That is a VERY pretty cutting board! If I find something like it, I'd want to get it for our trailer!
As per all the good advice advice--the two of you need to both be at least moderately comfortable with any changes...
Have you considered "reverse staining" the wood? That is, you sand it back to take off as much of the old stain as you want, then re-stain it with WHITE stain and buff it back. Seal. It used to be called "pickling" and gives a lovely, light-colored effect, and yet still looks like wood.
We did it to all those nearly black brown doors in our house (from the early 70s) and will probably do it to much of our trailer furniture, since neither darker wood nor paint seem quite right.
Just a thought...YMMV (your mileage may vary).
Best on whatever the two of you decide--again, LOVE that cutting board!
Always good to read all the different ideas! Love your photos.
(And--I think we have the same fabric as your curtains, though we'll be using it on the gaucho couchos when we get to that point.)
