When I was living in Austin, and in my first place, I was at garage sales every weekend. It was the only feasible way Clint and I could furnish our home on our newly married budget. With this came all kinds of trash that I made into treasure. One of these things being an old headboard that I made into a shelf, of sorts. I promised it a new paint job. Well.. Austin came and went and the unpainted headboard came with us to Houston. I sat it against a wall in the dining room, and after 6 months, it hadn’t moved- only collected random objects.
For Christmas, my parents gave me a beautiful wine rack. When the headboard/shelf could hardly support the wine, I decided it was time to let go of my $5 treasure and invest in something new.
Here’s what I came up with:
Now our new wine cooler, rack, tumbler and set of wine/cocktail glasses have a home. (And one that doesn’t blend in to the color of the wall!)
Side note: Clint has been out of town, so I put this together all by myself. I feel a little overly proud of that.
Now to a weekend of friends coming over so that I can test this baby out.
