Wine Bottle Art

Empty Wine bottles on the rack

There’s an interesting phenomenon happening in apartments and homes of young students and professionals, as well as other generations alike. People are keeping empty wine bottles and displaying them on counters, cabinets, and shelves in their homes. You pay $10-15 for a bottle, enjoy the juice, and then display the bottles you like as an addition to your ever evolving home artistry. In this sense the value becomes much more than what you paid. Wine bottles and liquor bottles are the norm because their labels and packaging tend to have unique designs and artistic expression. Most people I see line the bottles on top of their kitchen cabinets, while others put them on a bookshelf or something similar in the living room. The picture above is a Christmas decoration that someone created using old wine bottles. Here’s some other ideas.

Ever think about using an enclume pot rack? May seem a little out there, but I thought it would be cool to walk into a kitchen and see a variety of bottles on a hanging display. Other items at that website, like the sideboard, could be a nice substitute to the enclume pot racks. Another idea is the obvious wine rack… love the Regatta. Yet that may be more for your unopened fine wine collection.

Whichever method you choose, use wine as a subjective expression of your taste. Hopefully, this trend will continue to grow as wine products differentiate themselves more and more in taste and packaging, and people continue trying new things and putting bottles they like up for show mlinwood.com.ua.
