First I have to give credit where credit is due. Mandy at Vintage Revival has a video on her blog explaining how to get the faux butcher block look. Thanks for the inspiration Mandy.
So this finally happened to me...........
I always see blogs posting pictures of awesome furniture pieces that they find in dumpsters or the side of the road for FREE, well this never happens to me. Until now.....yay!!! I snatched up a few pieces of awesome furniture that someone had put out for trash. It's taking me a while to get through the pile and make them beauties so I only have one to share today, but so far I think it's my most fav makeover.
Before....well with only one corner painted, I always forget the before shots.
After getting the bottom all beautiful and crispy clean white, I taped off the top of the table and used 3 different stains to get this "faux butcher block" look.
And it found it's perfect little home right in my dinning room.
Here it is side by side, what a difference, can't believe someone would throw this out. Re-use people.
