As I was perusing Instagram I came across a beautiful kitchen designed by HGTV’s Joanna Gaines (which looked very similar to our kitchen!).
I loved the wood awning that she incorporated above the window. I asked Kevin if he would build me something like that for our kitchen, because our windows look naked! He agreed and built me them in 1 day! I’m always impressed with his can-do attitude and his ability to get it things done so quickly.
Before he began, I wanted to do a little tweaking to the original inspiration. Instead of having the raw wood look, I wanted it to have more detailed moldings, like the rest of our house. Kind of like this range hood here:
Now I need to decide what color to paint them. I’m thinking of a rubbed dark gray so that the wood grain is still visible. What do you think? I also want to install a pull down shade underneath for privacy. Pictures of that project to come!
