Bottoms Up

Put Stemware on display.

1 . Cut an 111/2- x 48-inch stair tread (found in the lumber department) into two 24-inch-long pieces. (Use the second piece to create another stemware display, or save it for a future
project.) Prime the board, and apply two coats of paint (we used Valspar Signature Colors, Laura Ashley Home, Inlet Blue #LA1215, flat), allowing each coat to dry.

2 . Prime two metal brackets (#156065) with metal primer, and paint them to match the board, letting each coat dry.

3 . Place two under-cabinet stemware racks (#210024) end to end, centered on the underside of the board (as shown). With a pencil, mark the locations for pilot holes. Lay the racks aside, and drill the pilot holes with a 1/8-inch bit. Attach the racks using the hardware provided.

4 . Measure and mark the placement of the brackets on the wall—over studs if possible or using hollow-wall anchors if in drywall. Using #8 x 11/4-inch screws, hang each bracket, and then secure the board to the brackets.
