Fine Wine Rack

Last weekend's project was to transform the most cheapie IKEA wine rack (14 years old) into something that didn't bother my eyes when I see it at the bottom of the basement staircase. It was raw naked wood, with splinters and rough edges, and shiny screwheads everywhere. Why buy a new one when we'd rather spend money on what sits on it. Here it is now, no longer naked, in a new coat of paint:

Now it's not so bad. It's fine. Not great, not fantastic, but serviceable fine. It even sports some paint techniques to give it a rustic feel:
