DIY Pot Rack

While scrolling Instagram, various times I have come across Devol’s beautiful kitchens. The rich colors and design draw me in every 👏 single 👏 time 👏! The price of someone coming to my home and recreating this look, for me, is the equivalent of a cross to Dracula- REPULSIVE!!! There is no way I would ever pay those high dollar design/material fees! 😩... Nonetheless I still tease myself by drooling-I mean scrolling through their wonderful work.... My recent favorite was a kitchen with a brass pot rack over gorgeous green tiles. The contrast was eye-catching and fantastic. Though I saved the photo for inspiration, for whatever reason, it never occurred to me to recreate the pot rack. Then one day I had an epiphany of how to recreate this look using supplies that I already had on hand (I can already hear the cheers from fellow “cheapskates”!- you are my people!!!). Here is how I did it!

The Inspiration

Isn’t it beautiful?! I could just stare at this picture all day!

The Inspiration


What you will need
  • Curtain rod and mounting hardware
  • S hooks
What you will need
  • Spray paint (I used Rustoleum’s Metallic Finish in the color Gold )

****Invest in one of these spray paint nozzles. It will save your hands if you plan to do any spray painting projects (ask me how I know!😩)!****

After cleaning the dust off of my items (I have had these in “The Stash” for a very long time), I gave them 3 solid coats of paint.

I could hardly contain my excitement to get this up on the rich green shiplap wall in my kitchen. (Don’t be impatient like me... allow the items to cure for a time after they have dried!)

My idea was starting to take shape! Eeeek! 😆

Later that day (like 5 minutes after taking the previous clip! Did I mention that I am impatient?! 🤦🏾‍♀️) I gently (because... impatient) placed my pans on the rack. Now... If I had the gorgeous copper pans from the inspiration pic, this would look that much better... but I am using what I have, and I feel these work just fine... (for now... because you already know I am looking into high temperature copper-colored paint for the exterior of the pans!!!)

I have also placed my lids above the rod. I am honestly not sure how I feel about this particular look but... mehhh... it works for now!



Dupe....DONE!!! 🤗
