Making a wine rack on your own lets you customize the piece to your space and allows you to get more for your money. Below are some quality wine rack ideas that are relatively easy to make.

This wine rack is one of the easiest to make and would work well on a kitchen countertop. As is, the wine rack looks very modern. However, you can make it look more rustic by aging the wood and painting the spikes bronze or black. Just be sure if you lean it against the wall that it's fully secure.

You could even use a clear finishing spray or adhesive to harden the rope into place.Continue to 5 of 10 below.
