Annsch , I have a question for you
if you don't mind.
What are the materials used for the cove structure around your range?
It looks like the trim and (at least part of) the columns are wood and the front is similar to the walls, if I am not mistaken.
Is it a drywall?
For some reason, I am thinking it was all plywood covered by sheetrock, but I know nothing about this stuff, LOL.
How was the curved part done? Is it something like flexible plywood?
