A couple of links to previous threads on this topic.
Is the kitchen cabinet support needed?

Smile Baluster

Believe me, manufacturers don't put something in a trailer unless it is needed.

What you are looking for is the upright part of a stair assembly, called a baluster. I just happened to see some at Home Depot yesterday while looking at something else.

Search Results for*Baluster*at The Home Depot

There does seem to be a large and interesting selection.

Naturally, you are free to go to another store, Lowe's etc. YMMV

Good luck.

I hadn't thought of the closet department as a potential source of a support. That would be a good place to start. I might use wood if I can't find anything else. I want a retro sort of look but I am using brushed nickel hardware.

As far as the counter top, it was pretty straightforward. We used a "blonde wood" plywood from Lowes for about $30. There was enough to do all the doors and the counter. We bought a 4 foot piece of light colored poplar 1x4 and ripped it to 2x1 inches. We cut a 45 on the edges and glued and clamped them on the plywood. Unfortunately the counter is wider at the back so we had to route out (we actually used the table saw) the 2x1 on the back to accommodate the greater width of the fiberglass at the back of the counter. I am getting excited to put the sink and the repainted cook top in and see how it all looks!

Would you please share the paint job info on the fiberglass? It looks great. I have some dents in mine so was going to try to use Bondo, then paint. Thanks!

Getting Closer

Well we got some of the doors hung and we are starting to see what it will look like. I have to do some work on the drawers so they aren't done yet but this gives an idea. I am hoping to put the floor in tomorrow.
