Wine Holder Makeover

I had bought this wine holder a couple of years ago and used it in our old house to hold any overflow bottles that wouldn’t fit on the wine holder we had at the time.

Since we moved we now have this wine holder from Pottery Barn {found at the outlet}.  This picture is from the Fall, but you can see it clearly.

I was going to get rid of this little holder, but then I saw how Nelly Vintage Home had made one over by painting it white. 

I had a small amount of Pure White chalk paint left over and decided to use it up before it dried out.

I’m hoping I can figure out some way to use it in my own home,  otherwise it’s going in my Etsy.

If you’ve got any ideas I’d love to hear them.

How fun. I saw one holding towels in a bathroom. It looks great painted white. Hugs, Marty

Pretty makeover Kathy!

I was going to say towels too, but Marty beat me to it. You could also roll magazines in it.

Ooooh it looks so pretty white! My two cents: I'd paint the inside white too - although I'm sure that might be a pain. I like the idea for towels and magazines too or how Nellie used the scrolled sheet music.

I love it in white, Kathy! You are going to find a lot of uses for it. I like the sheet music in your inspiration folder.

Kathy, what a great idea. I pass those up all the time. Never again. Love the old paper storage idea. Beautiful.

Kathy...I love the way this looks in white, now! From "ugh" to "ahh"...simply beautiful!

JP said...

Gonna pin it for you!

Cynthia said...

What a fantastic idea, I love the way it turned out. Looks like a vintage piece now. I will never walk by one in HG again.

Hi, Kahty. Very pretty. How about holding rolled up magazines in that pretty guest room of yours? Anxious to see how/where it ends up! ~Zuni

It turned out beautiful. I also love your table. Where did you find that beauty.

Missy George said...

I guess it's too small for a mailbox??
Magazine rack??

Angie@Echoes of Laughter said...

Great job Kathy! I have all the same suggestions...towels,magazines, etc. I cannot believe how beautiful it is in white! Wishing you a lovely week! Angie xo

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

What a smart idea! You have given your wine holder a new life!

Gail said...

What a pretty make-over Kathy! I LOVE it. In the last year or so, I have seen those wine holders at thrift stores and wished I had seen potential in them like that. Now I'll be on the lookout for one. Enjoy your day, Gail

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

And to think you were going to trash it...it looks great!!....I am sure you will come up with great ideas to fill the holder...Can you use it to store silverware..say use it on a buffet...You would definitely have to stuff the back portion of it and they are deep spaces...

Lorrie Brewer said...

Love it! Beautiful makeover! It would look great with wine it! *lol!

KATHY said...

Cathy @ My 1929 Charmer said...

Gosh, I don't think I'll ever look at a wine holder the same again! So cute, and what a great upcycle!

Karen @ A Stylish Interior said...

Kathy, it's soooo much better white. Just love it. What about using it for mail/bills? Yarn? House plans/sketches? Makeup brushes? Kitchen utensils? I'm on a roll! LOL!

Maria Elena said...

i LOVE the white version---is it big enough to be a umbrella stand?

JG said...

Hi Kathy! My idea is more decorative than practical but I immediately thought of birds nests with eggs or turning it on its side and using as a planter???

Cannot go wrong with white anything! Love this piece.

Have fun
sincerely, Jeannette
