My kitchen has been in serious need of some organizational help. I love to cook and am on a mission to make it easier to store and find my kitchen supplies.

This week I tackled all of the cooking utensils that used to get jammed in a drawer or in the jar I kept on the counter. I wanted something that was easy to get at but didn't take up a lot of counter space.

Then I saw this great idea on pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/396246467185635146/ in case you want to see the original) where they had de-constructed a lazy susan to make a rotating, hanging storage rack...and I thought it was the perfect solution!

I bought the lazy susan hardware (very inexpensive)!

Then cut a piece of melamine. Since it was going under my kitchen cabinets, I didn't really care if it was round or real wood which made the construction process much easier (If you use a round piece of wood, you have to drill holes in it right above the holes in the lazy susan hardware in order to attach it to the bottom of the cabinet).

Attach the lazy susan hardware to the square piece of melamine.

Add some hooks.

Hang it under the cabinet using 1/2" screws.

Now I have all kinds of easy-to-access cooking utensil storage that is right by the stove and doesn't take up space on the counter top...which also makes the counter top much easier to clean (an added bonus). Even better...the whole project cost less than $10 and took less than an hour to put together.

Update: Because of the overhang on my cabinets, you can't see the lazy susan hardware at all. For more details (and links to some of my other DIY kitchen organization projects), click the link below.

    Couldn't you just use an old lazy Susan and attach it to a piece of wood? Then attach all to the cabinet?

      If you rent, you might try an shower rod with larger hooks. Then you don't have to worry about filling in holes when you move out. You can get it tight enough to hold the weight of the utensils.

    Do you have an easy inexpensive way to hang jewelry?

      I took an old picture frame actually it’s a small mirror. I then tie cording around it in several different places. I have at least 50 pairs of airings hanging from it. Works wonderful.
