Remove center stile from upper kitchen cabinet


Ha ha! You've got me pegged! I've been I'm looking for a larger cabinet/hutch for the microwave and toaster over, as you suggested. No luck yet.
Painting the big green monster seems too messy and difficult while hanging on the wall, so I've been dragging my feet on that endeavor. But, I found some peel and stick stainless steel film that I'm considering for the range hood (and maybe the stove/fridge/dishwasher if it looks good and works well). I've not been able to find it in the stores, online only. Two brands are ezfauxdecor and applianceart...take a look online. Seems pretty easy to me. I may order the samples to determine which finish I like as it is available in Polished Stainless Steel, Nickel, or Satin finish. They even sell peel and stick granite for countertops! I'm going to check the blog or create a new one to see if anyone has used this type of product. Thanks for hanging in there with me!

You just keep looking, you'll find it...and when you do,
that will be a real fun piece to do...have you looked at Craig's list?
If you see something on CL you like, don't go alone, for safety reasons.

When I logged on here, I checked 'new posts' and saw your inquiry
about the film. I'm wondering how the film would fair over a hot
stove and oven? I hope you get some feedback on this.

It would seem like a bad idea to use an adhesive film above a source of heat. You do not want to set your kitchen on fire, certainly not just for the look or to avoid the labor to take it down and paint it.

Becuase it's heat resistant from 14-122 degrees Ferinheit, the product info states the film can be used on appliances: dishwashers, fridge, microwave, and ovens (but not the stove top) . My stove has a glass cook top, so I believe the rest of the stove could be covered safely, and the range hood should be safe, too...what do you think?

I donno DIY girl, it looks like it may be difficult to apply on the hood,
as well as just being a temporary fix. I would hate for you to spend a
lot of money, and then several months later it looks bad.

Did you figure out the cost? ...and have you tried to look for SS
paint on line?

Yes...I have two types of SS paint. One is Rustoleum Ultra Cover Metallic silver (goes on with a brush) and Rustoleum Metallic Brilliant Metal finish (spray paint). I like the spray better because it appears to have actual metal flakes. But after drywalling and sanding I'm so tired of all the sanding mess!
Actually saw a few SS range hoods on ebay for under $200...just wonder how much installing one would run, any idea?. Eventually, I'll buy a SS range and fridge, just can't do it all at once.

Well, you have all the electric there already for the old hood,
so, it's just a matter of taking the old one down and installing the new
one. Do you have a friend that can help you?

The SS paint that brushes on is intriguing to me.
The sanding would just be a light sanding with a
sanding sponge to rough it up a tad to aid the
paint in sticking. Then vacuum it down and wipe
it clean.
The SS brush on paint would be the first thing I would try.

DIYgirl...this is the cabinets my sister rustled together for
the apartment on her house. She bought generic cabs from
Home Depot...then for the eating area she bought all upper
cabinets.
The two singles on top (standard 13" cabs) were cut down
to 8" deep.. The bottom cabs are also -- two double standard 13" deep
top cabs that they bought
legs for -- and installed them as bottom cabs. It's a small area so she
couldn't use the standard 24" deep bottom cabs.

To sum it up -- the top two cabs are 13" deep top cabs, cut down
to 8" deep, and the two double cabs on the bottom are top cabs
installed as -- is on top of legs...Then head knot cut the 8" cabs down,
however, my niece made the countertop with glass tiles and
installed the bottom cabs after she attached the legs.


She saved a lot of money by not ordering special order cabs.
