The Best Pot Lid Organizer!

Cabinets are so hard to keep organized. I’m always looking for great organization ideas. While looking around on the internet I saw people using the unused space between the cabinet door and their shelves for lids, and I thought, "what a great organization solution! I've got to try this."

We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

All you need are some command hooks. It's really simple, and you can basically buy them anywhere. I got mine from Amazon!

Here’s my messy cabinet. See how unorganized it is? Step 2: Prepare Your Sticky Hooks

I peeled the front paper off of the sticker and attached it to the hook, following the package’s instructions. Then I peeled the back off of it, so it was ready to stick. Step 3: Use the Lid to Measure

I placed the hooks onto the lid and then placed the lid where I wanted it to go (where it’s handle hits between the shelves) and pressed lightly. This way I didn't have to guess the distance between the hooks, and I knew it would fit. Step 4: Press Firmly and Wait

I pressed the hooks firmly to the cabinet door (without the lids, of course). Then I waited 30 minutes before using them, as per the instructions on the package. Step 5: Hang your Lid

Lastly, I just slipped my lid into it’s custom holder. Ta Da!

The great thing about command hooks is I can change the locations whenever I want, because they're so easily movable. I think I'm going to do this for all my pots and pans.

    I watched the video because I wanted to see how the doors close with lids on them...?My doors close flush with my shelves. How does this work?

    I see that you have glass lids hanging by command hooks. I use a lot of the command hooks, but I would never hang glass by one because once In while it does come off the wall or cabinet.

    I used C/H to help support this heavy lid on the side of my fridge. Magnets with eye bolts, a painted dowel, and end pieces. I found a long tube in my craft stuff. Have no idea what it was for but it was perfect size to cut small pieces for ends of dowel so it couldn’t slip out of the eye bolts. I have had other lids inside cabinet doors for a long time. Have to admit it would have been very helpful to have an extra hand to help with placement if C/H.
