Maybe you have an old kitchen board that looks worn out. Don't toss it, refresh it! Give it a new coat of paint, distress it a little, and transfer a French design to it to give it a little flair.

Make sure your kitchen board is clean and dry.

Sand down any rough spots that may exist, including any old paint. With a paint brush, cover the board in Chalked Ultra Matte paint and let it dry. After you let it fully cure for 24 hours, use sandpaper to distress the paint.

Place your photo face down on the board and apply a generous amount of Photo Transfer Medium to the back of the photo using a hard edge to let out bubbles. Let the product and photo sit for 12 hours to cure. After 12 hours, wet the paper with water until you see the image and using a clean rag, rub in a circular motion to remove the paper backing.

Let it dry, then coat with Chalked Clear Topcoat for protection.
