Okay, did the title get you? No, this post is not about organizing your wine collection. I don't drink so I don't have any of that to organize. LOL! Anyway, my precious sister gave us a wine rack she didn't use several years ago. My hubby used it for a while for his sparkling water and a couple of wine bottles but in our new house, there is a built in wine rack in the kitchen. So, no need for this little beauty. Of course, I decided to recycle this one, and I thought I would share with you how I have used it. Sis, I hope you like what I have done with it. :)
The wine rack sits on top of my new fabric storage that I shared with you last week. If you missed that post, click here. I knew I wanted to put pencils and smaller things in cups on this wine rack but I didn't have any cups. I tried one of our plastic cups from the kitchen and it almost fit as I wanted it to. So based on the diameter and length of the cup I had, I headed to Target. The kids thought I was nuts measuring a cup. LOL! At Target I found a clear, plastic tumbler that was a tiny bit longer and a tad wider. Perfect--exactly what I needed. I purchased 10, and here is how they looked in the wine rack:
Just the perfect fit! I filled the cups with colored pencils, wooden embellishments such as spools and Scrabble letters, and also measuring tapes. This is the perfect storage for these items, and I think it looks pretty too. Here it is filled:
I am sure you can find a wine rack inexpensively at a local Good Will or other thrift store or maybe you have an old one lying around. Have fun organizing, and I hope this has been helpful! Blessings to each of you!
