Show & Tell: Progress: Pot rack

Tater-baby (my youngest) asked what do I blog about,

"Progress" I said, "I blog about progress"

My sweet hubby bought this at a SUPER discount last year for our new home (because of the lack of cabinets, and we have always wanted one.)
Taylor-is it possible your are ACTUALLY looking at the directions????
Actually he's just looking at the pictures-what a GUY!
(Check out the beat up box, THAT happened in storage)
 

Down came the clock (moved to another side of the room:)
 

TA-DA!!! They took the lights out of the pot rack to use over the island later. It also leaves more room for pots and pans. (need me some more hooks:)

Wasted wall space is now 'productive' storage space! I call that progress!!!

Pot racks are SO cool! I want one but my ceiling is so vaulted that it'd be wierd, I think, in my kitchen. But I'd have to replace my outdated lighting first anyhow....first things first, yaknow. lol

How wonderful. I always wanted a pot rack too. But never had a place to hang one. Have a great day.

Gail said...

I have only had a love of pot racks. I bought one two years ago and it still resides in its wrappings.
I am going to get creative and find a place to hang that baby. Trouble is, over the stove they would be covered with mess and I have a stove hood there. Any suggestions?

We thought about getting a pot rack but at 5'2 it would have to hang awful low for me to reach it. Yours looks great!

Love the pot rack. I have always wanted one, but my hubs is so tall...I would never be able to reach them! Have a wonderful weekend!

Wish I had a pot rack like that.I am getting new cabinets so maybe I could ask for a pot rack to go with the new cabinets.

I have always longed for a pot rack. Never had the space or appropriate arrangement for it though. I like yours.

Great progress, and at least your dh admits that instructions exist...even if only for the pics!

Jules said...

Awesome! I have always wanted one of those, but I'll probably wait a few years until we remodel our kitchen one day. Thanks for sharing! :o)

Joelle said...

Very fun! My kitchen isn't laid out well for one - and I'm short so not ideal :) But I love them in other people's places.
