My husband loves DIYs just as much as I and without our mutual love, none of our DIYs could be possible mainly because anyone who enjoys doing it themselves knows a creative mind thrives in chaos and believe me, our house is always littered with glitter, power tools, and my bits and bobs. Most of the time those things are put away but it feels like majority of the time I’m tripping over cords and various crafts in various stages of not doneness.
Once and a while I’ll be featuring a DIY that’s been spear headed by my husband. Most things involving wood and power tools are his brain child, which I love. He’s very creative and even has his own Pinterest account (SWOON). He was hiding his secret Pinterest addiction by bookmarking his ideas rather than making an account. Finally I convinced him to just make account.
This is his latest creation. We don’t drink so we can’t quite call it a “Wine Rack” but that’s essentially what it is! Right now it houses a funky old wine bottle that had been collecting dust along with one of his other cool DIYs he’s done recently.
He started with a scrap piece of wood he found at the cottage. It was doing nothing but collecting dust, quite literally. He got some rail way spikes from our Brother In-Law that he had salvaged from a rail yard.
He figured out where he wanted the spikes to go.
and Hammered in the spikes!
Whenever something involves power tools and wood, I tend to back away in fear I might do some permanent damage to my project. But in this case, it couldn’t have been easier!
My husband wants to put a finish of some sort on the wood to protect it — what do you think? How should this wine rack be finished?
