  1. Hi Jekka, your tiny house is gorgeous. I love the kitchen cupboards and the storage cupboards above the bed. Please tell me in detail how you achieved the wood panels and what wood did you use as your bench top?

    1. Hello. We had a friend down the road strip their kitchen and gave us their old Tongue and groove wood paneling. It was a a yellow kinda colour as you can see in the before pics and we painted it and shabby chic it. It was super great way of covering any imperfections. We were on a super tight budget so The kitchen bench tops were previously a kids cubby house made from wooden pallets. We pulled it apart (after getting it for free) and then sanded it back, filled the gaps with putty and varnished it. We wanted a tiled splash back but when costing it, it cost far too much so ended up just using more pallet wood. Cheap as chips and turned out beautifully

      1. Wow! I can’t believe it’s all “up cycled”, it has such a professional look about it. Thanks for sharing this. I have been inspired. 😊

      2. Yess. Luckily for us both my husband and myself are fairly creative so can make Beauty from chaos. And I am passionate about sustainability so upcycling fills my heart with joy x

      3. You certainly are creative! Just one other question, I can’t see any nails in the bench top, did you put nails up through the top of the cupboards or did you use a sort of adhesive?

      4. We used screws for the kitchen and then we used a pine coloured putty to put on top of each screw to camouflage. My hubby said you could do it from underneath if you wished but it would be a pain in the neck.

      5. Thanks for that. My partner and I are thinking of building a THOW but are just in the planning stages. I love your little place. I think creativity is key to making your space nice to be in and of course some DIY 😊

      6. Absolutely! It really is what makes it home. I have seen some where it’s really basic and then I feel like it would be like living in a shed and that’s just not us. If you had ANY questions on your journey just shout out 🙂 and all the best with you THOW adventure

      7. Hi Jekka, I was just wondering how to shabby chic wood paneling, like on your kitchen cupboards? I might have a practice this weekend 😊

      8. Hello. I’ve never been too good at following guidelines so my shabby chic job is a very much short cut job. I literally just did 2 undercoats of white, 2 top coats with normal interior paint and ran sand paper over it by hand along the grain. I did it fairly lightly and just naturally some areas will show (like edges of the wood or knots) and just kept sanding until I was happy with it. There are some real YouTube clips showing how to shabby chic too. If you want to have multiple colours come though you can layer with different colour paint and sand each layer slightly. Good luck!

      9. Thanks for that. I had watched some YouTube videos, but I prefer your way where you sand and bits of the edges show. I actually think it gives it a more natural aged look! I’ll give it a go 😊
