After a lot of research on which wood countertops would work best for our kitchen (Ikea didn’t have butcher block wide and long enough for the peninsula) we found Craft Art and fell for their solid Walnut “homeowner diy“edge style countertops. The photo above is how they look when they arrive (the underside). The DIY part comes in with cutting down to the right size, sanding, and sealing them with a few coats of Waterlox–which will really make the rich walnut color come out.
We are busy working on cutting them down to the right size and installing them right now and will have photos for you on Monday–and hopefully a computer to blog on, too. In the meantime, feel free to follow along on Instagram (@chrislovesjulia) where I’ll keep you in the loop on our progress.
