The first project we've undertaken since moving into the Country Cottage
has been building an island in the kitchen. The base cabinets are complete
and the counter top has been ordered. Now I'm looking for a unique and
unusual pot and pan rack. What do you think about these ideas?
Vintage railing can be cut into many different sizes.
Old windows are easy to find and are fairly affordable.
Don't you love this darling antique sled?!
And how cute is this vintage wrought iron bird cage?
The painted tree limb might be a little too organic for me.
I'd be a little worried about keeping
the pots balanced on this bicycle wheel.
We'd have to reinforce the ceiling to carry the weight
of a wrought iron fence but what a cool idea.
Hands down, this old commercial baker's tray is one of my
favorites. I like the way the light fixture hangs through it.
Repurposing metal wall art into a
pots and pans rack is quite ingenious.
Antique wood ladders make charming
racks and also provide additional storage:
Golly, these pans look awfully un-used. Maybe I need a rack that
is so unusual that it will take the attention off of my ugly old pans!
The more pictures I see of old ladders
used as pot racks, the more I'm interested.
Here's a very young Martha Stewart standing beneath
the big daddy of all pot racks. Wonder if she still has it?!
If you can think of other items that could be repurposed
into a rack, let me know. And have a great weekend!
