Recycling Old Boards for Home Decor

Here is a great way to recycle old boards into great home decor. You can paint anything any theme you want. Either stand it up or you can hang it on wall.


Materials Needed:

  • boards
  • patterns or stencils
  • spray paint
  • acrylic paint
  • sealer


  1. Spray paint your board and let it dry.
  2. When it is dry, paint on your design using a pattern or stencil.
  3. Let dry completely, then seal.

I love your artwork. My kitchen's theme is chickens and roosters. Can you tell me what specific stencils or patterns you used for the board on the right? Also, how did you make the blue and white background effect, and does any particular kind of spray paint work better? Thanks for sharing these!

Very cute, Sandy! You have a wonderful talent. Have you ever sold your items at craft fairs, I bet they would be big sellers. Love the chickens!
