DIY Minimalist Wine Rack

When simplicity is key, less is more. All you'll need for this minimalist wine rack is a wooden board, leather straps, some paint, screws and a leather punch. Choose the size of your wood board based on the size of your kitchen and how many wine bottles you wish to store. A 60cm x 40cm is shown here. First step is to paint the board with a white lacquer. You can of course choose a different colour, or leave the wood board untreated. However note that the white contrast with the dark wine bottles will give your board that distinct Scandinavian feel.  

If you have the tools, cut your own straps of leather. If not, purchase some pre-cut straps of equal width and about 35cm in length. At both ends of each strap punch a hole the exact size of the screws you wish to use. From this point, simply form a loop with your leather strap and decide where you wish to place the positioning for the three bottles. It's advised you lay out all six loops before attaching them to ensure they are of enough distance from one and other as well as from the edges of the board; this way your bottles will appear centred on the mount. Once you're set on position, simply screw the straps in place.
