Wine Rack turned Gift Wrap Station

As some of you may remember, we recently spruced up our dining room and bought a new wine bar/buffet. I didn't want to throw away our old wine rack (sentimental reasons) so I finally came up with an excuse to keep it functional way to re-purpose it. My H brought the rack to the basement for the time being and set it down next to the table where I keep all of my wrapping paper and the idea was born- this would be my new wrapping station! I have a slight obsession with gift wrap, bows, ribbons, and things that make a present look nice so I have a lot of stuff that needs to be organized. The regualar sized rolls fit perfectly in the bottle slots but I have some super long rolls that were too long (they stuck out too far). I took some sturdy gift boxes and used them as drawers to hold my ribbons and bows (eventually, I will find plastic containers that will fit).

 Container that sits on top of curling ribbon.
 Another container that sits on top and holds things like tape, gifts tags, and gift boxes.

I have this box sitting on a table off to the side that holds larger gift boxes, gift bags, and tissue paper. On top of all of this, I have a plastic tote that is filled with Christmas bows, gift bags, tags, ribbons, and boxes. It's out of control, I know but I love wrapping presents, it's kind of therapeutic for me.

Do you like wrapping presents? How do you organize your supplies?


  1. What a genius idea! I have all of my wrapping paper shoved in a corner of the closet!! This is a great way to get organized! Love it! You should post this idea on Pinterest!

  8. This is FAB!! I have a "gift-wrapping" section in my apt but if we had the space, it would be a gift wrapping room. Love that stuff. Is that weird!? :)
    Great blog and congrats on 100!!

  9. Cool idea! Better than cramming all the gift wrap into storage never to be seen again - and this rack looks good, too!
