I sort of described in my previous post of keeping my (teeny tiny) kitchen organized that I bought this organizer intending to use it for my hair styling tools. Until I got home and had this brilliant idea to use it for all the things you see in the picture above.
Since I get people asking me about this wall hanging pots-spices-Mittens-&-Hot-Pads organizer all the time, this is the perfect time to write it all down in a pretty post for the world to see.
What You’ll Need:
- A wall hanging/cabinet hanging organizer: usually for saran wrap or hair styling tools. You’ll want it to have wires like you see here. Here’s something similar. Although it’s mostly meant for spices, but would work:
Or you could use this thing:
Your spices wouldn’t stay in this one, but who says you have to have spices??? Be creative!
- S hooks (whichever size you like. I used one of the smallest sizes).
- Oven mittens
- Hot Pads
- Screw Driver (borrow one if you ain’t got one).
- Drill bit (or something that will help you poke a hole in the wall big enough for the anchor).
- Anchors (if you do not use these then it’s pretty much guaranteed that this thing will fall right out of your wall because it won’t be able to hold the weight of your stuff).
- A hot male
How To Hang It: (Disclaimer: this is a rough “recipe” of how to hang this. Since I mostly watched hubby do it, I am not responsible for any failure to hang it or injuries. Take a look at what you have, use your common sense, and adjust accordingly).
- Poke a hole in your wall using a drill bit just a little smaller than the circumference of your anchor. We didn’t have drill bits at the time so my husband (this is why I say to get a hot male…they’re so much fun to watch doing projects like this!) simply used his universal tool that had something sharp and small enough to poke a hole in the wall.
- Insert your anchors.
- Match up the holes provided on the organizer with the anchors and drill a screw through each simultaneously.
- Repeat until you get ‘em all (should be at least 4).
- Put your spices in the bottom rack.
- Pot covers in the top rack.
- Use S hooks to hang your pots, oven mittens, and hot pads.
Via la! Now you no longer have to go digging for your pots because they’re all right there! Plus your spices are in one, nicely contained area out of the cabinets allowing for a lot of extra space.
