Old Wood and Wine Staves




Here is something you can do with an old piece of wood and some wine staves.

I bought this old piece of wood with this metal holder thingy and these old wine staves.

This is what happens when you put them together.  I was thinking what a cute bud vase this makes.

Yep cut bud vase.

Of course I had to paint the wood white.  I know shocker!  I did however leave the metal holder rustic.  Added some faux flowers.



Hung them on each side of my old french window in the kitchen.

I think they add a little somethin somethin to my vignette above the little pantry cabinet.

I did find a smaller wreath to hang on the new mirror I made out of the stacked frames.

It gives a little texture to the mirror and it does not take away from the mirror or frames.

Ugh!  We got over two feet of snow in the last week and more to come this coming week.  The temps are going to plummet to single digits starting tonight and then wind chills of -40 below.  Why do I live here?!!!!!  Spring Spring where are you?!!!
Happy Friday.  Have a good weekend.

  4. They are so pretty! And so handy to add seasonal flowers there through the year. I bet you enjoy having them in your kitchen. That is a lot of snow but your house is such a cheery place to be while surrounded by deep snow. If I know you, your mind is already planning additions to your garden when spring does come...and it will!

  8. Those are really cool. I like the way you left the metal holders black. They match the knobs on the cabinet. Good call. It all goes together so well. I love that basket too. All that snow. Wow! Send some over here. I'll take it! Have a good weekend.

  9. Hello dear Kris! Great idea and Ilove the white flowers you used. We go snow, not as much as you did but when we went out yesterday to shovel, it was bitterly cold, so much colder than January was. We can get through this my friend.

  10. OH my goodness, that is a lot of snow! You will certainly be glad to see spring. The new smaller wreath is perfect for your mirror...shows more reflection. The bud vases are adorable. You find the best stuff! Stay warm. xoxo

  11. It's like they were made for each other! How cool. They look great. And I like your wreath for your mirror, too.
    That's a lot of snow! I don't envy you. Y'all are getting slammed! I'm just about over winter too. Of course, we get teased with springlike weather but it will turn back to cold and rainy next week with possible sleet and snow. The good thing is, we'll be back to 50-60s the following week. I'm just ready for flowers and greenery again!
    Hugs and warm thoughts,
    Cecilia

  13. OK. Kris, a bummer about the snow. 40 below, yikes and poor Buddy going out.

    I love these so much. Painting them white and leaving the rustic metal is a great touch.

    Stay warm my friend,

    Cindy

  15. That wreathe looks much better. Very cute with the bud vases. I don't drink wine and had never even heard of wine staves.

  18. How pretty are these bud vase holders you made! So is the old piece of wood the wine stave...from an old wine barrel? Very creative re-do. Hope you're staying warm and cozy inside. This Arctic blast stinks!

  19. What a cute idea! You know I love putting old items together to create something new! Very creative and the perfect addition to your lovely vignette! The snow is beautiful but dang! That's cold! Bundle up and think warm thoughts! Hugs!

  20. Very cute Kris! I hadn't heard of a "stave" either, but they are definitely "cute"!!! Amazing how a piece of wood can be put to such good use! I can see these holding real flowers during the summer months... and I like the smaller wreath on the mirror too.. I knew you'd find one! We are having spring-like weather here in Oregon.. it's such a teaser though, as we sometimes can get a foot of snow in March! ugh.... have a great weekend! Marilyn

  21. I love the idea. A little history along with the decor. :-) And of course I love anything with flowers.
    We are cold, cold, cold here! -20 wind chills.
    Do you have to dress Buddy in a jacket to go out? Our Molly hated any sweaters or coats we put on her, but we had to do it. Once we got out and going for her little walk she did not care, but she hated it at first. I loved her one sweatshirt, it had a hood too, she was so cute in it.

  25. I love the way the new flower vases look in the kitchen. It's a nice way to brighten things up. We're in the same boat as you with the snow. We got 17 inches of snow and then it melt for about 3 days. We're now getting today 3-5 inches of snow. I can't wait for April to come. Hope you stay warm and cozy and have a nice week.

  26. Hi Kris. That is the sweetest idea. It is a simple little touch that is perfect. I have seen on the news about all the snow you are getting. It does look very pretty, though, surrounding your little cottage. Aren't you lucky that Mother Nature color coordinated the snow to your pallet?..Stay well..xxoJudy

  27. Oh, I just love it..so pretty..it all looks great and the little wreath for the mirror, too.. Wow...now thats some cold temperatures..hope your power stays put.for sure.

Some areas in NC & SC got a good bit of snow..we got rain/sleet and snow and then as the song goes, "the snow turned into rain"..bah, humbug.. :0( .. Have a blessed week and stay warm and safe. Thanks for sharing always and entertaining us with beauty... :0)

  30. Those are adorable. They give you a pop of spring at least until you look out the window. It's not spring here.
