Spring Into a Rustic Wine Bar

A good friend sold me a stack of vintage tongue and groove wood. It was a great deal because the nails were already removed. In researching what to do with it, I came across a simple hanging wine rack made with old springs. The springs were hiding in my treasure room. Found...

I took 8 of the boards and 3 springs and played with the layout.

After deciding on the layout I attached the boards with 2 scrap pieces of pine using 1 1/2 inch screws.

The next idea was to add a shelf at the bottom. I cut 4 slots to hold wine glasses. Using 3” screws I attached the shelf to the bottom.

The next step I positioned the springs and attached them using double pointed tacks.

The final step was to add hangers to the back. I used screws and sturdy wire because of the weight of the the wood, bottles and glasses.

I liked the rustic look of the wood so much I left it as is. The other side of the wood is a chippy blue paint so the next one I make will be painted blue.


This was a simple but cool way to build a wine bar. The reward on completion is to crack open a bottle. I don’t suggest you drink and craft when using power tools.
