A Great Closet Conversion

Barry Southard is a man of many talents. Besides throwing pottery, baking and planting a vineyard (as if that isn’t enough), Barry is pretty handy around the house and converted a very unusual small closet space under the stairs of his house into a beautiful wine cellar that not only preserves his wines, but showcases them in grand style. Not only did he have to work around providing access to crawl spaces leftover from the original closet, he also had to deal with the unusual angles under the stairs. Here’s a few before and after photos of his wine cellar.

Ron Gaffe’s Fabulous Wine Room

Ron’s wife gave him a wonderful birthday gift—a wine room with storage, seating for four and a lockable door. She ordered the racks from IWA and found some terrific old doors at an architectural warehouse. One was cut down the middle for a base for the wine racks and the other placed on higher legs for a counter to open and serve wine. The walls of the room are finished in a copper-toned Venetian plaster, making the room cozy and warm. These photos show that you don’t need to spend a fortune to have a wonderful spot to store and serve wine.
