I was so excited last summer when I found a brand new Ikea wrought iron pot rack at a garage sale for $3. I got it home and then was stumped about where I was going to hang it. Finally I hung it over the sink and was thrilled with it.
I began trying to find the perfect things to hang from it and I didn't like anything. Sigh...
Then Pinterest entered my life and I found lots and lots of pot racks that looked fabulous. Why couldn't I figure out how to make mine look like those ones??!!
Last month I bought new lights for over the sink and the pot rack didn't work at all anymore so I took it down. Boo!!
First thing this morning I had a brainwave. Why don't I just hang it on the wall instead? I whipped off the ceiling supports and decided to give up the better part of my chalkboard wall so I could hang it right beside my stove. It was sure hard going to the office for the day and not being able to work on my project. As soon as I got home, I got out the drill and attached the supports to the wall.
Then I really got into the swing of things, using the hooks to hang knives and mixing and measuring spoons, herbs to dry and the like. It's so handy!!
I also decided I wanted some task lighting on this side of my kitchen so I picked up an Ikea desk lamp and clamped it onto the pot rack using zip ties. I painted out the black chalkboard to brighten my kitchen up and I'm in love!
I created this wooden herb crate knockoff sign from a piece of wood and some vinyl letters. Come check it out HERE
