Butcher Block Makeover
Who knew that classic butcher block countertops could fit in a paint can? Gianni, providers of DIY paint kits for homeowners, has devised a very clever way to achieve the look of butcher block at similarly low cost.
The Gianni Butcher Block Countertop Paint Kit involves a simple three-step application process to transform Formica, laminate, Corian, ceramic tile, cultured marble, and even granite in a day or two.
Users simply prime, tape, and paint, following specific instructions to achieve the tell-tale light and dark stripes and grains of classic butcher block.
The process begins with a specialized primer that hides dings, dents, burns, small scratches, and other imperfections. Then it moves on to a Grain Coat that—with the help of specially textured brushes—approximates the look of natural butcher block. Finally, an acrylic top coat seals the countertop while providing durability and a glossy sheen.
The Gianni Butcher Block Countertop Paint Kit is water-based, low-odor, and low VOC. See Giani to find out more.
