Description: I needed a countertop for a small cabinet. Ikea had a cheaper version of Butcher block but they were all sold out. While bummingly shopping around my boyfriend spotted out the Vika Amon desktop that was a good length and the perfect width. I decided to take it and cut it to the desired length. Then to make it a little funky, I added a stencil that said YUM and painted the board with a dark walnut color. It’s now completely sealed and looks awesome in my tiny kitchen.
