Wine rack adds appeal to West Friendship kitchen
For Sandra Nettina, a simple refrigerator replacement turned into a much more involved task.
When the Angie’s List member’s 48-inch-wide built-in fridge stopped working, she replaced it with a smaller one. “I did not want to buy such a big model, so I got a 36-inch cabinet depth model, and had 6 inches on each side and 14 inches overhead, which needed to be filled in,” the West Friendship, Maryland, member says. “My primary goal was to still make the refrigerator look like it was built-in, and like the area around it was original, done at the same time as the cabinetry.”
Nettina then searched for a carpenter to help her fill the empty spaces. She decided to have side panels put on the sides of the fridge. For the space above the fridge, she chose to add a wine rack.
“I have plenty of cabinets with all kinds of storage options, so I wanted to do something that was different and looked really nice,” she says.
Nettina then hired highly rated David LeBon Custom Carpentry in Woodbine, Maryland.
According to Nettina, owner David LeBon drew a design for the wine rack that she liked. It took him only a week to complete the pieces.
Nettina says she then took them to another company, who had previously refinished her cabinets, so they could make the finish match. After that was done, she brought them back to LeBon, who then installed them. All of the work LeBon performed cost Nettina $550.
