First off HAPPY NEW YEAR everybody and we hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas! ✌️ but now it is time to crack on with the rest of the build the new year is here and summer approaching fast! To start of this years alternations to the build it was time to rid the van of its awful ply board which was a temporary fixture and replace it with some nice pine t&g
So off to B&Q I went, when I arrived I realised I had forgotten my tape measure so had to go inside to buy a tape measure first before buying the wood 😤 but after that I measured the amount I would need for the van and that was 4 packs to do what I needed to do I picked up some screws and some blades for my jigsaw also.
When I got home it was into the conservatory to cut all the wood because it’s was freezing outside! 🤧 I cut it all inside then went out the the van once it was all cut and started to screw it’s all in after removing the old ply that is!
Fancy! 🤤 once I had all this side done I moved onto the other,
I left the gap there so I can make a door to go over it and have it as a cupboard doesn’t look like the prettiest of jobs mind but it’s functional! 🤨 below you will see the cut wood for the bottom and top of the door and then the finished product.
Like I said not the pretties but functional! Once all this was in it was time for me and sam to test out the paint we are going to use over the wood! Yes we’re actually painting some of the wood for a change 🙄 so here is the tester.
We other decided on the bottom colour which was a mint to be painted all the way around 😍 after choosing our colour I decided to go into the shed and try out an old wood burning texture I’ve used in the past simple to do all that’s required is a blow torch and then I used some oil over the top this is how it looked!
I showed this to Sam and we both agreed to do the worktops like this after all if it looks bad we can just change it out no big deal 🤔 so here it is the process of burning the worktop!
Now I know it doesn’t look amazing in the photos but take my word it looks 100x better in person! 😂😂 I like it anyway at this point I had to stop doing any more because it got very cold outside! Here’s the usual glam shot of the completed work!
Next time we will be painting them up and adding in a few more extras! 😍
