My Lindy's Butcher Block Table

I recently got the idea to make the ugly top of my butcher block island into something more appealing to the eye with my Lindy's Stamp Gang products and went to town with all 3 different liquid mediums....the Starburst Stains, Moon Shadow Mists and the Glitz Spritz sprays. I had a lot of fun and after letting the last two coats dry, I used Black Archival Ink to stamp various Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous Stamps onto the surface of the table so that the images would not bleed. I think that the outcome was really neat and wanted to share with you!  =)

This was just a normal butcher block island that I bought from IKEA several years ago. I use it to put my Vagabond and Cuttlebug on and it has two shelves underneath it that I use to store my TH Alterations Dies and all of my Nestabilities, as well as a basket that has cd cases that hold my acrylic stamps. It also has two small drawers that I use to store photo paper in one and various small TH Movers and Shaper's Dies and a few tins of Cavallini & Co. stickers, which I ADORE.  :)

Above is the video of the process of decorating the Butcher Block table from my YT Channel, LaceAndMetal. Thanks for watching! I hope you enjoy it and that it inspires you to do something creative!  =)
