Hello everyone! As I promised, here are the details on how to make the cabinets go all the way to the ceiling. This is the way it looked without the top part:
Since all that part above the cabinets was already an enclosed area (by the walls and ceiling), I decided to build a simple face frame to make it look like open boxes or cabinets up there, where I could showcase decorative items, nothing too heavy.
To put this pieces together I used the Kregg Jig, I do not know how to do this any other way! This Jig is amazing to put two pieces of wood (side by side or perpendicular to each other) together! Like this:
|The face frame was put together off site|
Decorative molding was placed at the front edge to cover the rough edges. At the top crown molding finished it up.
After caulking and priming it was ready for paint.... but I also want to show you how I covered the holes on that cabinet, remember?
then, I put a piece of the tape that's used for the walls to better smooth out those seams. This is not the conventional way to do it but as I said at the time that's the best solution I could think of..
...and so far it has worked well!

By the Way! if you don't have a big enough space to build them up, maybe you want to just cover that area, as I did with my kitchen cabinets here.
