My customer had seen a kitchen peninsula wrapped at a friend’s house and asked me to do it at their house. 

We discussed different options and they gave me a picture they’d found on Pinterest. So, I started getting together ideas. 

I bought some 1″ x 4″ and stained them with black stained and put polyurethane on them to make sure they were durable. 

I started with the install. The end of the pony wall was covered in sheetrock. When I took it off the end of the wasn’t even with the return. I also had to deal with three outlets and the return for the heating system. 

I cut the metal with a combination of tin snips and a metal blade on my circular saw, and then attached the metal to the wall with Liquid Nails. I finished things off with black caulk to give it a clean look. 

This was my first time doing something like this. I’m hoping to build a pergola next summer with a corrugated metal roof next summer so this was good practice.
