35 DIY Wine Racks For Storage, Display, & Functionality

By: Ashley Ziegler |

A well-made wine rack is a functional place to store your vino and a design piece to add to your home.

Also, many retailers offer discounts to shoppers who buy several bottles at once, so having a wine rack in the home gives you a spot to put all that product. 

Another way to get a discount? Making a DIY wine rack. You can create a rack that suits your needs while also saving money.

Instead, just make a DIY wine rack like one of these. You can fill up some empty space in the house, have easy access to your beverage of choice, and know that your wine is safe from harm. Not to mention, making a wine rack isn’t a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
