Here’s some fun news–Craft Art Countertops contacted us last month and asked if our readers would be interested in a secret sale! We have used their butcher block countertops in so many spaces that we have renovated over the past 6 years and we always get a ton of questions about our kitchen island countertop, where we used plank-style black walnut DIY countertops from Craft Art. They are offering our readers 20% off any of their countertops (they have a bunch!) with code CLJ through July 31st right here.
We used the same plank-style black walnut in our laundry room and extended it up the backsplash and I am obsessed with the warmth it adds to the room. A few coats of waterlox and we haven’t had to do another thing to it!
You may remember we used a light butcher block in the Pittsburgh kitchen–also from Craft Art. Here we used the White Oak Plank Style. In the photo below, they were not sealed, and have darkened a bit since applying the sealer.
We even used Craft Art finger-joint countertops waaaayyyyyyyy back in our first home’s kitchen!
The great thing about butcher block is it can be made to look new time after time after time if you want it to. Or, you can embrace the patina that comes with life. We actually choose not to cut directly on ours, but love to use it to roll out dough. Recently we refinished our island (after 2 years) because one of the girls’ spilled some super glue on it. (You can read more about that process here…the refinishing, not the super glue.)
And it looked like new again.
If you have a project coming up, I hope you’ll take advantage of the 20% off! Just use code CLJ at checkout here before July 31st. Besides kitchens and laundry rooms, I’ve seen their product used on desktops, dining tables, bathrooms, and shelving!
