Pondering what to do about an interior kitchen passthrough, no door, that leads to a foyer where on the right side only I cannot fit a piece of 1x4 trim because the kitchen cabinets were installed too close to the wall (not my fault!! when the contractor used 12inch block not 10inch block we lost a couple of inches). As usual, the carpenter is the end of the line and deals with the problem at hand.

I have thought of painting a faux trim piece all the way up until I can taper a piece of real trim.

Something needs to go there, I want to put a header on top to match all the other headers.

It's in the kitchen so there couldn't be a more visible spot in the entire house. It has to work. All ideas appreciated.
