A Hidden Treasure

Marshall and I have been in major project mode lately. I mean seriously it has almost turned into an addiction. The other night I was looking at the our counter top and I realized that there was wood underneath all the nasty dark brown paint that was chipping everywhere! I'm lucky it all worked out cause without thinking I just started scraping the paint off our counter top like a mad woman. I think Marshall was a little concerned, but it was a already a little to late to stop me. He had to leave for work pretty soon after I started, and when he came home eight hours later we had a completely new wood counter top! It took almost the whole eight hours to scrape and clean off all that paint, but it was completely worth it. The best part of the whole things was that it didn't cost us anything! We are just so in love with it , and it just completely opens up our apartment. If any of you are thinking of projects to do my advice would be to just go for it!

(You can't see the chips in these pictures very well, but trust me they were bad!)


  1. They look great! Why would anyone paint butcher block counter tops in the first place?

    1. I know I can't believe that someone painted over them! I am just glad that they are back because I love them so much!

  2. Love it and its always better when it costs nothing.
