Garbage to Gorgeous® – Episode #3: DIY Beachy Wine Holder Makeover How To

Our friend dropped off an old wine holder. It was just screaming for a wine holder makeover! I took it from 90’s grapes to beachy fun! It’s a great before and after!

I was lucky enough to have the old wine holder show up at my front door. If you don’t have one, be sure to scour thrift stores and you will be sure to find something that works!

Beachy Wine Holder Makeover Directions

Step 1

Remove the grapes and leaves off of the basket. In this case, the handle came off too. Then, clean it and dry it.

Take the wine holder apart

Step 2

Prime the entire piece.

Prime all of the pieces white

Step 3

Using a paint brush, load half of the brush with parchment paper and half with gray. Use both colors on one brush to streak the basket.

Lightly paint the basket with a mix of parchment and medium gray paint to give it a washed out look

Step 4

Do the same on the handle, but use mostly gray. I did a blue accent on the rope portion of the handle. It’s subtle and just ties in the blue from the dragonfly.

Step 5

Allow to dry, then wire back together.
