8 - eye screws (e-screws)
6 - S screws
Needle-lose Pliers (n-pliers)

Start by measuring and marking the spaces were you'll need to pre-drill your holes.
When drilling the 2 holes on the top make sure not to drill to close to the end leave yourself a inch or two of space. Then screw in your e-screws and with your n- pliers pull your e-screw slightly open and slide in your chain.
At the bottom of your 1 1/2" wooden beam drill 6 holes. Make sure to give yourself enough space to hang your pots and pans. Then screw in your e-screw and hang your s-hooks. With your n- pliers pinch your s-hooks shut.
With a stud finer or your hand find the wood beam in your ceiling and screw in your ceiling hooks.
When complete hang your pot rack from the ceiling and your done.

    Love this idea, but if you don't have an opening above your cabinets you can mount a curtain rod, use O rings and S hooks and it looks great too.

    Years ago I did this with old shutters. Hung the shutters from the ceiling and then put hooks in them and hung my pots. I loved it and I thought I was a "genius". Would like to do it now but my ceiling is too low.
