Posted on Posted in Bastille Metal Works, pewter countertops, Zinc Countertops

Bastille Metal Works recently completed this fabulous pewter kitchen island top near Milwaukee, Wisconsin. What is unique about this piece is that it has rounded corners which creates a soft, elegant look. In addition, the pewter is installed on top of beautiful dark hard-wood cabinetry which creates a stunning combination. The pewter top was cast in one solid piece with no seams and has an sink integrated into the island and also cast in pewter. This creates not only a visually appealing island top but a fully functional top as well.
