Alternative Finishes For An Unfinished Wood Wine Rack

If you’re not one who wants a totally unfinished wood wine rack, then you’ll want to add a little more work to enhance its look. You can do several different things to make your wine rack look great. Of course, there’s no problem with using your unfinished wood wine rack as it currently is, but with a little extra work, you can make it look truly great. Adding paint or veneer can make a huge difference.

Choosing the finish for your unfinished wood wine rack can be difficult if you have many preferences. The best that you can do, if you are determined to finish the wine rack is to base the finish on the room where the wine rack is most likely to be placed. If the kitchen or dining room is basically a less formal room, the unfinished wood wine rack can be painted whatever color you think will blend well or complement the room.

Another option is to varnish or tint your unfinished wood wine rack. There are many different colors and shades of varnish and tint which you can use. Again, the way to go here is to match or compliment the color scheme of the room where you want to keep your wine rack. If you don’t yet know which room will be your new wine rack’s home, then paint it any color or use any tint or varnish which appeals to you.

There is also the option of not painting or varnishing your unfinished wood wine rack and instead sanding and buffing the rack to a smooth finish. If you have used wood with an attractive color and grain, then this is a good way to add a final touch to your unfinished wood wine rack. If you paint wood, you’ll cover up the grain pattern; and tint or varnish will change the color of the wood – so if your wine rack is made from high quality wood, this may be the best option.

If you’re wondering what to do with that unfinished wood wine rack you’ve been working on, these are all possibilities. However, there are many others, so don’t be afraid to get creative with your wine rack.
