If you have separate chopping boards for meat, veggies, and fruits—distinguish one from the other by painting each with a different color. This makes it easier for you to get the one you need if they are neatly stacked in one corner.

Painting the edges of your boards is another simple update. Choose colors that work well with the colors of your walls. If you have plain white walls in the kitchen, opt for hues like yellow or green to create a refreshing cooking area.

If you have old chopping boards, you may turn them into instant rustic accents. Be creative and experiment with the designs. Consider spelling out words like "eat" or "cook" which you can hang on one side of the wall. You may also showcase your favorite quotes or lyrics.

If you're ready to take things a notch higher, you may consider wood burning. Pyrography, according to sources, is the art of decorating wood with burn marks resulting from the controlled application of a heated object. For a more personalized decor or if you want to give away boards as presents, you may want to consider this art.
Safety first: Make sure you have safety goggles and gloves on when you do this project.
