Notes on interior decorating with wood countertops: The perimeter countertops are a walnut with sapwood with level two distressing. The countertops are finished with our Durata® permanent waterproof finish. The distressing on the countertops coincide with the kitchen island cabinetry – also having a distressed look. The end of the kitchen island includes a food preparation area with a 2 ½” thick Walnut butcher block. The walnut butcher block is finished with Grothouse Original Oil™.
