  • Copper spray paint

How to Make a DIY Wine Rack

To make a DIY wood wine rack, the first thing you need to do is find a piece of reclaimed wood to upcycle. We had these boards in our garage and chose to use the unpainted plank on the left.

Once you have found a good piece of reclaimed wood, the next step is to thoroughly sand it. After sanding, prepare your paint by mixing the Woodoc Clifton Grey into the clear Woodoc Water-Bourne Floor Sealer. Apply your first coat of paint and allow it to dry completely. While that’s drying, spray the newspaper hooks with copper spray paint. We love the look of the copper against the light grey paint on the finished DIY wine rack!

Apply your second coat of paint and allow this to completely dry. Depending on the look you like, you may want to add a third coat of paint as well. Once everything is properly dry, measure where you would like the newspaper hooks to go. This will depend on the dimensions of the reclaimed wood plank you are using. We definitely suggest pre-drilling pilot holes before you drill your hooks on. This makes it a lot easier. Finally, add your wine collection. You’re done! Step back to admire your DIY wine rack!
