A few days ago, I was complaining that our kitchen looks “too new”
+ that a nice box beam made from old lumber would be just the ticket.
Not long after I started searching for said lumber,
our neighbors down the alley began tearing down their old garage!
How fortunate for us, no?
Here’s G.O. sorting through the pile o’ wood:
Next, we loaded our boards into G.O.’s Ranchero:
And back home:
Yes, our new/old boards will make a fantastic box beam
between our kitchen + dining room:
But wait. There’s more!
We’re going to need a range hood for over our new range!
As often happens, my mind started racing toward a new project,
+ it wasn’t much later that I was searching Pinterest
for photos of wood range hoods!
G.O. wasn’t on board at first,
as he thought maybe a wood range hood would be too “rustic”.
I feel his pain, but all these kitchens look kind of like ours,
meaning it would look just fine!
While searching for old wood range hoods,
I found this metal one that I couldn’t love more!
But I digress, just a bit.
Back to my range hood hopes + dreams.
I’ll think + plan + sketch like crazy, so stay tuned!
