Works for Me~ Ladder Potrack

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.

Using what I have works for me. To see more Works for Me Wednesday tips (and offer your own advice on this Backwards Edition) visit We Are That Family.

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?

Sneak Peek Monday~ HALF OFF SALE!

Getting organized doesn’t have to be overwhelming or hard. . . take a sneak peek into my LET’S GET ORGANIZED FOR FISCAL FITNESS magazine today! For THIS WEEK ONLY we will be offering this back issue for HALF THE NORMAL PRICE (price adjustment will be reflected upon checkout)!

Is your attic or basement cluttered with items that you don’t use, but just can’t quite part with? How about your garage, closets or kitchen cupboards? Maybe you spent a lot of money on something and think you must find a way to use it sometime. Or maybe it came from dear Aunt Mary and you just can’t toss or donate it with a good conscience. We all have them – the dopey looking lamps, random serving bowls, no-longer-the-right-color curtains. . . there’s no end to the variety of “stuff” we hang on to for a rainy day. Well, take heart and get your umbrella out – that rainy day is here. We’re going to take on those oddball objects and see what we can do with them.

As the saying goes, “Everything old is new again” and that includes the “make do” mentality of our grandparents. We call it something different now. The buzzwords of this generation are “repurposing” and “upcycling.” Repurposing means to use an item in a new and different way, maybe changing or adapting it to better suit your purposes. Up cycling refers to using an item that would have been destined for the trash, or maybe was already there, to make a new object that can be used and appreciated.

This exciting trend is taking our culture by storm, and I think it’s fantastic! Once you get used to this kind of thinking you’ll see potential in just about everything. But don’t say we didn’t warn you – it can be addicting! So, how about some inspiration? You may be familiar with, the giant online store for handmade items. Try typing “repurposed” or “up cycled” as a search criteria here. You’ll be amazed by the gorgeous variety of results. From vintage spoons to Scrabble tiles, old bedspreads to broken bottles, creative minds and hands are producing treasures!
