"The Hippest Winery In Mexico Is Made Of Recycled Boats"

Architects Alejandro D’Acosta and Claudia Turrent have carved a niche designing stunning, upscale wineries and other buildings in Baja.They specialize in finding uses for offbeat, reclaimed material. 

It’s wine o’clock — okay, it isn’t yet here in Texas, but it is somewhere — which means it’s time to share a wine-related repurposing find …

Today’s find:  A winery constructed from boats.

(See more in Unconsumption’s wine o’clock series here; previous boat-related posts: here.)

At last, it’s wine o’clock again, which means it time to share an adult beverage-related repurposing find!

Today’s find, via Randy & Meg’s Garden Paradise, is bottle trees. (Or would you say they’re flowers?)

Repurposing that involves both pallets and wine? Yes, right here!
Turn an old pallet made into a wine rack:

The project isn’t too complicated; basically you’re cutting off a section of the pallet to hold the wine, and adding some u-shaped glass holders underneath. You’ll need a jigsaw and some other tools, but it’s pretty much Shop Class 101. The final product should hold at least five bottles of wine comfortably, and dangle your glasses attractively below for easy access during dinner parties.

For DIY details, see this Lifehacker post.

It’s wine o’clock (somewhere) …
Which means it’s time to share a wine-related repurposing idea: Use corks as coaster tops. (via Libbie on Etsy)
For additional inspiration: Check out the Unconsumption “wine o’clock” series — a semi-regular series of Friday afternoon posts — here.
Salud!

It’s wine o’clock (somewhere), so time to share an adult beverage-related repurposing find. 
Today, it’s Champagne corks used as bike handlebar caps. (photo by Jon Heslop)

That’s three recurring Unconsumption themes — pallet-, wine-, and storage-related repurposing — all rolled into one photo!

It’s wine o’clock somewhere — which means it’s time to share another wine-related repurposing find. 
Today, it’s wine corks used as floor covering. 
This photo, via MSN, shows the cork-floor handiwork of Dan Phillips, of Huntsville, Texas-based Phoenix Commotion (mentioned previously on Unconsumption here), which constructs affordable homes from recycled, salvaged, and/or found materials.

It’s wine o’clock somewhere, which means it’s time to share a wine-related repurposing find.

Today, it’s stools made from corks. (Could also be used as side tables, maybe?)

If, like me, you’re wondering what these stools’ cores consist of, the source says the stools are “100% cork." So, there’s that!

Cork seating spotted on LikeCool. Thanks to our friends @dothegreenthing for the tip!

Save wine bottles, make your own tables. 

Simply insert bottles in to openings in pieces of wood. In addition to use as table tops, the pieces of wood (in this case, they’re scrap wood sealed with a wax finish) can function as serving trays.

Brazilian designer Tati Guimarães designed this collection. We featured her metal frame that holds corks — for use as trivets, or to hang on a wall — on Unconsumption here (way back in June 2009!). Check out her site, Ciclus, for additional information.
