Wine Cellar For A Fella(r)



My client's foyer was definitely lacking some color, interest and well even some love.


The mini hall closet door under the stair case was a total eyesore and though my client isn't a big wine drinker he loved the idea of having it turned into a conversation piece if nothing else...A wine cellar with presence.



We lost the door and to play off on all the other arches already in the foyer, decided to add an arch to this new cellar as well.



We had the wine cellar insert custom made obviously to the closet, so you can easily pull it all the way out to store wines on either side as well.


Anyway, it lights up beautifully at night, but of course I haven't ever been to my clients at night WITH my camera so you will just have to trust me.



with flash, faux doesn't look as good up close and with bright lights...

It's normal look....

Sooo my client LOVES showing it off, but I am not sure if he is into wine anymore than before.....


I think it made a BIG difference though to the foyer don't you?  Oh and of course some new floors, and paint helped. ;)

It DID make a huge difference to the foyer! I love how it looks, and I'd be showing it off to everyone, too. Great job.

This is an amazing way to make use of an otherwise unused area. So many of us have this space but have never considered how we could take advantage of it.

I'll share this on my Facebook page.
