DIY Wine Bottle Centerpiece

Hey there! Β 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 πŸ™‚
measurementsI made all of my cuts first. Β 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! Β 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 VarathaneΒ stains, Carrington as the base coat. Β 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 πŸ™‚

metal-sheet-hobby-lobbyWhile I waited for the paint to dry, I began cutting the metal sheets. Β I purchased two sheets at Hobby Lobby for about $7 each (when they were marked at 40% off)! Β 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 cordless stapler. Β 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. Β I used Elmer’s ProBond and 2″ nails with in Ryobi Airstrike Nailer to attach the pieces. Β 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? Β I went back with my Corner Cat Sander and distressed the entire crate with an 80-grit pad. Β This will allow the stain and bare wood to peek through the paint, giving our crate that awesome vintage look πŸ™‚

I added a pull on each end, Β filled it with 7 empty wine bottles and dropped a pretty flower in each one πŸ™‚

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