No question: Wine is one of the best inventions in mankind’s history. A bottle of wine is your best companion on a Friday evening after a long week at work and helps you to survive any awkward family event. And even if you’re not a fan of drinking it, you must admit that it’s a perfect ingredient for soups and sauces. So it’s always a good idea to have a few wine bottles at home – just in case. But isn’t it boring to just store them side by side on a rack in your pantry? Today we want to show you how to store your wine bottles in a stylish and practical way by building a DIY wine rack out of empty cans. Sounds cool? So let’s start right away.
What Do You Need
- 9 to 12 empty and clean cans (depending on how many wine bottles you want to store) – either big food cans or small paint cans
- A can opener
- Fluid glue
- Spray color
What Do You Do
1. Step Free the empty and clean cans form their top and bottom by using a can opener. It’s important that there aren’t any leftovers so you can use the full size of your can.
2. Step Now it becomes colorful. Chose the colors you want your wine rack to have. You can use as many colors as you want – depending on what fits into your interior.
We recommend to spray the outside first. After the color dries fully you can spray the inner side of your can.
Our tip: If you don’t like any color at all, you can go for the cool industrial style that the cans provide on their own.
3. Step Now you have to let your colored cans dry very carefully. Afterwards, you have to put some glue on the side of the can where you want them to stick to another can. To make sure the cans are properly glued together, use some clothespins to stick the cans together while the glue dries.
Please make sure you are waiting long enough so that the glue completely dries.
Afterwards you can use your nice new wine rack and impress your friends and family without having spent a penny …
