OoTB: From Pallet to Wine Rack and My Return

My goodness! How time flies and the summer sails right on by. I have been in and out-of-town and haven’t quite had the time for blogging or projects in the past month. I’m excited to get back on the horse and get back to the blogging world! I have seen a slow down in some of my favorite blogs over the summer so hopefully I’m not the only one who went MIA.

A few weeks ago, I did a post about a pallet sign that I made for my cousin and her family.

I had a few pieces of wood leftover from that project. In my “waste nothing” mentality, I decided to create a wine rack out of the remaining materials. My sister would be the recipient as it was a late housewarming gift!

This is the basic structure that I nailed together and reinforced for sturdiness.

After giving it a good sanding, it was time to apply a wood conditioning treatment so that the stain would go on evenly.

In my excitement to turn this pallet wood into a rich, wine cubby, I forgot to photograph the stain I used. But it was Minwax in Jacobean! After that dried overnight, I sealed it with a clear, protective gloss for extra protection.

Here it is hanging up in its new home and looking mighty beautiful!

Makes you want to take your pick and cuddle up with a Merlot doesn’t it?!

Happy to be back! Have a great weekend everyone!
