Gorgeous DIY With Vintner Racks In Dark Walnut Stain

June 13th, 2019

If you haven’t worked with WCI’s wine rack kits before, now’s the time to get started. These kits are not just easy on the budget, they can also really bring it when it comes to style. A lot of our Testimonial Thursday blogs feature satisfied clients using these kits. Today is no exception. We have another DIY project to showcase and it is a keeper:

Michael with his Vintner wine cellar

We have here our very happy client, Michael, and his newly completed wine cellar. It is a glass-enclosed beauty, featuring our Vintner Series. As far as wine rack kits go, our Vintner Series is the most popular one. It can definitely give custom racking some serious competition, thanks to the variety of designs it offers. In fact, Vintner has been called as “the next best thing to custom,” owing to the many options available for the racking units. Michael’s wine cellar is a terrific example since you can see the quality of the racks in the completed set-up.

If you carefully look at these photos, you will surely notice how seamless the racking arrangement is. The racks are nicely tucked into the corners and beautifully framed out by the rough-hewn stone walls and pillars. Unless someone spills the tea, one would most likely think this is a custom job. But everything came from the Vintner Series and put together with the use of a nail gun. The client went for Premium Redwood as the wood choice for the units. He also chose a bold Dark Walnut Stain option that elevated the elegance factor of the wine room. But what really pulled this gorgeous DIY together are the crown moldings and center seam trim. Thanks to these accents, the racking arrangement flowed seamlessly around the room. There are no awkward gaps between the different racking units and they actually look like they’re built into the space.

Glass-enclosed beauty

“I’m very happy with the outcome and everyone loves it. Let me know what you think. I did use a nail gun to put the racks together. I couldn’t imagine doing it without a nail gun. Then again, I did have a lot of racks to put together. It started slow trying to follow the instructions but once I did a few the rest went quickly. I think my cellar holds 1,150 bottles.”
