This wine box repurposed is perfect for small items like pens, artist paint brushes, jewelry, essential oil bottles and more!
Today I’m sharing a brand new repurposed makeover. An old wine box repurposed, to be exact.
I love finding old things at thrift stores, then bringing them home to turn them into something else completely!
So much fun, I love the challenge.
See how I turned this old wood wine bottle storage box/carrier into a neat little storage box for so many other things instead.
You might have already seen a little snippet over on Instagram if you follow along over there. ;)
Wine Box Repurposed
Which began like this…
It even had a nifty little rope hanger to carry it around.
But the wood box was nice.
I could envision using it to store some of my essential oils in but you really could use it for just about anything.
I began by first cutting off the rope hanger. I wouldn’t be needing that for my purposes.
Then I filled the holes in with wood filler.
I then measured the fabric for the top inset area.
I simply laid the fabric over the inset area, upside down, and marked the line where I needed to cut.
Can’t get much simpler than that!
After the wood filler was dry, I lightly sanded to smooth it out then painted it white.
And black on the inside…
I then applied the Mod Podge to the inset area on top and then attached the fabric piece I cut.
Once that was dry, I went over the whole thing, even the fabric, with a coat of poly. (linked in the materials list box above)
A little distressing on the edges and done!
Isn’t this so sweet now??
That old wine box repurposed looks completely different now!
No more wine….just all the stuff. ;)
I mean I guess you could still store a bottle of wine in there.
But I think it’s perfect for small essential oils bottles like this.
Do you use essential oils?? I wrote an entire post devoted to it if you are interested.

You can even use it as a watch box…
…or maybe any and all jewelry, watches, bracelets, etc…
A great way to keep things tidy and organized. And another great find on a budget!
