Repurpose An Old Garden Rake As A Wine Glass Holder

If your kitchen style can be described as “country” or “rustic”, this simple decorating trick may be useful for you. Just pick up an old garden rake at a hardware store — the metal kind with with curved, blunt tips — and hang it from your wall to hang your wine glasses on. It’s not the most contemporary or modern look, but it’s functional and can look good depending on the rake you’re using.

These old metal rakes aren’t that easy to find, admittedly, but you should be able to pick one up at a secondhand store, and if not, you might even be able to score one new. A little scrubbing and a soak in water and you can make it look as distressed as the one above, or alternatively you can paint it to give it that coppery, rustic finish. Fans of clean lines (like myself) may cringe at the notion, but you have to admit it’s functional. What do you think? Something you’d do in your kitchen, or too country for you?
