DIY Wine Case for charity

Happy Monday everyone! Remember the DIY Wine Case we built for United Services for Children a few weeks back?  Well, they had their big event and we are happy to report our donated piece brought the children $500!  Congratulations to Denise Liebel who bid the highest receiving a beautiful wine cabinet at a wonderful price, and helped a great organization, United Services for Children!  The next time you are in your garages be sure to make a great piece for a local charity – the help your time and donation can bring means a bunch to the people who need it! 🙂

Have a great Monday!


DIY Wine Case

Wine Cabinet … Yes Please!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Today I am going to share a wine cabinet project with you that I built with the help of some plans from Ana White.  Ana is the author of the book “The Handbuilt Home” and has a blog site where you can go to get free plans to help you create wonderful custom pieces of hand built furniture.  If you love to woodwork, (and I do), then Ana’s site is a must save on your computer’s favorite bar!  🙂  I bring this site up today, because we at Hello…I Live Here carved out a weekend to create a custom wine cabinet we will be donating to a local children’s charity here in St Peter’s, MO, United Services for  Children, in St Peter’s, MO.  Curt and I were honored to have been asked by Diane Regelsperger Wolferding, Resource Development Director for the service to donate one of our beautiful creations.  So, I hopped on over to Ana’s site and found a plan I could alter for this little gem.  This lovely wine cabinet was created from the SHANTY OPEN SHELF CONSOLE, which was designed for the Shanty sisters at Shanty-2-Chic blog site.  We altered the plan to make it a wine cabinet which came out spectacular!  We hope the piece brings great things for United Services for  Children.  If your local here in St Louis, the event is the Viva La Fiesta @ Ameristar Casino, St Charles, MO. Saturday, August 17, 2013.  Place your silent auction bid on line!  Great day everyone, and don’t forget to take some time out of your schedule to donate a creation to your favorite charity!
