I love the butcher’s block counter tops and island in our kitchen. However, we are starting to get a little sick of all the wood. We considered changing the counter tops to granite or marble, but we love the unique look the butcher’s blocks give. Se we thought we’d try to convert the island to a marble top. Custom slabs of marble and granite can be expensive, and little out of our league to install. So we opted to cover the existing block top with Instant Granite. We chose the Unatuba Black which contrasts the wood very well. Now, where most kitchens have marble counter tops with a wood island, we have wood counter tops with a marble island, and we love it!
