DIY Dollhouse Kitchen Bar

So, how did you like the Dollhouse Pallet Wood Window Valance I shared?

It was just the start... once I made that I couldn't stop! Today I'm sharing the little bar and stools I made along with a couple little accessories to go with them!

The kitchen in my dollhouse is pretty small and I didn't feel like there was room for a full-size table plus chairs so instead, I decided a bar would be a great solution!

Supplies needed for the dollhouse bar:
  • Laminate Counter Sample (you can usually find these for free at Lowe's or Home Depot)
  • E6000 Glue
  • Double-sided Adhesive Tape
  • Wooden Dowel
  • Paint in the color of your choice
  • Scissors

I found a countertop sample in my stuff from when I was picking counters for my kitchen remodel. I thought it would make a cute bar! You could use regular wood too and stain it.

Cut out two pieces with rounded corners and glue them together to form the top for your new bar.

Cut three thin pieces to use as the skirt (two short for the sides and one long for the front) and two pieces of dowel for the chunky legs and glue them all in place.

Paint the legs in the color of your choice. Attach it to the wall in the kitchen with the self-adhesive tape.

So now I needed barstools!

Supplies needed for the dollhouse bar stools
  • Wooden Buttons (you could also use regular buttons or any round piece of wood)
  • Wooden Dowel
  • Glue
  • Fabric Scrap
  • Lace Scrap
  • Heavy Duty Thread
  • Stuffing
  • Paint in the color of your choice

These took me a while to figure out but I finally decided to use wooden buttons.

Cut some pieces of dowel for the legs. Be sure to take the height of your bar into consideration.

My next dilemma was trying to get the legs to stay in place while they dried! I finally put some poster tack around a round wooden piece that was the right size to keep the legs at the proper distance. It was just sticky enough to hold the legs in place until they dried!

They are actually pretty cute like this but I wanted to make a padded seat for mine.

Cut a small piece of fabric and run a gathering stitch around the edge.

Add a piece of stuffing to the center...

And put it over the seat on the stool.

Then add a little bit of lace and voila... two teeny-tiny barstools!

Now I needed to make the little details that are on the bar...

Supplies needed to make the dollhouse water glasses

This is my eyebrow pencil... see the little clear plastic cap?

The end looks like a little cup to me.

Cut the end off the cap with the X-acto knife to the length you want.

For the ice cubes, cut up the hook part of this plastic suction cup or any other piece of clear plastic. You could also use sea salt!

The Glossy Accents will create the water. Just squeeze enough in so it covers the ice cubes and looks like water in the glass. It will dry clear.

Apparently, there's pepper in the water! 😂 That's funny... I can't even see that with my bare eyes until it's blown up with a camera!


Next, I made a bowl full of apples!

Supplies needed to make the wooden bowl & apples

Flip the smaller bowl upside down and glue the larger bowl on top of it, then paint!

The apples are easy to make with polymer clay. I followed THIS YouTube tutorial.
