This step by step tutorial will show how I put together an LED lit upcycled wine rack. This project was a lot of fun and very rewarding. I had been wanting to do a project that used recycled materials for a while now. If anyone has questions please leave a comment and I would be happy to answer it. Happy building!
2 - 3 ft. of High Density LED Light Strip
1x LED Strip Light DC Connector
1x 12w Plug-In Power Supply
Wood stain of your Choice
Some sand paper
Step 1: Get Your Hands on a Good Pallet
For full information about pallets and how they are prepared, how to choose one or where you can buy a brand new pallet - here is a great article.
Step 2: Get the Part You Need
Step 3: Stain that Bad Boy Up, Then Weather It!
Once dried, take some sand paper to different edges and take off some of the stain. Do this in areas you think would provide good accents (front, back, embeveled parts of the wood, etc).
I like to throw stain on the nails as well, then sand them up a bit too, looks nice!
