If that makes you cry listen to this. I was doing a job in a high end home several years ago, when I walked in I noticed the fireplace mantel and beautiful bookcases/casework on each side was made of beautiful walnut, it was gorgeous. I went about my work installing ceiling mold and other casework in the room. When I came back to set the hardware, they had painted the walnut mantel and casework, I almost fainted.
They were not just bookcases, they were a work of art the way they were built, they were heirloom quality, and they painted them and marbilized the ceiling mold. That was the big thing back then, they said the casework would not look right with the marbilized ceiling mold if it weren't painted.
