Building Wine Storage

Good morning!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  I had an awesome weekend.  On Friday night, I went to a local ceramics place with my daughter and had a great time.  Then we went for supper and met up with her best friend (Hi Cayla) and bought a dress or two.   Will share pics when I pick up our projects.  Saturday I dove right in to my wine storage solution.   More storage is needed as our winery is growing.  One can only make so much jam when you have an abundance of raspberries.  So we took up the art of wine making.  I shared our raspberry wine recipe HERE!  We made a few kit wines too.
  Anyways, I bought 5 sheets of sheathing plywood as I didn't want to sell my first born for the good both sides plywood.  I kinda like to keep her around.   As hubby was out of town,  I didn't have the get-up-and-go to handle five 4x8 sheets so I  had the lumber store cut the wood into 13"x48" strips.  Then I was able to cut the smaller pieces by myself.  For each unit I cut 2 - 13"x42" pieces,
4 - 13"x40 1/2" pieces, 6 - 13x13" pieces.  And then I assembled all four units........

I guess I could paint the shelving but it kind of matches the pine shelving in our cold room already.  So meh......I will just leave it for now.  Looks like we need to make a lot more wine.

Wine for all!
Have a great day!

  1. That is phenomenally awesome! Wow! What's your favourite wine to buy? And, thanks for the kudos in your sidebar...I was off and on blogging for a bit...but I'm back! Come see my pillows! xo

  2. Hi Wendy, We've been a little sidetracked too. Probably going to do one post a week as everybody seems so busy. Hmmmm, my favorite wine kit to buy is probably Kenridge Chocolate Port. We have had great success with our homemade raspberry wine. Hubby likes his very dry and I like mine a little sweeter. Hopefully our next two batches turn out as good as the last few have! I am off to see your pillows now!
