Recently finished up a cabinet build for a client for their mudroom. It included 4 locker cabinets, with 4 base cabinets and a bench top, as well as upper cabinets and a large pantry with 4 drawers. The cabinet doors and face frames were made from poplar and the cabinet carcasses all from birch plywood. All of the cabinet doors were equipped with 1/2 inch overlay soft close hinges and the 4 drawers were installed with 22 inch side mounted soft close drawer slides.
The clients were looking for white painted cabinetry with a stained wooden bench top and as many upper cabinets that could fit into that space. They also wanted locker space with coat hooks and a pantry all painted white inside and out. The paint we chose to use for this project was Benjamin Moore Advanced.
The build went as planned and we really enjoyed sending pictures of the progress to our clients as they were very excited to see how it was coming along. The really cool aspect to working with clients on a design is that they can see their ideas come to life - not only with the finished product, but also during the build phases.
Here are a few pictures of the design and build:
After the build phase we started in on the finishing - hours spent sanding and shaping the doors and prepping for paint. The paint process started with 2 coats of Zinsser Bin Primer and then 2 coats of the BM Advanced. The paint process took somewhat longer than expect due to dry times and the nice subzero temperatures that arrived in Iowa that week. Here are a few more snapshots of that paint process:
It was then time for final assembly, delivery, and installation. Our clients were very excited to see the finished product installed in their home.
Besides the snow storm that came the night before, delivery was somewhat tricky, but installation went pretty smoothly. For that tight of space and the amount of cabinets to be installed, everything fit perfectly. Overall this project was challenging but fun to complete and our clients were very happy with the finished product!
