When I returned home from church on Sunday, I walked into my kitchen and was excited to see that my husband had done this (minus the peeling of the wall)
I was thinking that I would probably have to get my father in law to come help me with this project because it is very rare that my husband shows interest in DIY. But little did I know. Once I was settled in, he ran out to Home Depot to grab this
I must admit, I was a little hesitant of him pulling this off. And when he said “Oh babe, I ‘m going to cut the countertop down here in the family room”, I just about exploded. But I had to remind myself that he was FINALLY pitching in on a project so if cutting a big chunk of wood in the HOUSE was going to get it done, by all means, just DO IT.
I know you didn’t think I was playing, right? *insert eye roll*
But it went better than I thought it would (minus the noise) and the butcher block fit perfectly now
Because it was getting late in the day, I had to put off moving forward with the project which brings me to today. I’m going to start patching the wall and then I’m going to condition and stain the wood.
Can you believe I’ve never used stain before? I can’t wait to get to that part!
Sorry for the instagram pics. My camera need new batteries and I’m too lazy to go buy some.
And before I forget, guess whose going to school in August?!
Yep, he was the 9th name called yesterday. I was over the moon!!!
And thanks for all of your comments yesterday and the night before. I really appreciate it. A LOT. I think I’m close to a decision. I’ll definitely keep you posted!
