Here is a nifty way to take something that you would usually throw away and put it to good use. A CD music rack repurposed into a wine bottle holding rack! When most of us used to actually still listen to music on CD, we all had these racks in our homes for easy access to our music collection. Now, most people enjoy there music digitally and do not play a music CD anymore. So instead of tossing that wooden CD tower into the trash, why not reinvent its purpose? With a little bit of hard work and about $30 dollars, you can turn your music rack into an LED lighting wine bottle holder.
MATERIALS NEEDED TO CONVERT A CD RACK TO A WINE BOTTLE RACK:
1 – Can of black paint
1 – Can of wood stain (your choice of color)
10 – Squares cut from MDF (medium density fibreboard)
1 – 3 ft long universal LED flexible lighting strip
1 – Can of paint for exterior (your choice of color)
2 – Bolts (holds wine rack to floor)
Inserted and attached 3 feet of LED flexible lighting to the inside corners of the CD rack.
The LED lighting comes with adhesive tape on the back for easy installation.
Make a small hole at the bottom back of the rack using a drill for the power cord to exit.
Here is the original CD rack compared to the new DIY wine rack!
What a great way to reinvent something in a very simple and easy way!
NOTE: Make sure to either bolt the wine rack into the floor or add something
to the back and attach it to the wall so it does not fall and cause damage.
