I'm in the process of redoing my kitchen, so it didn't take long to decide that's where it's going. I cleaned it, sanded it lightly to rough it up a little, and then painted it black. It looked tons better but was still kinda plain so I measured and cut squares of scrapbooking paper then Mod Podged them to the back.
And here is the finished product:
I looove the way it turned out! And it's going to look even better hanging on the wall with a few red pieces I have to display on it (I'm waiting until the kitchen is done before I show that).
