...better late than never:
Denise talked me into this shelving unit, and I am so glad that she did, for only $45 it was a steal, and oh so clever and unique. The fantastic old man who makes them buys wine boxes in bulk, then turns them into exciting things. The piece I purchased has 3 boxes used as shelves and a shaved tree branch as the handle on top. Oh and I love the color! If you are interested in distressing things yourself, he said that he paints his pieces fully first, lets them dry, and then uses an elliptical sander to create the "worn" look. I love it! Not so sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but I know I'll find a place.
