Painting vs Repurposing Kitchen Cabinet Wine Racks
If you don't like your kitchen cabinet wine rack, consider repurposing the cabinet box as a shelf, microwave box or matching doors,
Most kitchen cabinet wine racks aren't easy to paint because they are often glued together and have areas where it’s literally impossible to paint well. Most wine racks are originally sprayed in pieces, then inserted inside a cabinet box, then trimmed to finish.
Some wine racks are also glued to the box substrate which makes them impossible to remove without damaging adjacent cabinets.
Another issue is not being able to sand inside them properly. Sanding is a crucial step that helps paint bond. Wine bottles can chip poorly sanded areas very easily.
Being said, we have painted the inside of wine racks by hand but it’s often extremely difficult or impossible to get in corners. Because of these issues, we recommend covering over them with (oak, maple or MDF) or have a local cabinet shop build a matched profile insert prior to us painting the entire kitchen. This way you’ll have a seamless look all colour matched making the kitchen look new again and matched beautifully.
