I can not believe it has been 4 years since Mr. Front Porch and I tackled our kitchen makeover project in our previous home. Our French Farmhouse kitchen makeover is one my top blog posts ever! I look back on it even now and can not believe the transformation. It makes me just as happy that the new owners love it as much as we did.
|With a flat head screw driver and a little tapping the trim work popped right off.|
|After we removed the nails we went thru and trimmed off the layers of paint where the trim work had been so that we could have a flat service to work with. This we did just with the flat head screwdriver.|
|We placed the range hood front back on and this is how it looked. Note I had already added some wrought iron brackets underneath.|
|Here is where my favorite wood comes into play. I used these Poplar pieces at our previous home when I designed the custom wainscoting in the dining room and then one of our hallways. It is a bit pricey but the quality is great plus minimal cutting!|
|Overall the process went fairly quickly. The most time consuming part was the fact that we had to measure and cut and then install before we could move on the the next piece.|
|I used painters tape to help hold the pieces in the back in place. The nail gun would not fit in that tight space so I used a bit more glue to help it out.|
|Next up came these 12 ft barnwood tongue and groove planks from Home Depot.|
|We used the planks to create the bottom piece of the range hood. Today I will be taking the tape down so that I can start priming and painting the range hood. I can not wait to see how it looks! Even like this I walk in the kitchen and it makes me smile!|
Be sure to check back for the reveal plus some other projects that I have been working on these past few weeks. P.s. Ya see that island. It will be getting a make over as well!
