Lisa and Richard's project was a custom creation, merging new materials with vintage doors and hardware. The final coat of paint truly unified the piece. A beautiful finish was imperative in the completion of the project. Just a day before the party, Lisa was able to fill it with her favorite accents and Christmas décor, but it truly seemed like the finished piece has been in service for years.
