Restoration Hardware-Inspired: Wine Cabinet

Hey there! This week I finally finished up a project that has been in the works way too long, but the important thing is I did finish it.

Restoration Hardware Inspired Wine Cabinet

I refinished, and restyled, a wine cabinet. My inspiration for this makeover comes from Restoration Hardware. I am totally in love with their Zinc collection. This piece in particular.

I love this look on so many levels. It’s industrial, sleek and chic all at the same time.

This is the before.

Wine Cabinet Makeover



This is what it looks like now.

It really wasn’t that difficult just time-consuming. I started by spot spraying it with Krylon Outdoors Black Metallic Finish spray paint.

Then I spot sprayed it with Krylon Outdoors Silver Hammered Metal Finish spray paint.

I used the same treatment for the feet.

Then I painted the nailhead trim with Rub n Buff in Pewter to give it an aged look.

To apply the nailhead trim I simply measured the four sides of the front then cut the trim into four pieces. The trim is so easy to apply. I found the best way to do it is to hold the individual nailheads with pliers in order to hammer them in. And you will definitely need a mallet rather than a hammer.

Once that was done I had to apply the feet. This is much easier if you use straight top plates. They look like this.

So I basically just decided where I wanted each foot to go then measured for the same spot at each corner and marked each one with a sharpie.

Then I used the power drill to attach each plate and foot.

That’s it! It turned out exactly how I had hoped it would.

    You did a great job. It looks like real zinc, and you only used two spray paints plus Rub and Buff for the nailheads right? Pardon my ignorance, but do chain stores carry Rub and Buff? I asked for it at my local Ace Hardware but got nowhere. We do have Home Depot and Lowes here so i thought I’d try them next.

      Thanks Judy! You can get Rub n Buff at Hobby Lobby and Michael’s. I’m pretty sure Home Depot or Lowe’s won’t have it. You can also find it on Amazon, I just ordered some from there. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!!

    I saw this on knock off and I just had to stop by and tell you how much I love it. I love the color, the legs, and especially the cubbies… I’m a cubbie lover <3

      July 13, 2013 at 12:12 pm

      Hi Susan! Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind words. I’m with you on the cubbies. Anything that helps me stay organized is ok with me!

    I love what you did with this! Sometimes I think I’m creative, then I see projects like this, and I realize I’m better off checking out what the truly gifted creators do ;0) You are talented indeed! Can I ask where you found the nail heads and furniture feet? Thanks for sharing this awesome DIY!!

      July 14, 2013 at 6:47 pm

      Hi Michelle,

      Thanks so much!! Don’t ever doubt your creativity girl ;) I bought the nail heads on I think you can also find them at craft/fabric stores like Hobby Lobby and Hancock Fabrics. The feet were given to me by a friend (I lucked out) but you can buy them at Lowe’s, Home Depot, Amazon, and E-bay.

      Thanks so much for stopping by!
