DIY Kitchen Pot Rack Tutorial
Sheesh! Those old pictures are horrid!!
We had an IKEA pot rack sitting in a box for the longest time. When we first moved into our house over 6 years ago, I had purchased one, but was afraid to put it up and put holes in our new walls and ceiling.
I almost gave the set to Goodwill…..I think at one point I even tried painting it?? It was a miserable FAIL! This was before I knew of the wonder of spraypaint!
Thankfully, we kept it because I was able to reclaim some of its parts!
The metal bars of the pot rack are from the IKEA kit….honestly, we never use the actual rails because my hubby is TOO tall. At 6’5″ he hits his head on the pots and that makes for an unhappy hubby!
Instead, I just use “S” hooks from the hardware store and hang the pots off the cross pieces of my window….no injured heads that way!
To hang to the window from the ceiling, we also just used pieces from the hardware store.
We screwed eye hooks into the window and ceiling and then bought inexpensive chain and clasp at our local True Value store. The hardware probably cost under $5.00!
It was a quick and easy project and because the window was free along the side of the road, the total cost was under $10.00!
What have you made with old windows?
