What do you do when you love wine & your mom loves to re-do furniture? You pick up a trashed out dresser from the side of the road in hopes to make it into a giant wine rack!
This dresser didn't have any drawers when I found it so that was one less thing I had to worry about. It did have the middle rail in each opening for drawers, so we just unscrewed those & got rid of them. We got 1/2 rounds from Home Depot to use as the bottle separators. I used liquid nails instead of nails or screws to keep the dowels in place. I figured it would be too time consuming &/or annoying to nail/screw in a million little nails/screws.
I knew I wanted the inside to be a little dark so I went with a sage green spray paint.
My mom bought Country Grey Annie Sloan chalk paint for this project. You can see how different it already looks after one coat!
Fully painted & tape removed. Once it was dry, we applied a home made wax finish. My mom combined regular furniture wax with a little stain. (It was a bit cheaper than buying the name brand stuff) She rubbed that on the
I took leftover wallpaper & glued it to the back of the wine rack. I just pried off the back board & applied spray adhesive, lined up the wallpaper on the board & then tacked it back on the back. You can see the wax finish in this pic.
Finished product! Not quite full enough but some how bottles keep disappearing. :-)
