Reclaimed Wood Wine Rack

I think I am becoming a man.  Now before you get too excited, what I mean is that I am having a difficult time painting wood.  Some of the wood in my reclaimed wood stash is so beautiful I just can't paint it.  Thus was the case with this wine rack I made:
As you can see, I did get a little color in there, after all, I am still me--bright color girl :).
But, I chose to leave the lovely alder pieces as is.
And not only did I not paint them, I also did not stain them a dark color, but used a natural stain on them instead.
This was a simple enough build.  I started by making the shelves, screwing the ledge on up through the bottom of the shelf.
I then used fairly long screws to screw the shelves on through the back.  This does have heavy D rings on it to hang it on a wall.  But it needs molly bolts to keep it secure on a wall and since I am selling this, I do not need 2 (more) large holes in my walls.
PS--It was only a small glass of wine in the middle of the afternoon--all for staging the photo shoot.

  3. Personally I think after all that hard work and making such a wonderful wine rack you deserve a small glass of wine. Wonderful project, love the painted shelf bottoms. I agree about the alder not being painted or even darkly stained. There are times to leave things be.
    My hubs made a great tray today out of reclaimed wood and some pellet pieces and it looks great just like it is. I'll get a light stain and then wax it, leave it as is. He's going to make another one little smaller also. Now have to make myself put it in for selling. I have a real thing for trays especially if they're different. Think I'll use chunky jute for the handles. I go crazy over great old wood.
    Happy Days

  4. Love the wine rack, but do have one suggestion, your bottles should tip towards the opening to keep the corks wet. I really love that you only add a splash of color, the natural wood speaks for it's self.
