First it was bead board, now it’s butcher block. What direction am I going in exactly with this kitchen of mine?
Well, that’s easy. I’m headed in this direction
First off, let me just admit that I have completely given into my love of cottage design. To be honest, I’m not even sure if it’s called cottage, or shabby chic, or what. All I know if that I’m totally digging slipcovered sofas, wood, burlap (gasp!), etc.. I’ll talk about my “new” style later (if I can pull it off)
Back to the butcher block, I went out to IKEA last week to take a look at the two butcher block I had been seeing circling the blogs.
LAGAN (which is the thinner butcher block)
and NUMERAR (the thicker oak)
Like I said, seeing it in these kitchens made me want to check them out in person so off to IKEA I went!
If you haven’t clicked on the links for the countertops, the price differences are significantly different. For the amount I would need in the LAGAN BB, the total would be $255.26. If I purchased NUMERAR the total would be $447.86. Again, the would type is different and LAGAN is a smidge thinner. Which one would you choose??? Oh and those prices are with shipping.
