I designed and cut all of the pieces to make the doors and
my husband put them together and attached them to the cabinets.
We used hammered black metal hinges and door handles.
We also made small swivel pieces out of barnwood to keep the doors closed.
I'll move right along, so that I can show you a finished picture.
We built the countertops out of 1x10 pieces of pine that were glued together edge to edge.
We also added a piece of 1x2 pine along the front edge of the counters.
There is a 1x6 pine board functioning as a small backsplash on top of the counter.
All of this pine was stained and coated with numerous layers of protection.
(we've lived in the cabin for 3 years now and the counters are holding up great)
We decided to add a beadboard backsplash and paint it red.
The backsplash goes about 3/4 of the way up the wall,
which allowed for some of the logs to still be exposed in the kitchen.
Above the beadboard is a pine shelf that is 12" deep
and it is supported by hammered black metal shelf brackets.
The outlet covers are black metal and the faucet is brushed nickel.
We went with white appliances.
There is a double sink, a small stove with an oven
and a 15 cubic foot fridge in this tiny cabin kitchen.
We built a closet around the fridge out of barnwood.
It closes it in on all sides except the front.
There is a large shelf area above the fridge, under the stairs.
We have since added a microwave on top of the fridge.
It's small, it has challenges sometimes, but it works for us!
I've done some creative food storage and organization,
but we'll get to that after the full construction of the cabin is chronicled.
Make sure you keep checking back to see how we make it work.
I'll give you a little hint - mason jars.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my beloved barnwood cabinets.
