Wine and coat rack

Saw a wine rack at Crate and Barrel that we liked... but it was simple but a 6 bottle rack and really too big for an RV. So what is a guy to do?

Build a knock off 4 bottle version!
And rather than hang glasses from the bottom, RV-ize it and incorporate a much needed coat rack

The coat hangers are from Ikea and fold and latch up when not in use.
And speaking of RV'izing the rack: there are separator walls between each wine bottle so they cannot fall over even if not all are loaded.

My wine------------

I'm afraid my wine would not make it to the rack!


Is a nice coat rack that supports 4 bottles of wine.

Only if you plan on storing them for a period of time. Somehow I don't think these will last long...lol!

Long term wine storage is at home in the wine cooler and yes the bottles are all horizontal in that. Really corks are just fine vertical so long as the cork is not allowed to dry out and then leak.

These are definitely not expected nor planned to last that long so upright is alright. Especially any bottle which has already been uncorked.

May I also say this is why we drink red wine: no need to keep cold to drink
