Pre-made wine racks are seen as “luxury items” ranging from prices that you might not want to spend. However, if you’ve got some time on your hands, you could end up spending less than $10-15 building your own DIY wine rack! Make the perfect customizable wine rack for yourself or give it away as a gift.

Hip tips on storing wine properly: 

  • Store between 45-65 degrees
  • Avoid vibration
  • Lie bottles with cork on the side
  • Maintain humidity to around 50-70%

Whether you want a rustic look or something a little more modern, there are countless options available. Here are my five personal favorites based on cute designs, easy assembly, and affordability. 😉

Note: If you don’t have a saw on hand or need certain measurements, just get them cut at the hardware store when you’re picking up supplies!
