How to Hang Wreath on Kitchen Hood

The kitchen is often the most used room at home, this is where you have your breakfast, lunch and dinner. The kitchen is one of the places where you may have guests round for a meal or just to say hello. Hanging up a wreath on your kitchen hood is a great way to show that you are an environmental type of person. A kitchen hood could be a very peculiar thing to decorate or add holiday cheer to.

The idea of putting up a wreath on your kitchen hood may sound a bit strange at first but trust me, it’s going to look awesome. And it is spectacularly easy to do. Hanging wreaths on the wall have been a tradition that has passed down throughout generations with each family creating their own signature look. Creating a home décor item to hang on the wall is something that both women and men can do.

Measure and mark the wall

  • Measure and mark the wall at the exact height of the island. Use a construction level to ensure that the marks are level.
  • Use a stud finder to locate the studs in the wall. Mark their centers by tapping on the drywall with your knuckles; you’ll hear a duller sound when you reach the studs.
  •  Lay out your lag bolts by laying them out across a 2×6 and using a tape measure to space them 1-1/2 inches apart, if you’re using 1/4 x 4-inch lag bolts.
  • Clamp down one of your 2×6 boards on top of your island, lining up its edge with one of your chalk lines.
  • Mark where each lag bolt will go through the 2×6 and into the bottom edge of the island with a pencil.
  • Drill pilot holes for each bolt, then drive in your lag bolts from underneath so that they penetrate all three pieces of wood: 2×6, island, and wall. Repeat this process for each board until all four corners are secure.

Locate the wall studs

  • The easiest way to attach an island is to use lag bolts. You can also use toggle bolts, but they are more difficult to install and make it harder to adjust the position of the island once it is attached.
  •  Locate the wall studs behind either side of the island and mark their locations.
  •  Use a level to draw a line across the marks so that you know where the top of the island will be when it is installed.
  • Attach a 2×6 block to each side of the cabinet with glue and screws.
  • Position one of these blocks right at the back edge of the cabinet and the other an inch or two in front of that block.
  •  Drill holes through the blocks and into each side of the cabinet so that you have somewhere to screw them from inside.
  • Drill pilot holes for your lag bolts at each point where a stud is located on either side of your mark.
  • Install washers over each bolt and run them through your pilot holes so that they come out through your blocks on either side of your island’s cabinet.
  • Place nuts onto each.

Measure and mark for each vertical support bracket

  • When you’re building a wall-mounted kitchen island, you’ll need to build a series of brackets to support the weight above each leg. If your studs are centered over the legs, the vertical supports will be perfectly spaced to support the island’s weight.
  • Measure and mark for each vertical support bracket. Make sure that each vertical support bracket is centered over a stud and directly under your island’s weight-bearing supports top or bottom panels that extend over its legs.

Drill holes through each stud at each bracket location

  • You can modify a basic kitchen island to serve as a support for your countertop. The island will add stability to your countertop and provide additional storage in the kitchen.
  • You can build an island support from an existing kitchen island or build one from scratch. In either case, you will need to mount the legs of the support securely to the floor so it doesn’t slide around when people work at the countertop.
  • Drill holes through each stud at each bracket location, using a drill bit that is smaller than the screws you’ll use to fasten the brackets to the wall.
  • Attach the support brackets to the wall by driving long screws into the drilled holes using an electric screwdriver or drill.

Mark for openings on each vertical support bracket

  • At the top, mark for openings that will accommodate one bolt to attach each bracket to the ceiling.At the bottom, mark for another opening that will accommodate a bolt that will secure the bracket to your island’s legs.
  • Drill out the holes using a drill bit (the size of which should be determined by your hardware) and countersink where necessary. At this point, it might be necessary to sand down any splinters or burrs as well.
  • Painting or staining is optional but recommended, as it will help protect your brackets and make them more visually appealing.
  • Once you’ve allowed for proper drying time, you’re ready to attach them to your island legs You’ll need a wrench or adjustable wrench, depending on whether you’ve used nuts or wing nuts in order to secure your bolts.Now, you’re ready to install your supports.
