DIY Wood Range Hood for our Farmhouse Kitchen

DIY Wood Vent Hood We officially have a range hood for our oven! Our farmhouse kitchen previously had a useless downdraft in our countertop. Because my smoke alarm would go off sometimes when I boiled water I knew we needed a range hood. To save money we DIYed a wood range hood to cover a range hood insert. Our new hood looks so pretty and the white painted really brightens up our former dark kitchen! #venthood #farmhousekitchen #whitekitchen http://lehmanlane.net

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.

Next, we took down the faux beam that ran directly over where our range hood would go.

Although, the beam looked cool it served no purpose (other than cosmetic) and took away from precious ceiling height.  (I will be talking more about our faux beams and ceilings in a future post 🙂  Once the cabinets and beam were down we patched all the holes.

Jason built a wood box with 2 by 4’s to attach the vent hood insert to.  This is the insert we ordered (here).


Using finished plywood and pine boards he covered over the insert and 2 by 4’s.

He finished off the vent hood with the same crown we are using in the rest of the kitchen.

The range hood was primed and painted white to brighten up the space.

I added white subway tile under the range hood to help finish off the area above our stove.

The classic white subway tile makes this space very easy to clean and it looks beautiful too!

A pot filler was added so I wouldn’t have to carry heavy pots of water back to our stove and it is awesome!

Reworking Kitchen Cabinets to get the Kitchen Layout you Want

Reworking Kitchen Cabinets - In order to save money on our kitchen remodel we decided to keep out current kitchen cabinets. Jason and I love the vintage details, pine color and quality craftsmanship of the cabinets in our kitchen but we knew that we wanted the change some of the layout our kitchen as well as make it brighter and feel much for open. So we decided to rearrange and rework our existing kitchen cabinets and here's what we did... http://lehmanlane.net

  1. Tara, it looks absolutely stunning – so bright and open! It’s coming together beautifully and I can’t wait to see the final reveal. You have done an amazing job!

    Looking forward to hearing about the dining room as well sometime 🙂

    1. Thanks Amy!!! We are so excited with how our kitchen is turning out and it is awesome to have at least one wall done! Hoping we will be done before we meet you guys at the lake 🙂

  2. I have a downdraft in my holiday home countertop for so long now, and I have been procrastinating working on it!
    This guide looks great place to start with Tara

  3. With all of the white on he walls and ceiling, I personally would love to see the range hood something other than white – at least below the crown molding. It needs its own personality rather than appearing to be a white appendage to the wall and ceiling.
    Your ceilings are amazing and I agree that while it had to be a huge undertaking to remove the beams and faux wood, the results are beautiful.
    I’ve only followed your blog for a little less than a year, and love what you’ve done both inside and outside your lovely big home.
