I love a good repurposing project!
I love when you take something and combine it with
something else unexpected and boom!
That is exactly what Tammy did with a recycled
Knife Caddy. You won’t believe this little
Farmhouse-Style project she has come up with.
Repurposed Cutting Knife Block Kitchen Caddy
Hi I’m Tammy from One More Time Events and I have the pleasure
of being here at The Everyday Home to bring you a fun craft that
is not only useful, but hides the look of an ordinary cutting knife
block, and can be used as a recipe holder, also. I would like to share
how I repurposed a cutting knife block into a farmhouse caddy
with a couple of cutting boards ,wooden rulers and
a cute chalkboard label.
Here is what you will need:
Wooden cutting knife block set:
(13) 6″ wooden rulers sections
* optional White paint
Here is what the knife block looked like before it was repurposed.
It has been repainted a few times, and the last time it was
refinished it was painted to look like worn rusted wood.
If you are interested in how this was done
you can see what technique I used to add a faux rust.
I decided to keep the painted finish on the knife block and built
around it with the rulers, starting with the front of the knife set,
placing and gluing the rulers starting from the left and leaving the
rest of the rulers hanging over the right side of the cutting block.
You will see why further down.
Tip: When placing and adhering the rulers, place the top and
bottom rulers first, this way it makes centering the middle
To finish the caddy a chalkboard label with clothes pin is attached
to the front cutting board, this can hold recipe cards and the
bottom part of the crate can hold a tablet/ipad or another
cutting board like the ones used for this caddy.
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did creating and sharing
it with you all.
