I can finally share our custom vent hood! As I mentioned, our microwave died about 6 months ago. I knew I didn’t want to replace it with another above stove microwave. I had to sell Tim on the idea of a custom vent hood because let’s be honest, he would be the one doing all the work. I can use a hammer to hang a picture but I don’t really trust myself with power tools and he doesn’t trust me with a paint brush.
We removed the dead microwave and cabinet. Then we purchased this range hood. Tim built a box for it, did the trim work, and added the additional tile (the grout is still wet in the last picture). Sounds so easy but it took a couple of weekends. I just love the way it turned out!
I’m not 100% happy with the items on the shelf. I might be swapping them out. A neighbor suggested hanging the clock in the frame. I would love to hear your ideas!
