CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - The 2017 People's Choice - Top Shelf Closet Design Awards goes to Erin Stopczynski of Innovative Spaces / EncoreGarage who received the most likes on Woodworking Network's Facebook page for his project "Copper Blaze Garage."
Customer wanted a clean garage where there was enough cabinet space to house all items. Client requested walls covered floor to ceiling with cedar slatwall for aesthetics and function, with no visible screws. A custom border was integrated into the slatwall, with a change of angle and thickness for visual interest. The floor also had a failing coating which was removed. A new Epoxy & Polyaspartic floor coating was applied. LED lighting over workbench was to be incorporated along with room for an under-cabinet refrigerator in workbench area.
Project was to be completed start to finish in under 7 working days. Border was made utilizing copper blaze material matching the cabinets in 5" wide strips. 3/4" thick copper blaze had a 2" section of 3/8" thick Black TFL inset to add visual interest to border. All slatwall utilized hidden fastener system.
Stopczynski will receive an award plaque and will be featured in the June issue of Closets & Organized Storage magazine along with the 2017 Top Shelf Closet Design category winners.
