Maple butcher block table

This item has been soldMaple butcher block tableYou’ve probably seen a million of these tables in your lifetime right? Or owned at least one.  I know I have.  I just wish, before I got rid of mine, I had taken the time to make it look like this! How great would this look in a beach house?! It goes with so many decors.  Beachey, shabby chic, cottage.  This would even look great with some upholstered benches on either side. Or what about a craft room table….a desk….so many possibilities.

When I found this it had that orangey golden tone all over, that polyurethane gets with age.  So it was all stripped down to bare wood.  The top got a driftwood colored stain.  And the base got one of my favorites, ColorPlace, by Sherwin Williams-Quaint Village Green.  I’m not really sure why they call it green because it’s much more of a blue shade.  It totally reminds me of beach glass…watery blue with a tiny hint of green.
