Finding Amazing Vintage Modern Style At The Thrift Stores Like This Jens Quistgaard Dansk Cheese Board Never Ceases To Amaze Me! Status: Soon To Be Available.
I've read on other bloggers blogs that one should bathe these teak cutting boards in mineral oil...or maybe it's baby oil. Is there a difference? Does this sound right? I certainly don't think soaking it in teak oil would be a good idea, but it could use a little somethin' somethin'.
Finding a beautiful and useful piece of vintage houseware is what hitting the thrifts is all about. That this
is great Danish design is a full on bonus! How do you suppose they got that butcher block pattern to fit
so perfectly in the middle of the tray like that. It's quite fetching however they managed to do it. The
gently sculpted edges aren't to hard on the eyes either. My guess is that they are there to hold crackers
while an expensive and probably stinky cheese occupies the center.
Oh if I could only get rid of those frames around the pics above! It makes a groovy pattern that would
be great as wall paper for an accent wall. I could probably make a single tiled photo in Photoshop or
something but I'm just not that knowledgeable in the art as would be required.
Oh wait, I figured it out. I didn't use Photoshop, I've got another much simpler photo editing suite
called Photo Impression that is much more user friendly and...well, obvious. But it's not nearly as
powerful as Photoshop, but has an easy to use screen capture feature.
And while we're on the subject, I just wanted to let you know that I do very little editing of my pics.
Oh sure, I might have to rotate a pic because I shot it a little off kilter and I might ad a smidge of
brightness, contrast and / or saturation...you know, to even out the color between photos. Or just
make them look half way decent. Honestly, I just don't how to do much else! It's easier to just take
a decent photograph. And it costs nothing to preview and delete a bad shot.
