Props to reader Anna for sending this tip: She used adhesive auto body trim to create the look of chrome edging on her vintage counter. She told me that she bought the trim, which came on a roll, quite inexpensively. After three years installed, it’s still going strong, she said. “We used 2 inch chrome edge molding. It’s like padded vinyl with sticky tape on one side,” she said. Sizes range from 1/4 inch to 2 inches.
Anna shared a few sources to try:
- Cowles Products
- Amazon (affiliate link)
- Auto Zone
- And another product is Trim-gard 99gt0101, she said.
I also saw some on ebay, body molding trim’ on ebay.
