I'm not really much of a artist so I found some clip art online that I liked and then I used that as a guide to sort of free-hand the design onto the board with pencil. Once I got it the way I liked it, I painted it in with black acrylic craft paint. Then it just sat and sat in my decor closet until we finally painted the kitchen this spring. I was right---it does work perfectly above the sink.
You can even see a sneak peek of the new kitchen color scheme. Reveal coming soon! Until then, here's one more shot of our Maine board birds. :)
