I’m super excited to share this repurpose with you. Originally, this piece was a vintage tv cabinet. I forgot to get pictures before my husband removed the beast of a tv from the inside, but I did snap a few pictures of it after he finished removing the innards. He is a saint for helping me on this! Here she is in her “mostly” before state.
Her before state is pretty sad, but I saw potential. Call me crazy! I loved her folding doors, her shape and I even loved the pulls. I’m sure many of you have seen numerous repurposed tv cabinets. But have you ever seen one repurposed into a true wine rack? Please meet ‘Ophelia’…
Ophelia will hold about 17 bottles of wine (don’t drink them all at once) and has a nice amount of storage on the left side. I love that you can close her off or open her up all the way. The doors fold back to the sides, perfectly. Ophelia is done in a custom color I call ‘fig’. The color is rich and luxurious and adds some glamour to a space. An upside to owning painted furniture is that your wood accessories/frames don’t get lost. Do you see how great those wood vases look paired with Ophelia? The art print is “Flowers for Lady” from Laurel Dawn’s shop. I love her work and her son’s nursery!
There were some ups and downs in the transformation process, which delayed me (quite a bit) while completing this project… but it was worth it. Don’t you think?
How about another before and after…
