I hope you’ve had a lovely Easter, we’ve been busy these last weeks planning things to enjoy outdoors the lovely weather we are having, and finishing some projects I had in mind.
I don’t know if you remember the bench I did last week and that it was my first project using power tools on my own, but I was so excited I was able to do it that I started immediately to look for other things around here to change.
My eyes spotted this
My husband fell in love with this wine rack about 12 years ago, and it has moved with us twice… I always had the hope it could get lost in one of those moves, but unfortunately, it didn’t. So here it was, in front of me, and I decided it needed “something”.
The most annoying thing about it (apart from the eyesore) is when I had to move it to clean. It is heavy and this means I needed to pull it, and then it made a horrible noise. Casters, it needed some casters… but where, how??
I took a piece of laminate wood, measured the legs and planned to drill some holes to make them sit on the wood.
It was the turn for the casters.
Once they were attached to the wood, I measured the hight.
I cut some wood to get mitered corners using the table saw.
I nailed them in place.
I also used some wood filler to prepare it for the paint job.
Some priming before I spray painted it.
I thought this little cord would look nice around the base adding some detail.
If you remember the top, it was glass. I decided I didn’t like it that way too, so while working on the rest I designed a chevron paper and took it to my copy shop to print. I decoupaged it and painted a soft gray line all around.
The last thing was to spray paint the wine rack and seal it with varnish to protect.
It is so easy to move it now it’s on wheels!
If you are wondering why there is an empty bottle there it’s because it is so pretty I can’t throw it away. That will be another project.
Those glasses were a gift on my parents’ wedding. One broke some years ago but now we take good care of them.
I hope my husband likes it as much as I do! At least, I hope he will be happy it is easier to move.
