This is one of the best finds I ever had fun with.....and it turned out great! Old mail sorter from the New England area coupled with an old buffet. My wine rack! Added a couple wooden onlays for detail and didn't go overboard with a lot of different colored paints.

Storage in Northern Gold Coast for wines is actually quite common - proper climate controlled units so that the quality of the wine is maintained for as long as you'd like to have the stuff stored. But of course, if you're buying for personal consumption, then perhaps you don't really need to splurge on such facilities... Posted: 10:05 pm on December 14th

The funny thing about the whole project was the reaction we got from the guy I bought the mail sorter from...he said, "I knew I should've charged you more!" Posted: 6:43 pm on December 11th
