Charcuterie Board Re-Use

Yes, we all have what others may deem unhealthy decorating obsessions. For me, I can’t stop buying charcuterie boards. In fact, I was taught how to make them and included the lesson in our October 2011 issue on the Editor DIY page (you can also get the instructions here). So imagine how many I have in the house. It is getting silly.

But I did come across a great image that gave me pause — I could take one or two charcuterie boards out of rotation and use them for a totally different purpose. One of my long boards would be great across the tub for soaps and candles.

The board above has warm wood with rich graining — a great contrast to solid, often white bathroom fixtures. This one gives the tub — the whole bathroom, in fact — a little soul. So that means with two tubs in my house, two charcuterie boards used in bathrooms instead of entertaining, well, that just gives me an excuse to buy two new ones. Don’t judge — I fully admit to my decorating obsession.
