DIY Wine Cupboard

On foot one day, heading toward a local grocery market, I found an abandoned jewelry chest leaning against a tree. It was surrounded by various other yard-sale style free items. I grabbed the case and took it with me. When I got home I noticed it held a bottle of wine perfectly. A rarely have more than a bottle or two in the house at once (I always fail to stock up) and thought I could make a nice cupboard for the wine and all accessories. (I've acquired wine stoppers, etc.) After taping over the door and removing a panel of stained fabric it was ready to go.

Next, I rummaged for paint. I always have a fair amount of black spray paint in the garage.

All pieces were painted on the lawn, including the little drawers.

All dry, I added a piece of scrapbooking paper where the fabric used to be. It now happily holds my latest bottle of wine (chocolate wine...mmmm) and additional stoppers. I think it's cute and will add a fun element to my kitchen counter.
