|this and that|
Dark stained butcher block, beautiful isn't it? And when Zach and I realized that butcher block counters would be cheaper than laminate, we were sold. We like that it's a natural material and more diy friendly than laminate, which has to be custom ordered. We've also got plans to give our cabinet fronts a face lift.
Here's the plan:

Along with the butcher block counters, we'll be putting in a white apron front sink and subway tile back splash. The first step is staining and sealing the counters, which between drying and curing time will take at least two weeks. We want to make sure the butcher block's ready to install before we remove the existing counter tops and sink, since we're not fans of doing our dishes in the bathroom.
