    This is great, but you need to go one more step and install the chrome wine glass hangers from Lowes. They cost less than $4-5 dollars and would look great hanging from the top shelf behind the bar! I love this! We did a bar conversion from a wardrobe last Christmas. We have added more to it since then, but here it is. We used a scratch and dent $1200 wardrobe, that was marked down to $300. I wanted something I could close and have go unnoticed when the kids were around.
