Restored: Wine Rack

When Mike and I drove to Pittsburgh for Memorial Day weekend we came home with a wooden wine rack my grandfather on my mom’s side made. After my grandma passed I had hoped to find something that he made in addition to the foot stool I have with my birthdate from him and was excited when my mom told me about the wine rack.


The wine rack was very well made and still in great condition. We just wanted to give it a little TLC to restore it and give it new life. We sanded it and I removed the light bulb and mirror on the back. We plan to reuse the mirror elsewhere in our place instead of returning it to the back.


Then we stained it a nice dark brown and put a coat of polyurethane on it. I like how we spruced it up but still kept its character the same. Looks like we need more wine! :)
