DIY Wood Range Hood for Our Farmhouse Kitchen

5 Materials
3 Days

To save money we DIYed a simple wood range hood cover for our farmhouse kitchen. Our new white range hood with white subway tile back splash looks beautiful & brightens up our former dark kitchen!

Taking Down The Upper Kitchen Cabinets

A lot needed to happen in our kitchen before we could add this wood range hood. The first thing we did was take down all the upper cabinets on our oven wall. We also took down the faux beam on our kitchen ceiling & added beautiful white bead board in it's place.

Building a box for the vent hood insert.

Jason, my husband built a wood box to go above our kitchen stove with 2 by 4's to attach the vent hood insert to.

Covering the wood vent hood box with finished wood

Using finished plywood & pine boards we covered over the insert & 2 by 4's. We finished off the vent hood with the same crown we are using in the rest of the kitchen.

Priming & Painting our Wood Vent Hood

The range hood was primed and painted white to brighten up the space. We finished off our wood range hood cover with some white subway tile underneath along with a pot filler. Our Wood Range Hood cover looks fabulous in our newly remodeled farmhouse kitchen.
