Dollhouse Miniature Kitchen Cabinets Part 2




I was really hoping to get further in the project this week than I did but life got in the way. I did get the faux wood-grain onto the bottom cabinets and I do love how they look. Since I used card-stock for the wood-grain paper this is a project anyone can do. The cost is pretty minimal and the painting is just a simple dry brush streaking effect. I think it turns out nice especially considering how easy and inexpensive it was.

I did spray my pages of “wood” with a clear gloss sealer but that step is totally optional. We are going to also give the cabinets a coat of satin Mod Podge at the end anyway. I just wanted to seal the paint a little better so just in case I got a bit rough with the paper it would hold up better while I am working on it.



The front cover for the cabinet run is cut the same height was we cut the cabinets fronts, in my case 3” by wide enough to cover the front and fold over at the end(s) by another ½”. The side/end covers are cut 3 ¼” by 1 ¾” (assuming you cut your cabinets the same height and depth as I did)


The cutting sizes for the panels I cut to fit my drawers were:
1” by 1 ½” (this gives a finished drawer front that measures ½” by 1”.

Here is a better look at the drawer fronts as they were trimmed for placement. Remember that the doors are done the same way.




The cutting sizes for the panels for the door fronts were:
2 ” by 1 ½” (this gives a finished door that measures 2 ⅛” by 1”)

Here is the cabinet front with the placement lines drawn for the drawer fronts.
