PVC pipes are cheap and incredibly versatile. Pick up some 4-inch PVC pipe, and cut it to length using a hacksaw. After you sand the edges smooth, clean the outside of the pipe with acetone. Prime then paint your desired color. Join the pipes using Velcro straps, and you have a quick and easy wine rack.
