These are just some suggestions for ya, hope they help. For your counter top, bamboo curtains, like for a door, can be cut and pushed closer together to cover your counter. To get them to stay, simply use a glue gun very lightly just to get them to stick. After they are on there, use a decent amount of shellac to coat. For a flatter surface, you might want to lightly sand it down before shellacing. As for the bamboo, the best way to do this is to take a dremel tool and use the round bit to make a semi deep hole. once the hole is in, u can screw the bamboo with no worries of splitting and the screws will almost be invisible to the eye. To make them even more invisible, simple paint the tips of the screw the color of the bamboo after screwing them in. Hope this helped!
