Besta Wine Rack and Liquor Cabinet





IMG_3373-797711

Materials: Besta Frame 75 5/8″ (401.021.29), Besta glass door, Inreda mirrored glass shelf insert (501.965.42), 4 extra Inreda shelves (901.034.71), 1.25″ lumber, cut into 12″€ rods (a total of 30-42′ depending on the number of shelves desired), Dark brown wood stain, Lacquer, Gorilla glue

Description: Having a large wine and spirits collection and not wanting to spend a fortune on a wine rack, Besta was the best way to make as much storage for wine as we needed.

1) Using a 75 5/8″€ tall Besta frame, we installed an Inreda mirrored glass shelf insert in the top potion.
2) Shelf #2 is used for liquor bottles standing upright.
3) The wine rack portion was the main part of the hack. I went to a hardware store and had 1.25” unstained lumber cut down into 12″€ rods. Then I stained each rod, applied lacquer, and used Gorilla glue to attach them to each shelf and the unit base (wood glue did NOT hold onto the Besta finish). Each shelf has 6 rods, which means it can hold 7 bottles. The rods are spaced with 1.75″ between each rod, and 2.25″ from the last rod to the side wall.

Including the base, I had a total of 7 shelves available to store wine. I chose not to install the rods on the top two shelves to allow for larger bottles, like champagne. Make sure to purchase enough lumber for the rods if you want to install more. Each smaller shelf is spaced with 3 peg holes visible between shelves.
4) I chose to install a 50 3/8″ glass door, which I don’€™t believe Ikea makes anymore. It was even difficult to find at the time. Any combination of Besta doors will do, though installing any on the wine rack section might prevent installation of the shelves at regular intervals, because the hinges use peg holes.

    This is an awesome hack! As a scotch enthusiast I also admire the choices of scotch I see there. I had a note about the Talisker I see laying flat. If that is a full container it shouldn’t be left on it’s side. The strength in the alcohol can actually ruin the cork and therefore ruin the drink. Just a friendly note!

    Thanks again and it looks great!
