When Instructables user struck gold and purchased a 25-gallon wine barrel at a yard sale for $10, he knew that the possibilities were endless. Eventually, he decided that he would transform the barrel into a light-up wine rack. If you’re a wine lover, this is the project for you.

began by labeling the barrel staves and hoops.

He then dismantled the barrel by removing the hoops with a chisel and wooden mallet.

The wood needed a new look, so he added a fresh coat of stain.

Once the stain was dry, the barrel was reassembled.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

He cut away a portion of the barrel where the wine rack would eventually be installed.

Next he added a wine glass holder and mini wine rack that he found at a secondhand store. A string of LED lights added some much-needed flair.

It’s hard to believe that such a beautiful wine rack was made with a yard sale find.

I need one of these in my kitchen ASAP!
