House Haven Tour: The Wood Grain Cottage

Hello! I’m Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage. <img style="display: block; float: none; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-4827" alt="Shayna | The Wood

I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am to be here today. BIG thanks to Chas for featuring our home on her Haven Home Tour series. What an honor! This is such a wonderful series! Our home is absolutely our haven. We’ve built our home from the ground up and chose every detail along the way. Even with that, we’re in the process of injecting a bit more of our personality and style. We love DIY projects, we love wood grain and we love cottage style- hence, The Wood Grain Cottage. I’m a firm believer that there’s no place like home, so I’ve made it my mission to make our home the happiest place around. It is, after all, our haven and escape from the everyday world. .ENJOY. the tour! The kitchen is most definitely the heart of our home and the place where I spend the most time. <img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-4885" alt="Kitchen | The

Since we love DIY projects and they make our house feel more like our home, here are a few of my favorite projects:

Herringbone side table, which currently resides in the dining room:

DIY stackable fruit crates are a kitchen and pantry staple!

The breakfast nook plank wall and built in bench completely changed the breakfast nook.
