DIY Pot Rack

I've been dying to have a pot rack for years now. I finally convinced my husband what a great idea it was after he saw how great the peg rack that I had him make me looked. So, off to Home Depot we went. We bought a 6 foot piece of pine for under $6.00 and we bought a package of 1 1/2" cup hooks.

To start Lay your wood on a surface to paint or stain it and get to work. It took about 20 minutes or so for the paint to dry.

Here it is all painted. I like to put a thin layer of paint on so that the wood grain still shows thru so it's more like a very dark stain.

Next comes the hard part, though it's not all that tough. Measure out where you would like to put the hooks so that they are all even.

Then all you need to do if find your studs, grab a level, and hang your rack. Voila, a DIY pot rack for under $20.00.
