DIY Stove Top Cover
We have gradually been replacing the appliances in our kitchen, but since the stove top still works just fine, it will be the last one to go. However, since it is stained and ugly, it is a major eyesore in our cozy kitchen.
I decided to kill two birds with one stone and built an easy-to-make cover for it that covers the ugliness and creates more counter space. It really comes in handy when we are entertaining. Since our guests end up in the kitchen anyway, I just set the bar up in there. And when we aren't entertaining, it is the perfect disguise for the stove.
Before I had the cover, this is what the area looked like. It's not so bad until you get closer and see how worn the finish on the stove really is.
I bought pine and had it cut at Home Depot and then created a wooden lid based on the measurements of our stove. After it was assembled, I stained it and then added several coats of polyurethane. To see how it is made, please visit our blog:
