Bread Boards

I have a crush on vintage bread boards...with lots of character and years to them....

I have been wanting to start a collection. There are tons on ETSY for sale but the price tags are often high. After seeing a collection for sale on Antique Farmhouse (one of my favorite sites, by the way) for around $120, I decided that we could make something similar for free.

We pulled out some old wood that we picked up from Second Chance. It had knots, color variations, and character.

I drew a pattern free hand on some poster board for Jimmy to follow.
 
And he cut them out in a few minutes....

Here is the beginning of my collection. They may not be "authentic" vintage bread boards but they play the part for now...


Now I am trying to decide if I want to stain them or leave them bare....what do you think?? I'm thinking they need some dark walnut stain!
