DIY Wine Rack – To preserve the taste and keep the corks moist, proper wine storage is essential. A temperature between 50 and 55 degrees Fahrenheit and a humidity level of 70 percent are optimal, but bottles can be stored in an area with slight fluctuations of up to six months without becoming contaminated. Wineries are normally used for wine storage, but if you do not have a basement, you can use an extra closet instead. Small clothes or coat from the closet can easily hold more than 100 bottles of wine.

Measure the width and height of the cabinet. Figure one shelf for every 8 inches of height. Mark a level line on the back of the cabinet for each platform. Position two shelving support brackets vertically along the rear wall of the cabinet. Cut the 2-inch strips fit the width of the shelves. Apply a small drop of wood putty to the head of each screw and allow it to dry. Paint the shelves, if desired.

Then install shelf brackets on shelf supports on each horizontal line marked on the back wall of the cabinet. Place the shelves on top of the brackets. Fill the shelves with wine bottles. The lip created by the setting will hold the wine on the shelves. Hammer a sweep of the rubber door on the bottom of the door and install weather stripping around the perimeter to keep light out of the closet.
