Yard sale bargains often inspire some of the greatest DIY projects.

You can find some pretty reasonably priced items at local yard sales, but remember this: It's first come, first serve. You might have to sacrifice a few hours of sleep to get the best deals possible.

When Instructables user Qnlfg81 struck gold and purchased a 25-gallon wine barrel at a yard sale for $10, he knew that the possibilities were endless. Eventually, he decided that he would transform the barrel into a light-up wine rack. If you're a wine lover, this is the project for you.

Qnlfg81 began by labeling the barrel staves and hoops.
