Store-bought hanging kitchen racks can be quite expensive. Manitoba area maker Mark Reynolds came up with this fantastic hanging pot rack using an IKEA trivet, a couple of drawer handles, and some scrap wood. For about $60 in parts you can make two rather handsome racks that seem sturdy enough to hold just about anything you need in the kitchen. [via IKEA Hacks]

    Wonder how the pots hang on these…

    1. You put hooks that hang from the metal bars.

    You didn’t build that!

      You didn’t read that!

  3. Where do you attach the chain?

    This looks great, thanks for sharing this idea. Have you had any problems with the bars bending? Most of my pots are cast iron and I wonder if the bars are strong enough or if I should add another cross piece in the middle.
