The Cabin at Wildwood

The Cabin at Wildwood was our ninth home remodel.  We purchased it in June of 2020.  

The cabin is located in Butler, Ohio, just minutes away from Mohican State Park.

We used Behr Ultra White Satin paint from Home Depot straight out of the can (no tint) all throughout the cabin.

  1. Amazing! So glad i found you as we begin our next “project”. You’ve really inspired me and given some focus on where I’d like to take it! What is the green color you used here?

    Thanks again for the inspiration!

  2. I’d love to see more pics of the kitchen. We have an A-frame that we need more inspiration to renovate

  3. Love the color palette you chose for this cabin! So warm and inviting!! What brand and color paint is the green you used throughout the cabin? I love that!!

  4. Well done you! So lovely in every way! Wondering how you transformed your ceiling beams? Did you refinish the originals or replace?

  5. I love this cabin SO MUCH! What wonderful inspiration to keep some of the bones of the old cabin and dark wood but brighten it up with the white shiplap. Beautiful, beautiful home! I could stare at these pictures all day! I was going to jump on and ask the same question as everyone else about the paint. Such a fun pop of color and it flows right into everything else without standing out. Amazing job!

  6. This is simply stunning! Did you use the same satin white on walls and trim? Your choice of green is gorgeous! Did you paint interior door green and exterior doors black?
    I’m wondering how you decided what to paint white vs green vs black because the result is amazing and I’d like to apply your philosophy 🙂

    1. Thank you! Yes, same satin white on walls and trim. Yes, interior doors are green and exterior doors are black. I didn’t really have a philosophy, we just kind of decide as we go:)

  7. Beautiful! We purchased an old cabin and the walls, ceiling and beam are all rough cedar. I’m debating on painting it because I’m afraid it will look unfinished with the rough texture. Was any of the paneling you painted rough?

    1. Thank you. I would say painting a rough texture would be difficult. The surfaces that we’ve painted were fairly smooth.

  8. Hi! I just found your cabin renovation via Pinterest. We have a very similar cabin that are planning to renovate. Did you keep the original ceiling or add any insulation and wood boards to cover that? Our beams are only 2x8s so I know we’ll need to bolster them up and add insulation. I just hate to cover up the beautiful wood ceiling. You did a beautiful job transforming that cabin, keeping some of the original and updating to brighten it up. Thanks!

    1. We kept the original ceiling in the main part of the house, but in the two bedrooms, we added primed and painted pine barn siding in between the beams. It brightened up the bedrooms a great deal!

  9. Seriously, what an amazing job you did! This was the inspiration I’ve been searching for to start our cabin renovation. Did you re-stain your log cabin walls? I have to sand ours down and re-stain them. I’m looking for the color and gloss like yours! Would appreciate if you could share how you did yours? Thank you!

    1. Thank you! We actually didn’t do anything to the existing logs. Wish I could help you on the stain color…

  10. I recently purchased a pine log cabin (at least that’s what I was told) and would love to either paint or drywall some of the interior walls. How did y’all transform the original walls to the white?

    1. Wherever there was existing drywall in the cabin, we replaced it with pine barn siding that we primed and painted a bright white.
