Our Wine Nook

July 18, 2012

The other day I shared the story about this space. You know, the one that started out as a mistake and turned into an opportunity? If you missed that, you can read about that here.
As my idea grew in my mind on how to use this space, so did the stone that surrounded it. 
A nook that was first created using unused space under some stairs that looked like this
and inspired by the champagne that we toasted to when my husband first proposed

Our wine bottles, spirits and special stemware sit on top of built in wood shelves that were painted a creamy white color, and like a fine wine distressed to look aged.

Although it's not really a cellar , it's more like a Wine nook.
And not exactly the Wine Cellar you would see somewhere in the  South of France, but more like a Wine nook you would see South of the state of Carolina. 
I love these kind of opportunities, the one's that will last a lifetime! Don't you?

  1. I knew it! It looks great, Laura! (Just a head's up, though....when your kids get to high school, start counting bottles.) Love this!

  2. Wow! Very clever idea! I love it.


  3. awesome how very very cute i love it enjoy picking you wine

  4. Fantastic! I love it when a plan comes together!

  5. A toast to wine nooks! Or nine wooks, depending on how much of the previous I have had.


  6. I did guess right. Cool. I love it. Would love to have you share it at Wow.

  7. oooh i want that for my house!!

  8. Great wine nook Laura!!...perfect idea for that space and such an special area for that very special memory!

  9. Very cute! Love that great use of unused space and it really has a nice "feel"-enjoy:@)

  10. Can I live in your wine nook? Just throw me an occasional piece of cheese ... maybe a cracker or two and I'll be happy!

  11. Cheers to you and what a super clever idea! Why hide the wine down in some dusty, musty cellar. I like it out in the open where I can grab a bottle without having to battle spiders ...



  12. How cool is that! Would love to know how you painted or transferred the Moet label onto the wood? Cheers, Laura!
