Epic Fail

So, my first attempt at this Fall's Pinterest Challenge was a bit of an epic fail. I was planning to make this wine rack

from Camille Styles.  She even has a how to... and makes it look so easy.

I made a few attempts, but this was about as good as it got....

Not my best work by a longshot.

It's important to know when to cut your losses.  I just didn't have a drill press, or drill powerful enough to bore through cedar at an angle, or I didn't have the right drill bit.  Whatever way you look at it, that piece of wood just did not want to be a wine rack and there was nothing I could do about it.

Never fear my dear readers!  I couldn't let this belly flop be my contribution to the Fall Pinterest Challenge.  Luckily I'm a hoarder I have lots of random crafting and DIY supplies, so I was still able to pull together a project during my Hurricane Sandy instituted house arrest (we survived unscathed and kept power).  You'll have to wait until tomorrow to see the results, but I'll give you a hint.
