I love this shot John took of the door going into the wine room with the bouganvilla in full bloom.
Our Wine Room. This room has enjoyed many incarnations. It began it’s life as my husband’s workshop, then morphed into a workout room. When my son got married at our home we decided to turn it into a wine room. We saved money by salvaging the original concrete floors. We scored and stained them. The counters are constructed of old barn flooring from a barn in Pennsylvania. The beams are also from an old barn. One of Steve’s guys built the cabinets and I painted and aged them. The door to the wine cellar was a left over from one of Steve’s vendors. We had local artisan Bob Signorello due the ironwork on the door to make it more interesting.
The beautiful painting in the background is by Pat Huber. The wine on the left is from one of our favorite Paso Wineries Villa Creek.

Several people have emailed me and asked about the lighting in the kitchen. It was made in Mexico over 20 years ago as was the cabinet hardware. The cabinets were built by Hattersley Construction. The ceilings and beams were sandblasted, the beams hand azed, then whitewashed and scraped also over 20 years ago. The counters are concrete overlay by Brenda Davis http://www.brendadavispainting.com. The new backsplash is Meditteranean 9 by Tabarka Studios http://tabarkastudio.com/tile-collections/mediterranean/
Next week I will post about our wonderful trip to Roundtop and don’t forget to put May 2 on your calendar for our barn sale. You can enjoy wine and nibbles while you shop!!
