me it is like a treasure hunt and I never know what treasures i will find!

What caught my eye on this cheese board was that the ceramic insert was missing. This made the perfect insert for a scene. 

To see a closer view of this altered item, you can check out the video below. 

To begin, I painted the entire board with Old Bronze Color Wash paint.

Then I covered the background with some cardstock using ModPodge.

I wanted to have several layers, so I build them up using various metal objects, Idea-ology items, Trinkets from Architextures and items from the Junque Packs.

I didn’t want the cheese slicer to move so I found a mini ruler that I glued over the slit to keep the slicer in place. I then added a metal object. I also added the Vintage sign shop to the top of the cheese slicer.
