DIY: PVC Pipe Wine Holder

After Rachelle Falcon transferred into her new house, she was excited about all of the fantastic things it had to offer. But one thing that she was not thrilled about was the absence of pantry space. At her previous home she had a perfect place to store the wines she enjoys to get and flavor, but in her kitchen there was just no way to store her wine. She fell in love with an amazing wine rack, but was not so in love with its price. A DIY queen who chronicles her creative jobs on Adventures in Creating, Falcon came up with this funding variation.

This new wine rack cost Falcon less than $20. If You Would like to recreate this contemporary appearance, you’ll need:

A mitre saw or hack saw (Falcon used her Dremel tool)

Many lengths and widths of PVC piping

Screws and screwdriver

Epoxy adhesive made for plastic


Cru Wine Rack – $150

This Cru Wine Rack by Umbra was Falcon’s inspiration. She instantly fell in love with this gorgeous metal piece, but at $150, it was a lot of money for her. She thought she could think of a reasonable method to generate something similar.

Falcon decided that PVC pipe would be a sturdy material to test. She went to her regional hardware store and purchased 4″ and 2″ PVC piping in a little over $1 per foot. She had the store cut it down so she wouldn’t buy considerably more than she needed.

Using her Dremel tool, Falcon cut the pipe to 6″ lengths to fit a wine bottle. She made 6 pieces of every size. You might even use a mitre saw or a hack saw to do this — just be sure to wear safety goggles!

Once the pipes were cut, she used a sander to smooth and even the borders. Employing cleaning spray along with a towel, then she scrubbed the pipes clean, then organized them from the pattern she wanted.

Falcon used a mixture of screws and epoxy to attach the pipes to each other. 32 x 3/4″ machine screws demonstrated long enough to fit through the 4″ tubes in which they joined, rather than overly long at which the 4″ and 2″ tubes connected.

Falcon quantified 1″ in from each end of every tube and marked drill holes on the exterior of every tube. This was by far the very time-consuming region of the project. After screwing together the tubes she pumped Loctite Epoxy Glue created for vinyl to the cracks to firm up the joints.

Falcon allow the glue dry overnight, then cleaned the final product again in the morning. To provide the wine rack a shiny appearance (and hide the pipe markings and screws), she spray painted the entire thing with a white Rustoleum spray paint.
