Upcycled Wine Rack Storage


Before: This wine rack was in need of an upcycle!

Back in the midst of the Covid lockdown I found myself wanting to find projects to keep myself busy. I naturally turned towards refreshing some furniture pieces that were dinged up or neglected. I realized I had put off rehabbing my wine storage rack that was in desperate need of an update, and I was determined to inject style into this piece as soon as the weather warmed up.


The wine cabinet started as a gift from my friend who no longer wanted the tall piece of furniture that had developed quite the wobble over time. It fit perfectly in my condo as it had the same wood stain color as my cabinets. Sadly, when we moved to our farm house in more rural Virginia there was just no good place for it. So I kept it in my office room for safe keeping until I could figure out next steps. I knew I wanted to paint it white to update and modernize the look, but this cabinet deserved something even more special.


I wanted to make this piece sparkle, and Rustoleum's 'Champagne Mist' color did just that.

Spray painting the fixtures a champagne gold was my way to make the cabinet more modern, and I decided I liked that color so much I painted the entire wine rack with it. Now we were getting somewhere. But I needed something else to pull the whole look together. And this is where my go-to furniture update came in, contact paper. If you've never tried using contact paper before you are missing out. This easy to apply paper easily transforms the look of an accent wall, and is very easy to remove.



I spend more time looking on Amazon for contact paper than I'd like to admit, as they always have fun new patterns to try. Usually there will be clearance priced patterns hidden in the 4th or 5th page that I view. I settled on an inexpensive white and yellow gold geometric pattern, and put it on all the accent fronts of the cabinet.


Now the cabinet is in its new home and is serving as our kitchen renovation inspiration
