Tiny House Furniture










Inspired by Ana White's kitchen island, Mike and I built custom furniture for our tiny house kitchen. We knew that we need furniture that would be mulifunctional and inexpensive.  A counter, two benches, a water cooler stand, and a table {not shown}.  Each piece was made using salvaged 2x4's and 1x3's we had laying around out behind the barn.  The whole project cost us $14 for a premade counter top and $17 for a gallon of stain and paint, all from Restore.  

The counter fits in next to our dry sink, the two benches are tucked into the corner, creating a giant L-shaped seating area around the kitchen table, and the water cooler stand fits right under the stairs. The benches not only serve as seating for meals, but is the depth of a standard couch and gets used as a reading nook, extra sleeping area when cousins come to visit and storage for art supplies, games and work related items.

I really love building furniture.  It's wonderfully satisfying to build just exactly what we need.  Our last and final furniture project will be bunk beds for the boys.  Just as soon as we finish some other projects, though.

  2. that is a beautiful piece. You have done a lovely job and I'm sure you will have many hours of enjoyment from your handiwork. I love the idea of a tiny house. My husband is just over 6 feet tall and the idea of living so small doesn't appeal to him at all. Also, we absolutely love the 2nd floor apartment on the sea where we live. So, I enjoy the tiny house thing in my imagination.

    1. We have very tall men in our house, too. Our house is very small, but very tall. The short end is 10 feet tall with cathedral ceilings, making it feel very open.

  5. I have always loved wooden furniture as they are durable and have endless customization capabilities. Furthermore, they can easily be combined with other pieces to create a completely different and new masterpiece that is totally different from the initial product.
