This series of images is of a house built by Steve Sears Building Co. It is located in North Broadripple in Indianapolis. The first Images are of some taller Wainscoting and Built In Bookcases that I built in pine. Also note the beams that help to section off the room. The homeowner wanted a 'Rustic' feel for this portion of the house and thus, pine was chosen. I've included the pre-stain images as well to show what the raw product looked like. For me, stain can make or break how a project turns out. The grain here is a little bit on the busy side for me, but it certainly has that 'Rustic' feel.
The last image is of the Built ins and the mantle in the Family Room. Painted woodwork seems to be more in vogue right now. It certainly has that 'Classic' feel.
