We’re always on the hunt for exciting and adventurous DIY projects that you at home can try for yourself. We were really excited when we came across this particular project, because it’s incredibly easy to accomplish, and it’s something that can really beautify any kitchen space!
In our eyes, there’s nothing that says a kitchen has class and luxury like a range hood cover. While a bare metal hood might signal a certain degree of “professionalism” in the kitchen, a true hood cover can really complete the look of the space, adding a sense of regality.
The homeowners behind “I Love Thompkins”, a blog about DIY projects and home improvement, decided that they wanted to capture this look for their kitchen. And so, they embarked on a weekend DIY adventure to create their own range hood cover. The results, as you’ll soon see, are incredibly awesome, and it’s something you can do yourself!
So read on to check out this incredible home improvement project. And, if you’d like to learn more about the nitty-gritty of doing something like this yourself, then check out this step-by-step guide.
1. Getting Started
The first thing that this homeowner needed was a hood. They just so happened to find this uninspiring model on deep discount for $45!
After getting the hood, the homeowner then installed that in place, with the frame suggesting what is to come.
To be structurally sound, there needed to be braces screwed into the studs in the ceiling. You can see those at the top.
