How to Make a Wine Rack with PVC

An Inexpensive and Colorful Way to Store Wine

While planning a cookout with friends and family, 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 make this wine rack with PVC for a quick and inexpensive project that can be finished however you wish!

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 (<– affiliate link!)
  • 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… I can never make straight cuts.  I do much better with the miter saw!

Next, use a vinegar and water mixture to thoroughly clean the PVC. This will also help the paint stick to the PVC. When painting, 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 without scratching off.

Then, arrange the PVC according to your personal taste – I used the regular ol’ pyramid style – and secure the PVC together with the adhesive. Start at the bottom and build your way up! Let the adhesive thoroughly dry.

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