Howdy ho there and happy Tuesday to you! I’m getting this post up late today because the honest truth is I couldn’t get my booty out of bed this morning. I usually set my alarm for 5:15am on weekdays so I can work and get some things done before the kiddos get up and we have to do the mad dash to get everyone out the door to school. But today I just couldn’t do it. I kept hitting the snooze like a lazy bum. But I’m here now! And today I’m super excited to share our modern farmhouse kitchen hood makeover. This project just wrapped up last week and I’m SMITTEN with it. I can’t wait for you to see how it looks! Here’s how it was before:
And here’s how it looks now with the new kitchen hood:
Quite the change, right?! I’ve been dreaming about this kitchen hood for weeks now and it’s SO cool to see her finished. This is exactly what I envisioned for our kitchen and our contractor did a really great job. The wood part of the hood is actually our hardwood floor. I love it!
The tile behind the microwave stopped about nine inches lower than it needed to be for the kitchen hood, so that was definitely a problem. Thankfully I was able to find our exact backsplash tile on Amazon. I got the last box!
I debated whether or not the hood should run all the way up to the ceiling, but I’m so glad we decided to go for it. Now it’s really the focal point of the kitchen! And the shiplap ties in perfectly with the shiplap in the living room and dining room. It’s simple, but it brings a lot of extra warmth to this kitchen.
This kitchen hood makeover is definitely one of my favorite projects we’ve done in the new house so far. I’ve always wanted a big hood like this and I’m so grateful to finally have one. This place is really starting to feel like home now and I’m feeling so much more settled than I did even a few weeks ago. It’s amazing how putting your personal touch on things can slowly but surely start to create a sense of belonging. I’m loving our little house on the prairie and so grateful for this journey!
Thanks so much for hanging out with me today. Sending big hugs your way!! xo
