Unfinished Wood Wine Racks for a Custom Look

One of my favorite home decor tricks is to refinish wood furniture.  Well, nowadays you can pretty much buy any type of furniture already unfinished, yet new.  And that modern benefit extends to wine storage as well.  This Wine Rack – 110 Bottle is a great example of what I’m talking about.  This unfinished wood wine rack allows you to customize to perfectly match your home decor scheme.  So you can apply a paint to get just the right punch of color in your home or if you have a particular stain that you like, that’s another option.

Another thing I like about this particular rack is that it is a truly space efficient wine rack.  You can pack 110 bottles into just 42.5 inches of space, great for any medium sized collection.   The top of this rack also can be used for display space in the dining room, or even as an occasional buffet when you are entertaining friends and family.   And at the perfect price point to be budget friendly, this rack is also a great choice for the wine cellar or garage.  In that case, you may wish to leave it unfinished since it is not part of the decor.

If you are looking for something smaller, there is a matching Wooden Wine Rack-Holds 44 Bottles-Unfinished Pine which can also be painted or stained to your liking.

This one takes up even less space with its tall, narrow design.  I think that’s a great choice for use in the kitchen or dining room.   If you want to go the do it yourself route even further, you can scan second hand stores and do the refinishing yourself.  Look for something with a very good, sturdy structure so that you know that your precious wine collection is protected at all times.
Whatever size your wine collection is, there is an unfinished wood rack for you!

Dragonfly Glasses – Perfect Companion For Your Wine

Arriving just in time for the long, warm summer nights that are swiftly approaching, the Dragonfly Glass Collection is the perfect addition to your kitchen. These decorative glasses add some extra pizzazz to a get together or even just a family dinner. I feel like celebrating the summer every time I drink from one of the many dragonfly glasses I have added to my kitchen collection.

This dragonfly themed glass collection features a wide variety of glasses, from a set of four decorative tumblers to an iced tea glass set of four, and of course, for us wine lovers there is a Dragonfly Balloon Wine Glass – Set of Four.
The wine glasses come with a variety of sizes, add the entire collection for a Summer-themed bar collection. You will have no problem pairing your favorite wines with the right glass! Whether it is a white wine or red wine, you can find exactly what you need. There is even a martini glass with dragonfly etchings!

Each and every set in this decorative glass collection comes with four glasses, making it the perfect choice for a family of four; if you are throwing a party, get a couple sets of these glasses for a fun, Summer-y motif! With all the different styles that are available, there is definitely a glass set for your specific need.

Another great thing I have discovered about these glasses is that the dragonfly design is actually etched into the glass, so the design will not fade over time. It is very disappointing to get great decorative glasses only to have the paint or design wash off. The etchings provide excellent grip for these glasses when a typical glass would be slick with condensation.

Also included in this collection are a large decorative glass bowl and a decorative ice bucket. These are the perfect accessories for any get-together or gathering.
