Easy-to-Make Wine Rack
I never have enough space for wine storage, so I made this wine rack using pantry shelves and 1x2s. I used a router to round over the top edges of 1x2s, cut them so they’re a few inches shorter than the shelf depth; then spaced them about 2 in. apart. Then I screwed them to the shelf. I adjusted the shelf spacing so there’s about 5 in. of clearance for the bottles. – Robert Lackey

Wooden Wine Crates
Does your child’s room look like thieves ransacked it thinking it was the perfect hideaway for the family jewels? If you’re tired of the hurricane-just-passed-through-here look, place books, toys, clothes, shoes and more at eye level. Put toys in wooden wine boxes for easy toy storage access at any age.

Pump it Up
We might like this one the best because you get the pop sound if done correctly. Start with a bike pump and place the pump needle between the cork and the rim of the wine bottle. Pump it three or four times, but be careful because if you pump too much the bottle could explode. After a couple of pumps it cork will jump out or you can pull it out.
