How to DIY: Oversized Pegboard Wall Mount Wine Rack

Looking to save space yet store oodles of bottles of wine? Check out this easy wall mount wine rack!

I caught a load of you-know-what for my previous pantry wine racks which you can read about here. The idea was that this is temporary storage, and hey, they work fantastically!

Anyway....The pantry is collecting too much stuff, time to reevaluate the wine storage. I needed more storage but a smaller footprint.

I opted to go the oversized pegboard route. Not to be trendy but because it efficiently solved my dilemma and honestly, it does look cool too. So I drew up my plan.

If you'd like a copy of this plan for free, come sign up within this blog post over at Flipping the Flip, the link is in the blog post twice.

I used a 24x24 precut birch plywood panel from the home improvement store, then laid out the grid for the dowel pegs.

Yes, I tend to always wear my slippers while DIY'ing, they're comfy. And safe, they have rubber soles.....Ok, off track here.....

With a portable drill press and a Forstner bit, I drilled out the 5/8" dowel holes in the plywood where the grid lines crossed. Those are the center points of the dowels.

You'll find far more tips, tricks, sealer information, and details over on the blog (Flipping the Flip) so be sure to click the link at the end of this post.

Next up, cut the dowels. The best way to ensure they're all the same size is to make a stop, like the one above.

Time to take out all your frustrations! Wrap a rubber mallet in a rag (it prevents the black rubber from rubbing off) and bang in those pegs! Make sure you have a backer board behind so the pegs end up flush.

I hung mine on the wall using keyhole brackets which are oh-so-handy little gizmos! Dig out the space where the bracket is so the mounting screw in the wall will fit right in.

And tada! We went from 24 bottles of storage to 49 in one swoop! Nice!

This thing is great, super sturdy, has a smaller footprint, and holds more.

Even my sweetheart loves it. Be sure to swing on by the blog for more details and information on this project along with all sorts of other cool stuff! The link is below!
