Reclaimed Lumber Beam + Range Hood

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!
