    I just got a vintage 1930s icebox from my sis-in-law. It belonged to her grandmother, and her parents are selling their home and moving to assisted living.

    What will I do with an enameled steel art deco icebox? I asked myself the same question, since I am in a "get rid of clutter" mode. Kegerator? Cheese or sausage aging cabinet? Would need to add a refrigeration unit for that. Storage? That's what it's been doing for the past 70 years.

    Answer: wine cabinet. Depending on the racks I build, it should hold 30+ bottles in the food compartment. There is an additional compartment above, where the block of ice used to go, and I will put my "top shelf" wines in there. The plan is to put it in the pump room in the cellar where the wines are racked now, where it's 55 degrees year round.

    It's in my kitchen right now, close to the 1934 Garland gas range that is my only and much-loved kitchen stove. The two look so right together. If I can figure out a low impact chiller, I might just give it a fresh coat of paint and keep it in the kitchen.
