Client Dresses Up Wine Racks In Various Stain Options

September 17th, 2020

Running out of ideas on how to make your wine racks stand out? Our client’s custom wine rack might be able to help inspire you with the awesome DIY wine storage rack he built. As you can see below, our client decided to spice things up a bit by choosing various stains and finishes.

He also cleverly added an unstained racking unit into the mix.  The result is this eye-catching wine storage with its contrasting color scheme. The finished project gives off a modern and unique aesthetic which is very pleasing to the eye.

Various stains and finishes on racks

Classic or Contemporary Stain Options

To achieve various contrasting hues like the pair you see in images, Wine Cellar Innovations offers an assortment of these contrasting colors. The classic choices include Light Danish, Classic Mahogany, and Dark Walnut. These will give your wine racks a traditional and elegant appearance. For a bolder statement, check out the Midnight Black Stain option. It is a jet black stain that exudes contemporary charm. It’s a dramatic departure from traditional woodworking finishes and works best with light-colored wood such as Premium Redwood and Rustic Pine.

Now if you wish to give your wine racks a look that veers from the “traditional” route, our newer stain and finish products are a must-try. Whitewash, for example, is a semi-transparent stain. It will give an off-white cast to your wood while still letting the grain show through. It adds a definitive “texture” to the wood, giving it more character.

Another popular stain one to try out is Graywash. You may have heard of this stain, especially with home renovation projects. It is also a semi-transparent stain, just like Whitewash. There is no texture that comes through.  What you get is a smooth finish that showcases the beauty of the wood beneath it. Lastly, there’s the Opaque White stain which is not semi-transparent. You will not be able to see through the stain to the grain on the wood. What you’ll get is a pristine white finish. ^_^
