When undertaking a home plumbing project, you're always left with off cuts of PVC pipes in varying diameters.
You can get creative and use the off cuts to create a wine rack that is simple yet looks stunning.
Use a Dremel MultiTool with cutting disk to cut the pipes to equal lengths. You can use a miter saw or hack saw to cut the pipe if you don't have a Dremel.
Tip: Be sure to wear eye glasses and a mask as pipe dust gets everywhere.
After sanding and wiping clean, the pipes are ready to be joined together. You can use a combination of screws and epoxy glue made for plastic.
Before assembly mark the pipes and drill a hole to allow for screwing together with small nuts and bolts.
Epoxy glue can be applied to where the pipes join and are then screwed together. Join them so that the nut end is in a smaller pipe and can be held with a pair of pliers.
The glue helps hold the pipes together. Leave the glue to cure for the specified time before getting ready to paint.
To finish off your new wine rack, spray it with a couple of light, even coats of Rust-Oleum 2X in your choice of colour and leave it to dry over night.
Now you can wow your guests with a good bottle of wine and your DIY expertise.
