Would you judge me if I was one of thee most unorganized people on the planet? 'Cause I am.
Consequently, I've been cooking up (pun intended) some ideas around my kitchen for a little better workspace, if you will.
Cabinet where my pots and pans reside? Won't close- piles of pots come crashing out- disaster/catastrophe. Can't show it to you. I won't. Not for a hundred dollars. (I can be bought-- keep going up.)
Been toying with the idea of a pot rack, actually. Hubs said we'd need new, nicer pots and pans to display, though.
Why, Jeffro? What's wrong with our pans?
Is there a problem, here?
Anywho, I had pros and cons with the pot rack idea, and so I sat on it for quite some time.
Pros? Obvious. They're cool. More space. They're cool.
Cons? Refer to above picture, I don't want a head knocker, or what feels like a head knocker, plus I was concerned it'd "close in" my kitchen a bit.
And you know me. I took the plunge anyways. Thought I'd let ya know if my concerns were real. I like to think of it as taking one for the team.
Couple facts about this small project:
Asked the Boy Toy to find the ceiling joists for me. Why?
This is how the hubs finds joists:
(runs stud finder along ceiling-- makes his marks): "Found them. Drill here, here, here, and here." (drops stud finder and walks away)
me: "Um, I think there's one here. Maybe. Let's check again. One more time. One more time. . . "
Be advised that this project makes your work space and your head look like this:
and knowing is half the battle.
I also want you to know a couple more things: pot racks can be expensive.
This one's 'snot. Got it here. And I do like it.
Survey says? Not a head knocker. Doesn't close in the space. Instant organization. Love. Score.
