White is all the rage these days and it can add beauty to any room in your home. Make sure the master craftsman you use to fabricate your unit is well versed in applying the smooth finish in order to get that lacquered effect. If using white, make sure you get a sample of the paint color because you might think white is white but there are actually quite a lot of variations. Also, make sure to communicate where the “holes” will go in the unit for installation of such things as a TV, plugs and outlets. A custom designed media center, wall unit or entertainment center can add beauty to any room and can be finished with paint, a stain or left natural wood.
We have very resourceful clients!! They like to use reclaimed wood whereby helping the environment and saving money!! So we encourage you to look around, find wood and bring it to us for your next project. But where do you find reclaimed/recycled wood? Here are some suggestions: Houses set for demolition, yard sales, ship yards, on-line, retail locations. If you live in the Baltimore area, try going to Second Chance, located off rt. 295 or one of the Baltimore Ship yards. As for this project, the wood in the backboard was flooring from a historic house being torn down. So get creative with your next wall unit, media center, custom furniture and let’s work together to build something you will have for a life time!
