DIY Horseshoe Handle Bread Board

This is my third horseshoe project. 
I'm on a roll gallup!
 First the handled tray, then the LUCK 
sign for St. Patrick's Day 
and now a breadboard.
I found three pieces of wood in the garage. 
I am attaching  horseshoes at each end
 to use as a handle.
I cleaned the horseshoes the same way
I did in my previous projects.
I sanded the edges to make the board look
 worn. I gave it several coats of mineral oil. 
(pharmacy section of your grocery store.)
The horseshoes are nailed on.
Another rubdown with my oily rag...Done.
A great little board for serving bread
or use as a cheese appetizer tray.
Here's Tracey, my horseshoe dealer.
We played tennis this morning and she has 
an endless supply from the 
stables where she gives riding lessons.
So, find a stable near you!
my kitchen orchids
(orchid photo thrown in just because)
I'll be making her a breadboard next.

Happy Trails To You!


  1. Loving this board! Horseshoes are some of my favourite things :)

  2. How creative! I love coming to your blog for all your lovely posts, but also listening to "Summer Place", which somehow places me and my mind at the beach and entirely relaxed. Thanks so much for your playlist.


  3. This is so clever! I never tire of seeing what nifty project you are up to. And I am so grateful that you are generous enough to share.

  4. This looks great. I am visiting you via No Minimalist Here. I would love for you to stop by My Dream Canvas. I am hosting a Giveaway for my blog's birthday. Please join in if you like it :)

  5. Rita, this is soooo original!!!!!!!!! Only you can make this. Love this. Puts a smile on my face. Now I shall go and find a local horse place, which should be easy around here... Thank you for sharing this at the 'Time for a party'-linky, at the Fine Craft Guild.

  6. Such a clever idea, if you are into this cool rustic look these are just so perfect...wish I were horse back riding...
