Exposed Brick Living Room
The Living Room has exposed brick and crown molding to take advantage of the architecture. We built a faux fireplace, radiator covering cabinet on the right sideand a storage cabinet on the left side, and a mantel with an extra thick 2 1/4" southern yellow pine top and slate surround. The bookshelves are also made of southern yellow pine supported by cast iron pipes. The cabinet door panels are made of metal sheet to allow the radiator ventilation and to allow remote controls to signal the electronics within. The cabinetry has a crackled paint finish to simulate age and time, adding a cozy, lived in effect.
