My Kitchen Remodel DIY Butcher Block Countertops

I've been really busy on my kitchen remodel but I'm almost finished. Here are some pictures of my new butcher block cabinets with a thick poly finish. The cost for custom was outrageous so I made my own for a fraction of the cost! So shiny, so easy to care for, and so pretty. You can go to my blog the DIY information at http://pjhdesignsoneofakind.blogspot.com/201...

    Thanks everyone I'm glad you like it. Yes Seth my husband had a few things he thought would look neat embedded in the top but I nixed it. :-)
  • I made a very nice breakfast-bar from wood in a previous home I sold, and this is the product I used - bought it at Michaels - http://michaels.com/EnviroTex-Lite%C2%AE/gc0...

    Do they have a product like EnviroTex for floors that you know of?
  • Peggy H Bivins, TX
    Hi Margery C, I don't know if they have anything like it for floors. I would suggest you check at your local paint store. I do know that an area that large would be difficult to do.
  • Kelly S Bremerton, WA
    Looks like it would work for a crafting counter top as well. Good job!
  • Marg C Middletown, NY
    thank you Peggy. I imagine it would be hard to do but so worth it for me and the three dogs. If I find anything or decide to use enviro Tx lite, I'll let you know the results :)
  • Peggy H Bivins, TX
    Please do Margery C. but their are several different brands to choose from that is just what they had at my paint store.

    Wow what a gorgeous counter Peggy. I never would have thought to use flooring for a kitchen counter.
