My kitchen is small and cabinet space is limited. I wanted a pot rack beside my stove but they are expensive and most require more space than I have.
I took one of those metal wire shelving units that I had and was mainly being used a junk collector in the laundry room. I removed 2 of the legs and all but the top shelf. The 24" long edge of the shelf is screwed to the wall above the counter by my stove and the front legs rest on the counter. It stands about 28" high. I fashioned big s-hooks from some heavy duty clothes hangers and dipped them in silver paint. the s-hooks fit securely on the wires of the shelf and my pots (even my heavy cast iron skillets) hang securely on it. The lids rest against the wall with the edges sliding down between the shelf wires to hold them in place. Since the crossbraces under the wires are about 6" apart nothing can slip down very far. It is so handy to just reach out and grab the pan I need instead of having to squat down and dig through the cabinet to find what I want and now I have ample room in the cabinet for those awkward sized canners, dutch ovens, roasters, baking pans. etc.
Even if you had to buy one I often see those small shelf units on sale of about $15.00 and they are designed to hold about 100lb wt. so they are sturdy.
