Quick and Easy Dollhouse Kitchen Island/Bakery Counter Tutorial
If you want a shelf inside, this is the time to glue it in. I just used a little piece of wood 1" x4 1/4". I used wood glue to put it in. You can use any glue. I placed mine in the middle of the counter, but you can put it anywhere.
Now the fun part! I'm going to use scarpbook supplies to make my counter look more shabby chic. I use this tiny ridge cardboard. If you can't find it you can use regular cardboard from a box. Just rip off one of the paper sides and you'll expose the ridges. And glue onto counter sides and front.
Now we'll paint the corrugated cardboard. Your Paper will warp and bubble a little. This is a good thing. Shabby chic should be perfectly imperfect to look right! My counter will be a light Robin Egg Blue (blue with a touch of green in it). Pick your favorite color though. Notice I haven't covered every bit of the white with the blue. It's a very uneven application. Let dry.
