I've always wanted a pot rack in my kitchen but my ceilings are to low to use a regular pot rack. I decided to re-purpose a metal motel clothes rack to use as a pot rack above my sink. I started by taking the front rod off that the clothes hangers slid in. Then I flipped the rod around so the circles were facing down and screwed it back together. I found several S hooks out in my husbands shop, S hooks from broken bungee cords and later I bought smaller hooks. As you can see my pots, pans, colander and much more hangs on my pot rack. The only downside to this rack is that the top isn't flat so certain items will fall right off. Lids can be stored on the top for convenience. The rack has four bars so I can move items around, hang larger items or smaller items and add more vintage utensils. This project only costs me about $7.00 ($5.00 for the rack and $2.00 for the S hooks). I hope this inspires you to re-purpose and item for your house.
