Creativity is where it’s at here at WCI’s Testimonial Thursdays! Today, we bring you this wonderful DIY wine storage from our client Nick. He was pretty proud of how everything turned out and didn’t miss the chance to showcase the results:
Here’s Nick striking a pose with his stunning wine racking arrangement. His project is another inspiring example of how you can build wine storage anywhere in your home. In his case, he transformed a section of his IKEA cabinets into a spot to host his collection. He purchased some individual bottle column racks from WCI in Rustic Pine. He then went for a Midnight Black Stain option for the wood. It was definitely the perfect choice! The jet black stain matched the dark shades of the IKEA cabinet. It seems like the racks were completely built-in! That is one of the biggest benefits of staining your wine racks. You can get it to match your existing furniture or decor. Midnight Black Stain has become quite a popular option for custom and DIY wine cellar projects. It’s a dramatic departure from traditional woodworking finishes with a contemporary appeal.
But this is not all that the client has accomplished. To add a fanciful touch to his racks, he also integrated some LED lighting accessories. Check out the snap above! The electric blue LED lights are certainly eye-catching, aren’t they? Lighting accents are a clever way to bring more focus to your wine collection. They accentuate both the wine bottles and your racking units as well. The client did really well in choosing bright colors for the lighting. They create a great contrast with the dark shades of the racks and cabinet. And get this! Our client also informed us that he made it so the lights can change in a fade set to multi-colors. What else can we say but “Bravo, Nick”!
“The racks arrived as ordered and yes, I used a nail gun to put the together. Attached are three photos of the racks. I placed them in the center of an IKEA cabinet arrangement which form a square with the racks in the center. I also put LED rope lights behind the racks as you will see in one of the photos. I can change the light colors or have them change in a fade set up to multi colors. We are very pleased with the results.”
