Cabin Progress

November 18, 2015

So far so good.

For the most part (knock on wood) the cabin bathroom renovation has gone smoothly. We laid a sheet vinyl floor from menards in a simple beige/light grey grasscloth pattern. Then we continued the wood planking for the walls to match the rest of the cabin.

I custom built the vanity from construction lumber to save us some money, and ordered the vessel sink and faucet on Amazon (WAY cheaper than what was available at Home Depot.) The wood cost under $30.

Here is what is looks like in place! I stained it with this stain and I definitely need to coat the top of it with polyurethane, since it is wood and will be exposed a lot of water.

My other big project was creating an accent wall behind the toilet. I took old pallets and stained them several different colors. I then just cut them down to size and tacked them up in a random order behind the toilet. Viola! I love it – there was just too much pine going on- plus I re-used the stain color of the vanity to tie it in. Oh, and I bought a couple of raw pine shelves from home depot for 7$ each and stained them to match the vanity too.



I also bought this mirror to go above the vanity.  mirror

Building a kitchen island. I took a small chunk of cabinet that was sitting awkwardly in the loft and decided to turn it into a multifunctional kitchen island with stools. There is a big empty space in the kitchen, and I want to create a place for people to gather, a place to prep food, and a place to sit down and eat. Here is an in progress photo. I painted the base white and added the stained pallet leftovers to the back side to cover up an unfinished back and add some visual interest. This will be visible right when you walk into the cabin, so I wanted it to look fun and funky.
