Antique Butcher Block in Guest Kitchen

There's a time to keep an antique in its original condition, and there's a time to strip, paint or stain and remake it. "A friend came across an incredible butcher block table at the Round Top Antiques Fair. I felt it was perfect to repurpose as an island for my guest apartment, but the color was all wrong. I had it stripped and re-stained, and I love how it turned out," said Marie Flanigan.
