So, my first attempt at this Fall’s Pinterest Challenge was a bit of an epic fail.
I was planning to make this wine rack
from Camille Styles. She even has a how to… and makes it look so easy.
I made a few attempts, but this was about as good as it got….
Not my best work by a longshot.
It’s important to know when to cut your losses. I just didn’t have a drill press, or drill powerful enough to bore through cedar at an angle, or I didn’t have the right drill bit. Whatever way you look at it, that piece of wood just did not want to be a wine rack and there was nothing I could do about it.
Never fear my dear readers! I couldn’t let this belly flop be my contribution to the Fall Pinterest Challenge. Luckily
I’m a hoarder I have lots of random crafting and DIY supplies, so I was still able to pull together a project during my Hurricane Sandy instituted house arrest (we survived unscathed and kept power). You’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see the results, but I’ll give you a hint.
