Give Your Kitchen A Log Cabin Feel With Just $20 Worth Of Materials

When Sammy and Sufi of The Cozy Home Chronicles were hunting for inspiration in IKEA one day, they stumbled upon a wooden accent wall displaying dishes. With a need for a new backsplash, they took the idea home and started to make it their own.

In all, they spent less than $20 and an hour on their adorable log cabin-inspired upgrade to their kitchen — check it out!

You’ll want to generously spray the wood with a sealant to protect it from rotting. You can even use a wax or stain to achieve a darker look.
