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.
Declutter Kitchen Countertop With A Curtain Rod
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

I did this for my pots and pans! I made a floating shelf and attached 2 curtains with eye bolts. Added S hooks and then scrubbed the bottom of my pots and pans so I wouldn't be ashamed when I hung them. I had forgotten one skillet had a copper bottom! My cuissonart pots had small handle openings so I attached chain connectors.
