Our new wine rack

Inspired by, ohhh ok, copied from this post over at IKEA Hacker, with the addition of some lighting, we now have a new wine rack. It needs a few more bottles, and possibly the addition of some rubber dots to stop the bottles rolling around but I think it looks quite good.

What do you think?

    This is not a wine rack, this is a dad’s medicine cabinet! Looks great and I think I recognise the lights? Next time we call we will come equipped to fill the gaps – we get the hint! You can get little clear plastic cushioned dots which normally attach to the bottom of things to stop them scratching a surface, but they might do stuck on your shelves and they’d be well nigh invisible. Glad you put your weekend to good use and empathy with the migraine.x

    Just had a thought, if you buy enough bottles they won’t roll about!!

    Like the winerack idea – we may have to do something similar, once all our CDs are sorted out and ripped. Well, we’ll see.

    Very stylish – and, nice Blue 🙂

    But, I can tell you’re a wine drinker not a wine buff! (our Master of Wine qualified friend would tell you that keeping wine under light and not on its side is a definite no-no).

    The lights are LED, so I don’t think they pose as much danger (little to no temperature), and I only stood up the cheap bottles for the photo.

    In saying all that, I’m definitely a drinker and part-time buff (occasional good bottle, mostly drink for pleasure)

    Very nice! My Belgian ales would look rather nice on display there, but I assume this is for short-term storage, unless your living room is a moist 55 F/13 C degrees. 😉
