But.... *sigh* .... look at the condition of the drawers.
I decided to set my drawers aside, for now too. They will make their appearance again...someday.
The BLUE was fabulous on the dresser, but I wanted a deeper, richer...you know, more of an aged look. So I used a stain to "glaze" over the blue paint.
The next fabulous thing I discovered was the planking that made up the inside of the dresser. Ooh Laaa La!
If you search long enough...the solution will appear. I've had a few very water damaged pressback chairs in the corner of the barn for a few years now. The only thing salvageable on them were the backrests, and it seemed a perfect solution to cradle a few bottles of wine.
I put a divider between them so the fit would be nice and snug.

Sometimes it's SO hard to let a piece of furniture go after creating. I almost swapped the blue (used to be dresser) wine hutch out with the one below that I made a few years ago. Almost. The stained (used to be dresser) wine hutch won in the end and is still in my house.
