5 Wooden Wine Racks

Winter is just around the corner, which means loads of entertaining and spirits. Naturally, I’m on the hunt for wine racks that are both well-designed and affordable enough for gift-giving and hostess surprises.

While searching, I noticed my favorite designs were wooden, creating a beautiful mix of rustic, yet modern. Check out a few I spotted below!:

a. The Umbra Barrel Bamboo Wine Rack ($20) collapses when not in use and features a unique, circular design that holds 12 bottles. Definitely a top contender!
b. For a statement, the Zebrano Wood Wine Rack ($110) houses ten bottles with chrome accents separating each “layer.”
c. Equal parts sculptural and smart, the Wine Knot ($120) holds seven bottles in a molded plywood design. Gorgeous!
d. Sometimes you stick with the classic. This 24 Bottle Cellar Cube ($46) is an old standby for obvious reasons – the perfect mix of form and function span so many decor styles.
e. By far the most budget-friendly option is the Wine Bottle Folding Rack ($4) that seems directly inspired from my favorite Swedish drying rack. I love the simplicity, and of course – the price!

So, friends – which would you choose? Any favorites I’ve missed?

Two Floral DIY Ideas

I know, I know. Winter is barely here and I'm already pining for spring. Grass is truly greener, yes (especially when donning glorious florals!).

Regardless, when spring does arrive, at least I'll be ready. I've got my eye on two simple, five-minute tutorials that are sure to brighten the doorstep of a friend, neighbor, or… ahem, myself.

Care to see?:

1. Paper Basket Bouquet
How sweet do these daffodils look when sprouting from a simple paper bag? Cutest idea ever, and so, so cheap.

2. Fabric-Covered Pots
Have some spare fabric and a hideously outdated terracotta pot? You're in luck! Fabric covers a multitude of sins so your blooms can really blossom. Lucky you!

What do you think, friends? Can you wait until spring to try out these sweet ideas?

I didn't think so.
