Painting Kitchen Cabinet Wine Racks

Painting vs Re-purposing Kitchen Cabinet Wine Racks

If you don't like your kitchen cabinet wine rack, consider re-purposing the cabinet box as a shelf, microwave box or matching doors.


Some wine racks aren't easy to disassemble or paint because they are glued together. This can make it impossible to paint them to look new again. 

Sanding old varnish is a crucial step in preventing paint from chipping or peeling. Wine bottles will chip poorly sanded areas easily which is why we mention this whenever wine racks come up in the conversation..

If lack of being able to prep them properly, or painting them cannot achieve pro results, or maybe you don't even want the wine rack. We recommend covering wine racks with a similar wood product they are made of. In some cases, people will have a local cabinet shop build a matched profile to insert into the wine enclosure. This way you’ll have a seamless color-matched beautifully refinished kitchen with a repurposed spot for extra space.
