I'm like no......wait a minute......stop! Wasn't sure he knew how I wanted it to look plus I hadn't taken any good before shots. Geesh, doesn't he know by now that if you live with a blogger you always ask if you are ready for them to work on a project?
Here is a before shot taken with my phone. This butcher block is off a ship and it was quite nasty and when Mr. Savvy was sanding it he said it smelled like fish. Eewwww, we don't want that.
What a difference a bunch of sanding makes.
This is the belt sander he used.
This is a progress picture I was able to snap before he got any further along. You can see how many deep cut marks were in this. He kept grinding them down and now it is smooth as butta.
Thank goodness I got home before he sanded off the stamp and sticker. I told him I wanted those left on. He just rolled his eyes.
I can't wait to get some butcher block oil and see how the color comes out.
You can see how the legs have not been touched yet. We were just going to level the legs and add castors, but now we have another idea and I hope it works. If you follow me on facebook and instagram I gave a peek at what is going to be used.
Looking forward to seeing this finished.
I hope y'all will join me and 24 other bloggers starting Monday for our Thankful at Home tour.
