DIY Pot Rack Ideas

Today I want to share with you some DIY pot rack ideas that offer you stylish options to keep your pots and pans out of the way but easily within reach. I’ve been amazed at some of the ordinary items the creative minds on the “interweb” have repurposed for pot and pan storage. If you have tall ceilings, you have the option of going with a hanging pot rack. I’ve found some really cool ideas for these.  For smaller kitchens or those with standard height ceilings, I’ve found some great ideas for you too. Here are 10 of my favorites that I hope will give you some inspiration for your kitchen storage. Enjoy!

      Glad you like them, Susie! If you do the sled pot rack, you must send me a picture. I’d love to see it! That’s one of my favorites, but would look out of place here in Florida.

    I just love them all. But alas, I have such a tiny kitchen. I think I may be able to use the coat rack one. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I like the coat rack the best. My kitchen is so small I have no wall area to utilize, nor ceiling.
