What Do You Get......

What do you get.....

                     

                                   when you take this old dirty butcher block....                    



                                                     
                                                                        and clean it up......

                       
                                                         and you remove the rotten legs.....


                and you bring home four of these and clean them up.....


                                     and then the mister figures out how to attach them to the butcher block.....

     
                      and then after the mister filled the cracks you paint them white.....
                                                                 
                                                                                                   


                      and then you paint them black......

                                                      and then grey......

                                                               and then.........
                                                                 
                                                                          geesh!

                                                                             to be continued.....

  10. I'm anxious to see how it comes out! I have a nasty old butcher block in my barn right now. You may inspire me to do something with it. :-)

    Hope all is well.

  15. The circle of people gathering round your butcher waiting to see how it turns out is growing bigger and bigger. We're all straining for a peek at the final version.

    I was wondering why you painted those old legs in the beginning. But, I am sure they will look great once you are through with them.

  16. LOL, I have been there with multiple paint jobs on one item. Sometimes on purpose to get an special look and sometimes because I never like how it kept turning out. I can't wait to see how it works out.

  24. LOVE the replacement legs you chose - a perfect compliment. Looking forward to the final reveal.
    I did a butcher block project many years ago when my kids were small (though didn't have to replace the legs). To protect the block as well as give it back it's "well-used" antique look (removed w/ my "clean-it-up" sanding), I used TUNG Oil on the butcher block's sides. But I used MINERAL OIL (food-safe) on the top because I planned to actually use the chopping block. You can use mineral oil all over, but the Tung Oil gives added protection against water damage (it's used on wooden boats). It's been over 25 years and it still looks great (w/ a regular - monthly, sometimes more frequently - mineral oil rub on the top after cleaning).
