Dominique from The White Cottage Blog took her wine rack from simple and stained to rustic white with Simplicity and a beeswax distressing bar!

A little while ago, my mister built me a wine rack with some pine boards. I wanted something simple that could just be plopped on the floor and hold the wine bottles sideways. I unfortunately can’t share the plans for the build itself because there are none. He just sort of makes it up as he goes along, kind of like me. Anyway, I had stained them at that time not really knowing what I’d end up doing to it.

Since this was only stained, it was a good opportunity to try out the Beeswax Distressing Bar.

The bar was pretty easy to use. You simply rub it on the edges or wherever you’d like there to be distressing, and once the paint has dried, the paint will come off in those spots with much more ease to give you a distressed look. And little to no sanding, which means no dust! That’s always a bonus.

In my true neutral loving nature, I chose Simplicity for this project. I think I should also mention that the paintbrush from Country Chic Paint (that I’ve obviously used a bunch of times) is the best I’ve ever used! Really, I’ve even used it on walls and I found it great.

And there you have it! A wine rack missing a few bottles! It sits in our dining room between the hutch and the entryway armoire. I much prefer it white than just stained.

Dominique {The White Cottage Blog}

I’m a self-proclaimed DIYer and I developed a passion for home decor as an adult. Nowadays, we’re fortunate to have the little Instagram community where we can interact with other decor lovers and share our own little adventures. It is by no means a professional business and unfortunately it’s not my day job, but it’s more than a hobby and it’s what takes up most of my free time. It all started with a little blog and it grew into whatever it’s become over the last year.
