Pallet Wine Rack

Purchase your very own at our Etsy store (if we are all out, please message me for a custom order)!

My obsession with pallet furniture continues (and I have successfully dragged my husband into the obsession with me!). I saw this idea on Pinterest:

Nate grabbed a half pallet from the side of his work and we got to work.

NOTE:  ***Before selecting your pallet, make sure that you are aware of how the pallet was treated in order to make sure it is safe for your house. All pallets should be marked with a code that lets you know how it has been treated.

-Methyl bromide fumigation (MB) 
-Chemical pressure impregnation (CPI)
It is also very important to make sure that the pallet is free of insects. Make sure the wood is in good condition and does not splinter easy. 

 He took the bottom of the pallet and made a cut across the 3 beams.

He then took an extra board off of the pallet and added it to the back of the wine rack.

 He took a second extra board and attached it to the bottom of the rack to hold the wine bottles up.

He then went through and secured each attachment with wood screws. Similar to how we finished the pallet coffee table, we sanded the wood with a very fine sandpaper then stained it with some leftover stain we had in the garage. We finished the wine rack with a few layers of polyurethane.
