Has anyone painted this trim?

This is a photo of the trim between the countertop and the doors below the sink. Has anyone ever painted this strip between the metal? Can you please share how you did, what you used, etc. Thanks.

That trim is easy to remove and replace. I would not paint it.

Two possible solutions:

1. Cut thin strips of countertop laminate (formica) and push it into the channel. However, this requires end access from one end or the other as the laminate is stiff.

2. Go to a shop which sells vertical venetian blinds and buy some slat material in a color/pattern/texture you like. Cut the slats down to the right width and simply bow them to slip into the slot you have. This is the technique I use most with these channels and it works very very well.

As idroba said, that piece will slide right out of the aluminum extrusion. You can then replace it with a piece of laminate (or any other flexible material) that better suits your tastes.

agreed

Yes, take the oven out, 4 screws and the lp line disconnect, and it should slide out with some care. If you get it out in one nice piece I would LOVE to buy it from you (woodgrain insert that is) John

Seems like a lot of work for one piece of woodgrain insert. Think I may keep it!
