Long ago when I was a young college student, I used to visit a little gourmet food shop. They sold slices of fresh baked cake, cheese, fresh vegetables, local eggs...and wine.
She displayed the wine on antique shoe racks and I thought that was such a great repurposing of something old and classic.
I liked the idea so much that when we first saw the old root cellar in this house, I thought it would also be great for storing wine.
The horizontal rack is the antique shoe rack. The vertical green rack is actually an antique bread baking cooling rack.
They are both great for storage use.
The recent project for our wine cellar was to paint the door white and replace its screen.
Mike did this in the wee hours so unfortunately I don't have a photo of what the door looked like before.
