I have the most severe case of misophonia (the literal "hatred of sound") and have caused countless familial fights over chewing too loudly at the dinner table. A few stand outs were the time I taught my 3 year old sister to suck on chips before biting into them (love you @mo_bandit 😂) and demanding @eh.mon leave our apartment at 2am to finish his cereal snacking after a late night shift. . 2. I never ever wear hats (until today?). When I was 6, I went over to my bffs and we decided to go for a bike ride 🚴. Turns out my head was too big for all the helmets in their garage and that was it for me. Scarred. For. Life. . 3. I have always been a HUGE eater. In fact, when my dad met Eamon he said "just make sure she's well fed and you'll be happy" (hangry, much?). Before we board any form of transportation we literally pack an entire meal and then 3 backup sandwiches 🍞🥑🍄. . I'd love to learn something about each of you, so don't be shy... ⬇"

Working all night long... not! We've been a bit lazy lately. But you guys probably know how fast time flies. Especially summertime! But now, as the weather gets cooler, we're back on track again. Still painting and working on our walls. It is quite a mission. 💪🏻 //
Charred wood kitchen makeover 🌲🔥 Our new kitchen makeover was looking pretty sweet now but the worktop was seriously letting it down. Even though we only have 2 weeks til we leave, we got thinking about ways to spruce it up a bit. At first, we were tempted by an easy route of buying a wood-effect work top from a hardware shop. We soon realised how expensive they were and how ridiculous it would be in our eyes, using so much reclaimed wood to then just plonk a big old Wickes worktop on it. We wanted something a little more rustic, so we headed down to a builders yard to see what we could grab for free or cheap. Half an hour of head scratching later we ended up leaving with an old scaffolding plank and a pot of danish oil. Lucy had remembered a really neat technique of charring wood, otherwise known as Shou Sugi Ban. After a quick YouTube lesson in said technique, I whipped out the blowtorch and got stuck straight in, having no idea what the end result would look like. Holding the blowtorch around 5cm from the wood, I slowly charred the cut down planks, before applying several layers of Danish oil. Charring the wood allows the resin inside to come to the surface and creates a fire and waterproof coat, as well as bringing out the wood grain. Along the front and side edges, I charred the wood more intensely to create a faux-bark effect. All in all it took around 3 hours to finish and install in the van, using sikaflex and screws. The Danish oil was applied in 6 hour intervals, and a coat of beeswax and olive oil also helped to seal the wood. #Follow the hashtag #Fromrusttoroadtrip to follow our van conversion project and our travels around Europe! 🌍 #Build#Charredwood#DIY#DIYideas#Howto#Homeiswhereyouparkit#Interior#Kitchen#LDVlife#LDVConvoy#Roadtrip#Summer#Travel#Tinyhome#Tinyhouse#Tinyhouses#Van#Vanlife#Vantravel#Vanlifers#Vanlifeideas#Vanconversion#Vandwelling#Vanderlust#Vaninspiration#Wanderlust#Wood#Woodworking
