DIY Pot Rack

Our kitchen is SUPER small and very limited in storage... so a few months ago we began thinking about how to expand our storage capabilities. We have nearly an entire wall that is empty and a cabinet FULL of pots and pans so we were thinking pot rack. Well the pot racks we liked were either a) too large for the kitchen or b) more than we wanted to pay. So we thought "hey, we could build one..." so we went to Google and searched out some ideas. There are a lot of good ones out there, and this is ours.

Josh's parents had spare rebar at their house and we cut it to the sizes we wanted. (If you don't have any spare lying around you can find it at any home improvement store and
 it is really inexpensive and we only used one full length bar). We spray painted the rebar black to give it a more finished look. 

The only other pieces we used were u-hooks to put in the wall and lay the rebar on, s-hooks to hang the pans on the rebar, and leather if we needed to adjust the length or size for the hook. 

Total project cost about $25.... 


  1. Imagine that! Rebar, something you would throw away when done with it. It was saved for a reason, and this is it!

  2. In many kitchens, cabinet space is at a premium, and much of that valuable space is taken up by an unwieldy assortment of pots and pans. Even worse, cabinets are far from the ideal place to store your cookware.

  3. You may wonder about the origins of pot racks and might even think that these handy storage devices are a recent discovery for saving much needed kitchen space
