5 Days Of Giveaway's - Day #5: It's The Little Things...

It is the final day of our

5 Days Of Giveaway's Party

to celebrate our 1st birthday here at

It's The Little Things...

and we couldn't think of a better way to mark the occasion than by giving a little piece of ourselves, to you. As you know, we've always got a project going on around here, and at the core of it all, helping me turn my vision into a reality, is Will's time and effort, taking care of all the carpentry out in his shop. I couldn't make half of the things I do in our home happen without his support and carpentry skills.

But this time, instead of building something for me, he's going to build for you!

The giveaway gift for today is a

$150.00 Gift Certificate

to spend in our Etsy shop - Home Restyle - where we sell our

Reproduction Antique Riddling Racks

I discovered Riddling Racks earlier this year and immediately knew that it was exactly the kind of "wow factor" I was looking for in our (then) dining room.

But the price of genuine Antique Riddling Racks stopped me in my tracks! The price tag of $650.00 (and up to well over $1000.00) plus tax and shipping, made even the thought of having one of our own, an impossibility.

Luckily, I have my own carpenter...

It took only a small amount of convincing to get Will on board with the idea, and by the next day (and tons of saw dust and wood shavings later), we had a brand new Riddling Rack. But...brand new was not what I was going for. I wanted old. Beat up, old. So that's what we did. After quite a bit of distressing, I applied several layers of finish to give the overall color tons of variation and depth, making it look aged and rustic.

It has been on display in our home ever since, and it is one of my favorite things we own. The best part - that it was handmade by Will. It no longer hangs in our dining room (that's now a bedroom), but I found the perfect spot for it in our

Now, instead of holding wine bottles, it holds candle light.

Take a look at how we have used ours over the past 8 months and get a closer look at the details...

Our Reproduction Antique Riddling Racks hold 36 bottles of wine. They are just shy of 2' wide and just over 3' tall.

Head over to our Etsy shop - Home Restyle - to get all of the details.
