Salvaged Industrial Wine Caddy


I posted the before pictures of this piece on my Facebook bizz page and asked what people thought it was going to be! Oh the answers were HILARIOUS! From a Bedrock Jump Drive to a robot to a penguin or platypus! HA! Well, as much fun as those ideas would have been, she turned into this funky little wine caddy! I sort of want to put a star on top and make it our holiday tree for entertaining this year! :P So fun! I've left a decent description on each photo of how she came about. I hope this inspires some people to have some fun with salvaged finds! Of course, if you feel like joining in the 'before' fun of the creations made, sneak over to our Facebook page and let the laughs begin! www.facebook.com/gypsybarn
The final product. A tad heavy, but when it comes to making sure it's stable for the weight of the bottles, the legs and weight of the piece itself are perfect!

Perfect little are here to store the wine glass tags. Or the nails fit bottles between the perfectly for a no tip area. Of course add it anything else to hang like the openers and such.

Licence plate from 1934. Perfectly rusty. A little elbow grease to clean off the chippy rust and then coated in pure bees wax and buffed. Now its protected and easy to clean up.

The little service area. Those holes were not fun to drill. I called in a friend with a super fun power drill and made some Tim the Tool man noises while it tore through the old beam! HAHAA! Fun!

The origin of the legs. The desk was way to warped and there was no way I could reproduce the curve of the drop front myself. So it was salvaged into the legs of this caddy!

another lovely close up showing off the waxed plate. We had a white plate on there before - but I wasn't feeling it. Luckily this one was found in my fun junk pile!

The beam was treated with a tung oil to help keep it preserved.
