Before & After Pics Built in bookcases from stained to painted -

14 years ago

Just wanted to share my finished built in rehab. I have included the before pics:

Before a little dated with stained cypress cabinets and fireplace mantel (much more orange than the picture shows):

I was considering ripping the built ins out and the fireplace but, now I am thinking i like it and it is much less expensive to keep it.

I cut out the center of the cabinet doors & put in linen "curtains". Added drop pull hardware. Painted them F&B Cluntch matched by my local BM Store in Satin Impervo. I also painted the mantel with sample pot of Farrow & Ball's Blue Gray and put a white wash over it. I also put stucco patch on the brick around the fireplace and painted it with watered down paint.

What do you guys think? Was a ton of work though.

Let me know if you have any questions. Be happy to answer.
