I have a thing for cutting boards, I even got one from Santa when I was a kid. You would think with my whole countertop being one giant cutting board I would steer away from more wood in the kitchen, but nope. I found this pretty little guy a few weeks ago for $1.
It was a great size and I loved the darker/lighter wood stripes. But it did need a little love.
Honestly using someone else's cutting board gave me the heebie jeebies. So first up I bleached it. After it dried I sanded it and got the board cleaned up. With the bleach and sanding I feel a lot better about using it.
I did some research and found that the best thing to use to condition cutting boards is good ole mineral oil. I picked up a bottle for $1 at Target.
