Pallet Wine Rack


I've been collecting pallets for about a year now and had quite the stack out in the garage. It was about time I did something with all of them!

So I cut them apart and made wine racks! It was actually fairly easy however I would recommend having two people.

We started by using a metal cutting blade in the sawzall to cut through the nails of the boards we didn't want. Then used a wood cutting blade to cut the pallets up.

I could have stopped there if I just wanted a rack for the wine bottles but I also wanted a glass rack. I used a spare board that had been cut off, drilled 6 holes evenly spaced across the board and then used my jigsaw to cut from the sides to the insides of the holes.

Tacked all my pieces together, added a little white paint {using a dry brush technique} and hung the piece up!

Add the necessary items and it's ready to go!

    Where can we find the pallets? We checked big box stores, they reuse them and don't sell them or give them away.

      Make a post to Facebook. You'll be surprised how many people know actual locations of free pallets in your area. I have two sources I still haven't collected from.
