Wine Rack to Open Shelf and New Pantry
When I bought my house I knew the kitchen needed a major overhaul, but one thing that really bugged me was this little wine rack that really served no purpose , as it was impossible to find any full size wine bottles that would fit in it. So out it comes.
The dowels that were used for the rack were both glued and screwed into each side, which made for some really nasty holes that were impossible to fill and smooth. Bead board to the rescue.
Bead board was used for all three sides, while a smooth, thin hardboard was used for the top and bottom. With the addition of a shelf and some fancy trim, the useless wine rack becomes a practical, decorative shelf.
As for the new pantry, let me remind you what it looked like before with those, um.. ‘lovely’ plywood doors!
Here is a look at the new pantry doors.
We put a rope trim on the edge of the pantry, that matches the rope trim on the edge of the black island.
We’re making great progress… the range hood will be up this week followed by the finishing trim work . I’m so excited!!
