First the refrigerator was given a better home. The exposed side was covered with nice harwood veneer to match the surrounding wood.
The top of the refrigerator is always a catch-all spot for "things" that can't be easily fetched unless husband gets a ladder. So, a display shelf was the choice, created with added lighting to show off some better pieces of kitchen ware that may only be used occasionally.
The final step was to create a cabinet worthy of that corner. Instead of a flimsy roll cart, a more permanent cabinet was made. It has three functions now. With a granite top it is part of the kitchen, a usable surface. The doors and drawer are storage you can reach. The sides hold 20 bottles of wine. You can use the entire cabinet for wine serving. The granite top is unharmed by water, heat or alcohol.
