Don’t forget to swing by and enter my giveaway it ends today!!!
I’ve been contemplating on a better way to store my pots and pans since our kitchen is small and I don’t want to stack them in a cupboard. So I started looking into pot rack ideas here’s a few ideas I liked:
My husband didn’t like the valance idea because it blocked out what little light we do get from our window. He really liked this idea:
I really like this idea of using a coat rack especially since it incorporated a place for the lids too…
however, I did not have a coat rack nor did I want to spend any money to get one. So I sort of incorporated all three ideas together in creating this…
I think they turned out great. I’m loving the brown and green colors too, which match our dishware set and I didn’t even have to go out and buy the paper I already had it in my stash.
I just cut up some scrap boards into 4.5” by 3.75” rectangles. I then attached the scrapbook paper to the board using Elmer’s glue. Yep, you read that right I did not use Mod Podge (ran out of this on my last project). The glue worked wonderfully, and I think it’s the best job I’ve ever done. Usually I get a little bit of bubbles or wrinkles but this time I didn’t have any of that on any of them. I also ran the edge of a spatula across the surface to help smooth out the paper and remove the bubbles.
Then I brushed up the sides with some brown acrylic paint and applied a top coat of Elmer’s glue to seal it. I then drilled a small hole about an inch from the bottom and screwed in the hanging thing (these were in a wall hanging kit we bought a few years ago). Total cost for this project was FREE since I already had everything I needed around my house!!!
I’m loving the look and functionality of my new kitchen decor!!!
