Use a pallet to creat a rustic wine shelf. I want to make like 10 of these and just hang them one above the other all over my dining room wall to give a touch to it, NOT because I have that much wine, but because I love the chunkiness, the rustic wood, and the stellar color of the finish.
I hacked up another pallet to create this shelf. It really is a perfect fit for wine bottles and cookbooks.
I used my new favorite non-toxic wood stain to create the aged dark finish on the raw wood.
- Take one steel wool pad
- Put it into the bottom of a jar
- Sprinkle used coffee grounds on top
- Fill with vinegar
- Let it marinate overnight and it is ready to use!
This will give your wood an old worn dark brownish gray finish.
This is my contribution to my son’s preschool fundraising auction. I’m excited, but it is such pressure!
Like, what if no one bids on it? What if I am standing there and hear someone whispering about what a joke it is? What if …
Well, then I guess I will just bring it back home and it actually will hang on my dining room wall!
