New Trim Work for the Range Hood

range hood makeover with trim and bead-board wallpaper

As I told you, the domino effect continues. 

:)

It all began when I found the corbels for the island. 
I installed them, but not without giving the whole island a new color.

Then, the bar stools that I was using for years didn't really go with the new style the kitchen island sported so, the bar stools got a makeover too.

While in the middle of painting the island I noticed the cabinets a bit more than usual and remembered I wanted to have both of them opened, but they looked like door-less cabinets so, the cabinets got a custom look.

Once I was done with the cabinets top treatment, I gave the range a good look and remembered that the little trim around its front was something I wasn't fond of.

So, I removed it. Good thing I glued those little pieces after painting the range. It was somewhat easy to remove them and there wasn't much damage to the surface.  Anyways, the holes where filled and the whole area was cleaned and sanded very well.

This time I wanted to add the trim in a tapered way, the one before was too square-ish, Some trial and error was necessary.  I didn't want it too slanted.

Once again, the small pieces of trim were glued on with Superglue. And it was ready for the next step...

  2. Hi I am wondering if you've considered papering the inset of your cupboards? I am thinking of doing this myself. You are so very fearless! Love what you've done. Where did the wallpaper come and can you feel the texture?

    1. Thanks Karen! Yes, I did consider papering the inside of the cupboards but thought it would be too much. I also added beadboard to the inside of the kitchen island's shelves. I bought the wallpaper at Amazon, I can feel the texture, the lines. Overall it's a soft paper with a foam-like texture even after painted. I'm editing the post to add a link to this product.
      Thanks for the" fearless" comment, I wish it were true! ;) I think once you begin diy'ing, many of the projects begin to look less intimidating than when you haven't done anything.

  18. I LOVE your kitchen. I don't usually like open cabinets, but yours are an excellent use of space and the small details, like the arch, make me completely love it in this case!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love the redo! Great simple ideas. I have a question regarding the little arch trim pieces you installed at the top of the open cabinets.you had said you don't have a big saw so I figured you must of purchased them precut What are they called, who makes them and where can I get some!!
    PS Thank you so much for including the type of layered trim pieces you used. So many people don't and it is impossible to figure it out from a picture! Well done!

    1. Thanks Julie! I don't have a big saw, but those top pieces on the cabinets were done using a jig saw. You can DIY them. They do need a good sanding after you cut them.

  20. I have a question, where the controls for the fan and lights? Do you have to reach up in the hood? Does that feel awkward?

    1. Hi Heather, Yep, the controls are there under the hood. No, it doesn't feel awkward.

  21. Now that you've had the hood installed for a few years, are you still happy with that model? Getting ready to purchase an insert. I need good exhaust but I don't want a loud one. I've been spoiled by my Bosch dishwasher. So quiet that the new model has a light that shines on the floor to tell you it is running.

    1. Oh Cindi, sorry for the late reply. I've had this insert for over four years now and these are my thoughts: It's loud, especially the highest settings, which I hardly ever use because of that same reason. It does its job and so far it's being working nicely, but if you're looking for quietness this is not your guy.
