This vintage cutting board is one of our all-time favorite picks for adding a touch of timeless elegance to your kitchen or pantry. Here are two inspiring ways to style it:

Countertop: Place it flat on your counter and top it with practical essentials like salt & pepper mills, a charming kitchen towel, or even a scented candle for a touch of ambiance.

Backsplash: Lean the board against your backsplash and display cookbooks stacked or leaning, add decorative pinch pots, and a beautiful crock filled with luxurious cooking utensils.

These pieces are functional and give your countertop a layered and elevated look.
