These are some built-in cabinets and a mantel that I did in a house I just finished trimming. These pics are from before the stone is on the fireplace. Hopefully in a couple weeks I will have professional shots of this entire house by John from Coastline Studios.
It looks so much more grand with the stone, its probably my favorite projects so far!

The cabinets are Maple plywood with poplar face frames and doors. The mantel is poplar also. They are sprayed with Graham Aquaborn Ceramic, factory black. Rolly, our painter, then freehanded the copper “distressing” accents.

That accent detail is freehand? I am impressed. Hope to see it after the stone install.

Nice and tight joints, I’m having a whole new level of appreciation for painted cabinets now. Tell Rolly, you guys do great work.

Awesome job. I can’t imagine anyone not loving the work that was done here.

Great looking.
