Where every piece of junk has endless possibilities!
So life has finally slowed down enough for me to get one of my projects from Texas Antiques Week.
I know I know…its a five minute project…but finding the time to get in the garage and get this put together has been hard.
What makes this project so great is its use…it holds wine! Three entire bottles! There is nothing better than wine.
In October I traveled to central Texas for the Fall edition of Antiques Week. Two whole days there and we barely scratched the surface. The piles of junk and antiques went on and on. It was a wonderful treasure hunt.
I stumbled upon a small box of some great antique bed springs and I knew right away I wanted to turn them into wine bottle storage. I grabbed six of them and brought them back to Colorado. This project took the same amount of time as it took The Hubs to set up the router (for another project we are working on…which unfortunately took more than five minutes).
I haven’t hung these in our bar area yet because I am thinking about giving them away as Christmas Gifts. But when the time comes you can use Sawtooth picture hangers, or screw the racks directly into the wall for more support.
Stay tuned tomorrow for an update on #onemonthofthankfulness.
Nichole 🙂 (Shoot now I need some wine!)
Finding those springs was so fun! I can’t believe how much junk we sorted through and yet we barely scratched the surface of all the amazing things there. I love how these turned out!
Thanks for being my partner in crime on that particular adventure. It was so fun. You found some great stuff too.
Can’t believe you FOUND those springs! They fit perfectly! Such a great gift and it looks really expensive 🙂

It was one of those rare occasions where one of the things I was looking for was right out on a table in front of me. A little divine help perhaps. I have the perfect wine fanatic in mind for these, but I am definitely going to try to make more.

Thanks for the good news Lisa! Button grabbed. Thanks a million for hosting this great link party, I never miss it.
So how and what are you using to hang on wall?
I used Large Sawtooth picture hangers. I only use them at this point mainly to display a couple of my favorite bottles of wine that are empty (I wish we were the kind of people who bought wine and kept it around for a while, we usually buy wine and drink it the same day). If you plan to use them to store full bottles I would recommend using screws and going directly into the wall, to support the weight.
