Step-by-Step Instructions:

Attach the Shelf

The shelf assembly can be attached on either the left or right side of the wine rack assembly.

Use the layout in Image 1 as a guide for cutting the shelf brackets to shape. Drill two pocket holes on the 2-1/4-inch side. Be sure to drill the holes so that one shelf bracket is a mirror image of the other.

Position the shelf brackets 3/4 inch from the front and back of the assembly and flush with the bottom of the narrow glass shelf, and attach using glue and 1-1/4-inch pocket hole screws.

Use the layout in Image 2 as a guide for cutting the shelf to shape.

Position the shelf on top of the shelf brackets and flush with the front and back of the wine rack assembly. Attach to the shelf brackets using glue and 1-1/4-inch brads.

Apply Finishing Touches

Fill any nail holes and prime and paint the wine rack as desired.

You can attach the wine rack directly to studs in the wall, or you can use cabinet hangers. When attaching to wall studs, be sure to drill countersunk holes in the back to match with the spacing of the studs. Use at least 3-inch-long wood screws.

For cabinet hangers: Attach two cabinet hangers on the back, and attach their corresponding hangers on the wall per the manufacturer's directions. Place the wine rack on the cabinet hangers.
