This project was something I promised the homeowner after we did the mantle last year. I knew from the beginning I would hate it because it was such a royal pain to fit it in the space and get it installed. I still had fun in the design and execution. There are subtle bevels and angles to complement the mantle and overall I think it came out well. It definitely WAS a giant pain to install though:) No more built ins for me. Free standing furniture from now on!

Maple with stain chosen by client at Sherwin Williams. Don’t even remember the name, but it’s actually pretty nice stuff.

Well, it’s far from a perfect fit, but like they say….Only the creator sees the flaws. Thanks for the comment!
