Declutter Kitchen Countertop With A Curtain Rod

1.2M 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...>

    What a great idea. I'm thinking sewing room to hang rulers, scissors and other sewing supplies. Different weight command hooks but...... could be used on wall, doors or cabinets. Thank you.

    Looking at the wall behind the rod, I wonder if a spring loaded curtain rod could have worked? If so, no need for command hooks, etc., and project would be finished in a few seconds. Still, though, love your idea for decluttering the counter! Going
