When looking for a hanging potrack for my kitchen, I was repeatedly disheartened at the high prices. Fortunately, a trip to my backyard resulted in a flash of inspiration. I asked my husband to cut down the old ladder resting against the back fence. We added hooks and chains and hung above the kitchen island. You can see the results below. It was practically free and adds a fun touch to our rustic-feel kitchen.
As for my question, I’d love to know how/where you store your pots and pans if you DON’T have a potrack. I’ve had my hanging rack for many years now, but I’ve found two pendant lights I’d really like to hang over the island. Plus, I’ve been enjoying a more clean, less cluttered look, lately. I’d love to remove the potrack and put up the pendant lights, but I fear I’ll really regret it as it’s SOOO handy to have the pots and pans so easy to grab. So, what do you do with yours?
