This is absolutely what I would do to Ree's hood at the Lodge. Have I said that before? Anyway, I would purchase a wooden onlay and have a faux painter match what was done to this medallion. I think it is gorgeous. It would look good with the cabinets and with the stainless steel. This faux treatment is called antique bronze.
I found this carved wood onlay at Osborn Wood. I don't know the exact dimensions of the lodge hood, but this one looks like it might work.
This is a rough mock up of what it could look like.
I'm 44, a wife and a mother to two boys. I try to use humor to keep what little sanity I have left. My humor is mostly at my own expense, although I do like to embarass my large extended family on occasion. I am the seventh of eight siblings. I will share some of the effects my cancer has had on our lives. (Not all bad.)
