DIY: Instant Wine Bar

Here’s a clever idea we spotted at the Medlock Ames Winery in Healdsburg, CA: a picnic table as wine tasting bar.

Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects (responsible for the outdoor area) started with a wooden picnic table, then replaced the middle slat with a gutter. The result? A table cum wine cooler, perfect for accommodating the winery’s guests.

N.B.: For more on the Healdsburg winery, see Restaurant Visit: Medlock Ames in Sonoma on Remodelista.

Above: A 10-foot-long K Style Galvanized Gutters is $21.60 at Gutter Supply. You can source hardware (to hold it in place) and a saw (to cut the gutter to the same length as the table) at your local hardware store.
