The range hood has been painted over and would like to to have a copper look- how to?
Hi Pam, The easiest way would be to get a copper coloured spray paint. You would need to tape off the surrounding cabinets if you are not able to remove the hood and then spray it with a good primer and then the copper colour.
Rustoleum makes a metallic aged copper colored paint that is available in a quart can that you could brush on. There are also some other metallic choices.
Whatever you use, make sure it is heat and moisture resistant. The heat from the stove and steam from cooking will affect whatever paint you apply. Don't forget about cleaning, too. Make sure whatever you use is scrubbable, considering most range hoods collect a lot of kitchen grease and dust.
Agreed- you need to be sure you're using high-heat paint. I've used high-heat spray paint in black that worked well, but I haven't seen it in copper. https://www.amazon.com/Rust-Oleum-Available-241232-Enamel-12-Ounce/dp/B001UE7MWO/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=copper+high+heat+paint&qid=1574666432&sr=8-1
