Here is the finished pics of undoubtedly the biggest project I`ve taken on. Stone wall (not real stone but peel and stick tiles) and built-ins to replace an electric fireplace and store bought mantel.
Base cabinets are 3/4 birch, pine rail/stile doors – top bookcases are laminated pine panels, pine face frames and ply back. All molding (except for baseboards on bottom of base cabinets) I made from MDF. This was my first attempt at inset doors, face frame cabinets and building a faux stone wall :-). My wife selected a nice off white color for the cabinets that would contrast with the wall and it works really well. I decided to go with dark hardware that would pick up the dark colors from the wall.
All and all, I’m very pleased with the way it looks. Might not be perfect but then again, neither are the $10,000 cabinets that I have in my kitchen that were ‘professionally’ done. Thanks for looking and as usual, I welcome all questions and comments.
