The back is covered in scrapbook paper - super easy and fast. I used spray adhesive to glue it to the back panels before assembling it. Once it's assembled the paper is sandwiched between the wood and isn't going anywhere. If I were going to do this again, I would seal the paper with something before putting it together, just in case my little cook gets messy. Wallpaper or even a scrap of fabric would also make a great back splash. Since it's such a small area you really don't need much. Finding a pattern that wasn't too girly was a bit of a challenge. I get very distracted went looking at pretty paper.
Christmas morning! Please excuse the PJs. Grandma gave him some really cute Christmas ones, but he doesn't always wake up wearing what he went to bed in. Who really cares if pants and shirts match at 2 am?
Now it's time to hit the flee market and find some dishes!
