To help control and hide toys, games and other “stuff” we ordered two Barker cabinet sets. Located in Oregon, Barker builds customizable wood cabinets with high quality hardware at reasonable prices. George cut and routed tops for each, which I stained a dark red mahogany, then added three coats of polyurethane.
In order to fit the built-ins snug against the fireplace brick, George had to cut both mantel ends off.
With Thanksgiving and a business trip looming, George put together the cabinets and built the upper shelves. 😉 We found many DIY ideas online, but really liked the simplicity of Cameras & Chaos‘ wall mount plans.
