Hidden Liquor Storage
Lucianna Samu - Color and Design
February 22, 2013 in Before & After
While renovating our 220 year old farm house I knew needed some storage of glasses and liquor. Who doesn't? I designed this simple simple and efficient system. 6" deep shelves, an old horse stall door, and a barn door hanger, and a good carpenter was all it took. The painting was another project I'll post in the future

Great Before&After!!

I'd bet during a party you could just put a nice table there with glasses, ice bucket etc and use it as a service bar. Very cool ;-)

Thanks guys. Here is a photo of the painted back wall at one point in the process. My contractor was a little nervous when I had it at this stage!

What I love most, besides having a somewhat horsey aesthetic myself, is that your diamond pattern turns into an argyle with the door closed.

Thanks for the idea -- been scheming lately how to lock up our extensive alcohol collection with teens/friends in the house, as it's overrun two kitchen cabinets and after a run of parties lately, can't seem to make it's way off of the kitchen counter. It multiplies every time we entertain, as everyone brings a bottle of something! Plus there's a pony kegerator in the kitchen, and kegs of homebrewing mead adorning the hallway console. I don't have enough stall doors to hide it all -- needs its own barn, perhaps! And believe it or not, other than parties and an occasional bottle of wine on a Saturday night by the fire, we rarely drink.

...(I am halfway through putting in a small wine cellar, which will help with the wine anyway.)

Nice! I did a similar one at my place!...you could put some lights, small recessed, at the diamond back section, at top. I put some ones on mine, ...it really lights the space, and the wine bottles up nice!...

mine is a little one! in a little wall half the size. It used to be an old ice cabinet!... I should take some pictures!...it is from 1924, never used!.. I put 3 glass shelves, in a new wood lining, frame, lights (not expensive!)...
..under cabinets, 20.00 from Home Depot, wine bottles now alight!...)...
