How to Make a Wine Rack with PVC

With my son’s graduation party a week away, I wanted to create a neat way to organize the bottles of wine (or juice, water, whatever) we will have that will not be stored in the cooler.  This organizer is constructed out of 4″ PVC. It can be painted any color using spray paint and costs just a few dollars to make! Today, I’ll show you how to whip this baby out in no time flat!


I honestly cannot believe I did not take any step-by-step photos but this project is so easy, I’m sure you won’t need them!


  • 4 ” PVC pipe 
  • Saw- hacksaw or miter saw
  • Liquid Nails or Stik ‘n Seal adhesive
  • Spray paint
  • Tape measure & pencil

Start by cutting the PVC in 7″ lengths. I like to use my miter saw because The hacksaw and I don’t work well together…

Use a vinegar and water mixture to thoroughly clean the PVC, and also help the paint stick. Spray paint the inside first, then spray paint the outside. I use Rust-Oleum 2x Ultra Cover because I find it sticks to plastic really well.

Arrange the PVC according to your personal taste – I used the regular ol’ pyramid style – and secure the PVC together with the adhesive. 

Voila! Easy wine storage!! Now, where’s the party?? (Ha ha!)


Got a project you’ve completed using my plans? Share photos with me at cher {at} designsbystudioc {dot} com or designsbystudioc {at} gmail {dot} com. I would love to feature your work on DbSC!

Until next time,

Happy Creating!
