First, I used some plain copy paper to fold up a mock counter so I could see how things would fit. I also drew on it to map out location and size of the sink, cabinets and oven. I had to do a lot of thinking on how to make it and after deciding that wood would be far too complicated and take too long, I settled for Kris's way of doing things:
Behold, a counter made out of card stock, foam core board and carpenters glue. I didn't document any of it, because I honestly had no idea how it would turn out. It needs a bit of sanding on the edges and some wood filler to clean up some of the gaps, but I think it turned out great!
I am considering painting it a cottage blue and giving it white hardware and white counters. I also think that the oven needs to be white enamel. The open shelving will be hidden by a curtain-I already have predilled holes for a toothpick or slender dowel. :)
It looks great when it is in the kitchen. I can't wait to fill it with accessories!! Poke the pictures to see them better. :)
What do you think?
