Danny Seo's DIY Wine Rack
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!
What you'll need:
- Metal plumbing pipes (1/2" x 8") with bases
- Spray Paint
- Stainless Steel Screws
- Electric Drill
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.
Time to Get Creative
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.
