Declutter Kitchen Countertop With A Curtain Rod

1,232,652 Views
I don't know about you, but I can't stand clutter on my counters, especially in my small apartment kitchen. As much as I love looking at pictures of my family while cooking I needed a solution to get things up and off the counter.
Time: 10 Minutes Cost: $10 Difficulty: Easy
I started my project at Target. I found a simple curtain rod that is long enough for my counter (I recommend measuring before shopping ) and two command hooks that hold over 3 pounds. I also chose hooks that match the finish of the rod.
Next, I measured the placement for the two command hooks and hung the rod at my desired height.
Using s-hooks I arranged my usual countertop items - k-cups, mugs, pictures and my little plant. I had to remove the decorative ends on my rod because of the lack of space between the rod and wall. If you don't live in an apartment and can make as many holes in your wall as you want, then you could screw in the normal hooks included to hang the rod.
It's as easy as that! I love that I can change out the items on the rod; adding more mugs or pictures. This would also be awesome for hanging herbs for an easy reach when cooking. If you are an apartment dweller with little cabinet space, this is a must have! This post is inspired by: Judy http://www.hometalk.com/9786789/easy-decorati...>

    Cute idea but please stop using the phrase 'I'm stealing this'. Maybe a pet peeve but it angers me if someone says to me, "I'm stealing a pen". My usual reply is "You aren't stealing, you just told me. Ask and it's yours"

    We did something similar with a magnetic curtain rod on the counter side of our frig. Now all those large tools for cooking hang there instead of in a drawer. Works great and since my frig is black and the tools are also black, they don't even show up as clutter.

      No, and of course we leave the S hook there for when the tool gets replaced.
