When Christie at Just Beachy wanted to improve the appearance of her standard under-cabinet range hood cover, she took matters into her own hands. As a result of her DIY ingenuity, she now has a lovely chimney-style range hood cover (without giving up any cabinet space!). See how she did it after the jump:By building a new surround over the standard metal range hood, Christie achieved the look of a big, fancy chimney-style cover. However, there are still cabinets above the hood. They're just angled out to create the shape of the hood! With a light blue paint color that sets it apart from the rest of the cabinetry, this looks like a full range hood that reaches all the way to the ceiling!
