Chris and I's Saturday project was to "de-ghettofy" our wine collection. I was getting tired of tripping on cases of wine in the morning when my eyes weren't open enough to avoid a nice Syrah. Our original plan was to buy a standard metal rack (nothing too expensive or too permanent for our nomadic lifestyle), but they all seemed so sterile (our bottles deserved more). We came across these simple pine wine racks at Cost Plus World Market and figured a little "do-it-yourself" wouldn't hurt.
We chose a Mediterranean Olive colored stain from Lowes.
BEFORE (sickening, huh?)
AFTER (Ahh... Much Better!)
We might need a third rack soon...
