Goodwill goes glam

Sometimes, really cute things are wrapped in really not-cute packages.

Like this wine rack.


I bought her at Goodwill a while ago thinking that she had potential—she's capable of holding 16 bottles, after all.

But features like unfinished wood and tacky bolts had really cemented her status as a plain-Jane. To fix her up and make her shine, it became increasingly obvious that I would need to bring out the "big guns" of the fashion world.

Those would be turquoise and leopard print, obviously.


Some might say she's over-the-top. But I think she's grade-A fabulous.  

And there's definitely nothing subtle about her beauty now.

Need this wine rack to spice up your kitchen? Purchase by visiting my (brand new, really empty) Etsy shop (


  1. WOW. This is gorgeous! I love how you contrasted the blue with the wood!
