Wood Burned Bread Boards

I have an amazing giveaway going on now for a Paint-A-Pillow kit! Stop over HERE to enter!!!!!! 

For Christmas last year I asked my mom for a wood burner. I had big plans for it and was excited to get one. Fast forward to almost a year later and I only just now took it out of the package and got to work........I'm such a slacker.
I don't know what it is about bread boards, but I LOVE them and I usually grab them whenever I see them at thrift stores if they have a nice patina to them. I keep some and sell the rest in my booth. I love the rustic touch they add to a kitchen or vignette.

I brought home a few bread boards from my booth that had been sitting awhile so I could finally try out my wood burner. Here's what I did!!!

Wood burning definitely took some getting used to, but it was fun! The softer the wood, the easier it was to do the shading I noticed. And, I like how the cut marks and gouges from everyday use are really noticeable now. It adds great texture. 







I'm really looking forward to working with it again and trying out the other tips that came with it! What projects have you used a wood burner for?

I'm linking to the parties listed HERE and to:
