DIY Wine Bottle Centerpiece

Hey there!  I’m excited to share this easy centerpiece that I put together this weekend!

DIY-Wine-Bottle-CenterpieceIt’s quick, easy and only about $20!

Here’s how I made it :)
measurementsI made all of my cuts first.  You can make it as big or as small as you like, this is just the size that I wanted for my Dining Table.

4- 2×3 pieces @ 32″

4 – 2×3 pieces @ 7 1/4″

4 – 2×3 pieces @ 5″

4 – 1×3 pieces @ 32″

pocket-hole-spotsNext, I drilled one 1 1/2″ pocket hole into each end of the 5″ pieces, with my Kreg Jig.

attach-side-framesand attached them to the 32″ 2×3 pieces with 2″ pocket hole screws.

Now, this is where the steps get a little different than usual!  I finished all of the pieces, at this point, before assembling the rest of the crate.

Varathane-Carrington-Wood-Stain-500x740

stain-boardsI used one our favorite Varathane stains, Carrington as the base coat.  I just wiped one coat on every piece, let it sit for about 5 minutes and then wiped it with a clean cloth.

Rustoleum_Heirloom_White_edited-1Then, I followed-up with 2 coats of one of our favorites, Heriloom White by Rust-Oleum. You can click the box below to purchase it online :)

metal-sheet-hobby-lobbyWhile I waited for the paint to dry, I began cutting the metal sheets.  I purchased two sheets at Hobby Lobby for about $7 each (when they were marked at 40% off)!  They have lots of different patterns to choose from!

cut-metalI cut it straight down the middle with a pair of scissors

cut-trim-off-metaland because my crate is longer than the metal, I cut the edge off of one side.

match-patternFrom the other sheet, I cut a piece that fit the end of my crate and matched-up the patterns.

staple-metalTo attach the metal sheets, I just used my Ryobi Airstrike Stapler.  I put about 6 staples on each side. (attach metal to the inside of the frames)

assemble-boxAfter I attached the metal to the long sides, I assembled the crate by attaching each frame to the 7 1/4″ pieces.  I used Elmer’s ProBond and 2″ nails with in Ryobi Airstrike Nailer to attach the pieces.  Once the crate is assembled, you can add the metal to the short ends with the stapler.

attach-bottomFinally, I flipped the crate over and attached the 1×3 boards, with my Ryobi Nailer and 1 1/4″ nails, to form the bottom of the crate.

distressRemember the stain and paint I applied?  I went back with my Ryobi Corner Cat Sander and distressed the entire crate with an 80-grit pad.  This will allow the stain and bare wood to peek through the paint, giving our crate that awesome vintage look :)

I added a pull on each end,  filled it with 7 empty wine bottles and dropped a pretty flower in each one :)

Wine-Bottle-Centerpiece-DIYIt’s such a fun way to add a different pop of color to my dining room each week!
