Showcase your wine bottles with this chic, do-it-yourself wine rack from design expert, Danny Seo. Not only is this inexpensive wine rack easy-to-install, but you can show off your creative side by personalizing and designing your own pattern too.


Build a Shrine to Wine!

"Vino" was Rach's first word -- and design expert Danny Seo's inspiration for this easy-to-install wine wall. With simple pipes and paint, you can create a display that fits any space in your home. Time to hit the hardware store. And the wine shop!

DIY Wine Rack

Getting Started!

What you'll need:

  • Metal plumbing pipes (1/2" x 8") with bases
  • Spray Paint
  • Stainless Steel Screws
  • Electric Drill
  • Level

Next: Choose a blank wall space -- as large or small as you'd like! -- then follow these steps!


Connect the Pieces

Step 1: Screw the pipes into their bases, then spray-paint them with two coats in a color of your choice. (If you want, paint the screws to match.) Let dry.

"X" Marks the Spot

Step 2: Make an "X" where the center of the first base will go. Measure 3 inches to the right from that spot and make an "X" for the center of the next base.

Measure Twice, Screw Once

Step 3: Place the pipe flush against the wall, centering the base over the first "X," and mark the four screw holes.

Time to Start the Drill!

Step 4: Screw the base securely into the wall with a drill. If you're not drilling directly into the wall studs, use wall anchors for additional support.

Step 5: Follow Steps 3 and 4 to attach the second base. Use a level to make sure it is parallel to the first base before drilling.

Now all you need is wine!

Step 6: Create your own wall pattern with the remaining pipes. Leave at least 8 inches above and below each row so there's enough room for the bottles.
