The Best Pot Lid Organizer!

1 Material

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."

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 the Dollar Store!

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 love your project! I am wondering what your cabinets are made of and the shelving inside? Would you mind sharing? Thank you! MBC
    • Shawna Bailey Shawna Bailey on Feb 05, 2017
      The cabinets are sandwich wood but the doors are painted oak. I did this to save money when we redid our kitchen
  • Sharon Sharon on Feb 02, 2017
    I love your pull out shelves. where did yu get them? what brand are they? thanks!
  • Edie Freas Edie Freas on Feb 02, 2017
    How did you make the shelves in this photo?
    • Shawna Bailey Shawna Bailey on Feb 05, 2017
      Hi a carpenter friend made them inside an existing cupboard. I believe he got all the hardware form Lowes.
    • Barbara W VanSchaick Barbara W VanSchaick on Jun 08, 2017
      You are more than talented. I can't imagine this working on my cabinets. But, I will certainly try. Thanks a bunch.
  • Jean H Jean H on Dec 08, 2017
    Where did you get your pull out shelves?
    • Joan Hedden Joan Hedden on Dec 08, 2017
      I got mine at Home Depot or Lowes. I installed them myself and saved a bundle!! We had a quote from a custom company of $800 per cabinet. I did all 5 cabinets, double shelves for $500. You can do this!!
    • Michelle Dowdy Michelle Dowdy on Dec 08, 2017
      Thank you Joan Hedden! I have pondered doing it myself. Did you have to cut out the existing shelf in your cabinets or install one on top? Once I have that figured out I'm going to try it myself.
  • Car28104423 Car28104423 on Dec 08, 2017
    When you move the command hooks to relocate them, will it pull the paint off the wall?
    • Leslie Leslie on Dec 08, 2017
      Carolyn, no. I am not sure about freshly painted surfaces you would have to check their website for that info. I do know one thing that I have encountered, if the area you are sticking the Command Hooks on is not super clean and devoid of possible film then the sticker part may fail. I have been using them for years and I love them.
    • Tressa Myers Brueggert Tressa Myers Brueggert on Dec 08, 2017
      I am moving into senior housing and I was asked to please not use command hooks because it not only takes the paint but also the drywall. They would rather I use screws or nails it's easier to repair..
    • Elaine Hassen Elaine Hassen on Dec 08, 2017
      I had pictures on the wall with command hooks and when I moved only one of the many I removed also took paint off the wall. It is possible this could happen, but not always. You have to remove them properly.
    • Melody Melody on Dec 08, 2017
      I’ve found that you absolutely have to follow the package instructions to remove or it does remove the paint....
    • Marlene Taylor Grexton Marlene Taylor Grexton on Dec 08, 2017
      I have found if you use command hooks on fresh paint it can and will remove the paint if the paint is cured for at least a year or more they work great if you’re applying them on older paint use just a little alcohol to clean the surface and let it dry then apply I have found this to work very well
    • Dale Dale on Dec 08, 2017
      I think the type or brand of paint might make a difference. I recently had a hook fall off the wall and take the paint with it. The paint is 10 years old. This also happened when the paint was only 5-6 years old.
    • RBE RBE on Dec 08, 2017
      I guess I am *odd man out then* I use command hooks everywhere and on everything. I follow directions in pulling the tape from the Bottom as explained and Viola!! No muss No fuss! Good luck however 🙃
  • Helene Delgado Helene Delgado on Dec 08, 2017
    Will the lid placement interfere with the door closing?
    • Pam Davis Pam Davis on Dec 08, 2017
      I was thinking the same thing. The lids have to have space inside for the door to close?
    • Kelli Kelli on Dec 08, 2017
      she said she placed the handles of the lids so the doors could close.
    • Joanne Joanne on Dec 08, 2017
      I did this but my door would not hang right. Would not closed all the way and nothing was blocking it.
    • Gabe Hernandez Gabe Hernandez on Dec 09, 2017
      Adjust your hinges
    • Gracefullikeagazelle Gracefullikeagazelle on Dec 09, 2017
      Lid placement won't interfere with the door closing if you plan where to position the hooks before sticking them on the door. You'll need enough space between the door and the shelf to begin with otherwise this is not a project compatible with your kitchen cupboard system. You'll also need to ensure that the lid handle will fit BETWEEN shelves so it won't bump against anything. Do a dry run for perfect placement of the hooks and lids.
    • Gracefullikeagazelle Gracefullikeagazelle on Dec 09, 2017
      What is that suggestion pertaining to with regards to this project?
  • Jan Jan on Dec 08, 2017
    Will the drawers pull all the way out with the lids in place? My doors dont open very wide so Im not sure if this will work in my space.
  • Rob27211887 Rob27211887 on Dec 08, 2017
    Didn't they fall out because of no hole to insert the hook into?
    • Barbara Riccio Barbara Riccio on Dec 08, 2017
      instead of putting the hooks right across from eachother (as shown at about 8PM and 4PM) mount them at around 8PM and 2PM and they won't slip out.
    • RBE RBE on Dec 08, 2017
      Hook it on the lip of the top of the cover.
  • Triciann waltonhenson Triciann waltonhenson on Dec 08, 2017
    Love the command hook idea for lids, but I am admiring your metal drawers as well! Did they come with your home?

  • Saysweetie Saysweetie on Dec 08, 2017
    I have stainless lids with a curved edge.. I would need a inch hook?
  • Abfoster59 Abfoster59 on Dec 08, 2017
    For most people with regular cabinets, wouldn't the lids be too thick and hit the shelves? I broke down and purchased a hanging pot holder and it's the best to hang pots and lids.
    • Janet Engelhard Bachtel Janet Engelhard Bachtel on Dec 08, 2017
      You would have to position where the handles are on lids in the opening of your shelf. This is what she did, if you notice the door with all lids on it. I love this idea & going to try it for more storage in my kitchen cabinets.
    • Leonora Kain Leonora Kain on Dec 08, 2017
      Abfoster - I know what you mean. My cabinet shelves go all the way to the door. Even with the lid knobs in between shelves, I would not be able to close the door.

    • Terri Terri on Dec 08, 2017
      This is how mine are too. I dont think it would work but it sure is an awesome idea...I am going to try and see if there is some other place n the kitchen that this would work for me.
  • Tammy Miller Tammy Miller on Dec 08, 2017
    I can't tell from the photo. How many hooks did you use per lid?
    • There are two hooks at the bottom of the lid as needed.
      Two are enough as you can see that it holds them on the door when placed properly.

    • Carol Carol on Dec 08, 2017
      Looks like she used two on the bottom side corners of each lid Tammy. They are stuck just off to the side on the bottom. Maybe if you zoom in on your screen you can see them better. I hope that helps you find them!
  • Olh28831386 Olh28831386 on Dec 08, 2017
    What kind of cabinets do you have and where did you get them? They are very tall and I like the shelve construction with the pole to keep the pots from falling out. Thanks.
  • Faye Faye on Dec 08, 2017
    Looks like a great idea. I would like to know about your shelves...where can I get some???
  • Del28792236 Del28792236 on Dec 08, 2017
    Do the slide out shelves hit your lids when you pull them out?
    • Ellen Perkins Ellen Perkins on Dec 08, 2017
      She mentioned she made sure the handle went between the slid out shelves. There must be clearance in front for the lid.
    • Bess Bess on Dec 08, 2017
      I was wondering the same thing as you. It doesn't look like there is enough clearance there especially if the top of the lids flop forward. Easy solution is she removes the lids when she pulls the drawer out.
    • Autumn Alzate Autumn Alzate on Dec 08, 2017
      That's a great question! I think it would depend on how far your door opens also!
  • Mable Mable on Dec 08, 2017
    Has anyone tried this with larger metal lids? I did and the clips aren't letting the lid hang properly. The hangers are all in plastic casing so you can't try them. I just spent $4 plus for 4 hooks and they won't work for my lids
    • RBE RBE on Dec 08, 2017
      Magnalite lids don’t have a lip, so yeah - command wouldn’t work.
    • Katie Grow Katie Grow on Dec 08, 2017
      Get bigger hooks that go around the lid
    • Carolyn from NH Carolyn from NH on Dec 08, 2017
      Some command hooks packages have the amount of weight the hooks will hold. Which is helpful for this type of project. Great project.
      Carolyn from NH
    • Mable Mable on Dec 08, 2017
      The weight isn't the issue, it's the thickness and curve of the metal lids. The "hook" isn't deep enough to allow the lid down into it enough to hold. I was able to hang my metal lids on the metal hook type command and then I had to add some of that rubber drawer liner (using command tapes with velcro so I can remove the liner to clean it and the cabinet door when necessary) The liner cushions the lids against the door and stops the banging. It's working, for now.
  • Joanne Yetman Joanne Yetman on Dec 08, 2017
    What about the tension bars how would that work show that idea
  • Shari Fryrear Shari Fryrear on Dec 08, 2017
    Maybe I missed something, are you using two command stickers for each lid? Would 1 work if the lids have a rim that would hook over the sticker?
    • LIz Nolan LIz Nolan on Dec 08, 2017
      the door movement would dislodge a flapping lid
    • Kathy A Kathy A on Dec 08, 2017
      My old Revereware pans have a definite curled edge; I know one would work for them.
    • Cheryl Glodowski Cheryl Glodowski on Dec 09, 2017
      I did something similar 40 years ago. My metal lids (can't use with smooth glass ones) had a rim. I simply tapped tiny nails into the cabinet door...usually one large and one small lid would fit per cabinet door. The nails (only about 1/3-1/2" long and light weight. I never had a problem with them coming loose or bending as the lids are light. Of course, they would not tap through the outer door either. I even tapped some into the side walls of the cabinet. It worked great for me, but I am definitely going to give the stick-ons a try!!
    • Ing21955678 Ing21955678 on Dec 09, 2017
      Looking at the picture, the lids are resting in the curve of the hooks, which are spread far enough apart to keep the lids from flapping as the door is opened and closed.

  • Suzzan Suzzan on Dec 08, 2017
    I don't understand how you got the hooks 2 hook onto the covers
    • Helen Allard Helen Allard on Dec 09, 2017
      My thoughts are that you have to measure each lid to see how it fits.
    • Cheryl A Cheryl A on Dec 11, 2017
      she used two hooks for each lid and they kind of sit between the hooks at their widest part

    • Terry Terry on Nov 16, 2018

      If the hook doesn’t stay on the lid while trying to put it in it’s location, you can use a piece of scotch tape.

    • Lapierrfine Lapierrfine on Dec 16, 2018

      She states that this way, there is no measuring needed. Just position the hooks on the lids so as to see where they will best hold the lid and whete th knobs won't hit anything on the inside. The hooks are not attached to the lids, but to an alcohol prepped surface.

    • Kimm King Kimm King on Dec 16, 2018

      I hang mine on a hook, inside the cupboards, but they keep falling off. She sets the hooks at the bottom of the lid (so that) she can rest the lid in the little cradle. I have to do this to mine!!💕🎄

  • Pat Ronalder Pat Ronalder on Dec 09, 2017
    I like your pull out drawers, where did you get them ?

  • San24217368 San24217368 on Dec 12, 2017
    has anyone EVER got these plastic hooks to stay on longer then a few days/weeks? nothing like hearing all your glass lids hit the floor when the crappy bond fails! jmho!
    • Helen Hoo Helen Hoo on Dec 14, 2017
      i was thinking the same thing. I would not trust it . Especially opening and closing the doors often. Nope.
    • Debbie Debbie on Dec 14, 2017
      I've had these hooks that have been up years and not fallen yet.
    • Wendy Powers Wendy Powers on Dec 15, 2017
      The secret is on the instructions on the back of the package. The key is to clean the surface first with alcohol, then let the surface dry completely, then you need to hold them in place for the length of time specified on the back of the package.
    • Rossy Aulestia DeJesus Rossy Aulestia DeJesus on Dec 18, 2017
      Yeap what Debbie says. The alcohol cleaning part is a most. I also have mine up for up to 7 years, other uses, but I yet have to have one come down by itself. I let It be for one hole day before I hung anything.
    • Aiokersonalicea1 Aiokersonalicea1 on Jan 15, 2018
      You could always try cup hooks and make sure that they're pointed up.
    • Terry Terry on Nov 16, 2018

      Command strips have weight limits on the package, be sure to go by that and the most important part is to let the hook stay on the cabinet without weight on it as prescribed and a package

    • Lisas Rexstar Lisas Rexstar on Nov 20, 2018

      Be sure to CLEAN the surface with rubbing alcohol before you attach the hook. Grease, soap residue, or anything can interfere with the adhesive.

    • Threase Threase on Dec 15, 2018

      Mine have been on the door this same way for 2 years with them. Did you clean the door so the "shine" is matte before applying? I tried a couple times before I realized the sticky part was not compatible with it. Thank goodness for magic eraser! It made it so easy. Third time's a charm!

    • Fran Valente Lowell Fran Valente Lowell on Dec 15, 2018

      But if you dont OWN THE HOME, putting cup hooks into the cabinet door will cost you in the end.

    • Ann Dougherty Ann Dougherty on Dec 15, 2018

      I have had mixed success with them. I used some on the sides of my kitchen waste basket, and they are still hanging on tight, 2 1/2 years later. I used some from the dollar store this Summer, after correct prep, and 24 hours curing time, that wouldn’t even hold up a plastic fly swatted without falling off.

    • Terry Lynn Baylor Terry Lynn Baylor on Dec 16, 2018
      1. Do you need to make sure you get the hooks with the right weight rating for what you were hanging.
      2. Are you letting the hook adhesive cure for an hour before you put weight on them?
      3. And lastly are using a generic hook or an actual command hook?

      Make sure you were getting a hook with the right weight rating and wait the right amount of time before actually putting any weight on the hook. I hope this helps.

    • Sherry Phillips-Kidd Sherry Phillips-Kidd on Dec 18, 2018

      This same issue has happened to me many times, but with off-brand generic hooks. Everything I have hung with Command hooks has held up just fine so far!

    • Dianne Bowers Turner Dianne Bowers Turner on Apr 01, 2019

      The only ones I have ever had a problem with came from the Dollar Store. The Command Strips I buy at WalMart stay on as long as I want them too. Some have been in use for a few years.

    • Peggy Peggy on Apr 02, 2019

      They do not stay on very long. I'm always having them come loose and boom. I don't trust them for anything that will break. The certainly do not hold the weight they say either.


    • Cathy LeBouef Cathy LeBouef on Apr 02, 2019

      I totally agree with you! They do not stay very long and usually fall off in the middle of the night!

    • Merri Peplinski Merri Peplinski on Apr 02, 2019

      That and making sure the surface is prepped (cleaned) !

    • Patti Patti on Apr 02, 2019

      These are COMMAND hooks which are applied to surfaces via adhesive. CUP hooks are the ones that screw into wood.

    • Lester Lester on Apr 02, 2019

      I find it helps to clean the area where you are going to place hooks - 409/. and maybe just a quick sand w/ a rough sand paper . tiny spot .

      gives the surface some grip.

    • Bodega Bodega on Apr 02, 2019

      I have had them stay in place on all kinds of surfaces BUT only if I "degreased" the surface first. That means truly scrubbing with a knobby washcloth and alcohol. And, yes, sometimes "paint" came off. The scrubbing never took off the paint--apparently only a surface layer with the grease. Then everything sticks like crazy!! Good luck!!

    • Jennifer Jennifer on Apr 02, 2019

      Mine have always stayed in place. Always prep the wall and give it time to cure. I use them everywhere and never had a problem.

    • JudyH JudyH on Apr 02, 2019

      Command brand hooks directions are explicit: clean surface, wipe surface with rubbing alcohol, place hook, wait for adhesion to cure, hang item. If you follow their directions hooks will stay until you purposely remove them. I've never had one fail ... and I use them everywhere - including steamy baths, kitchen and laundry room. Get the Command brand that has the strip tab you have to pull from the bottom to remove it. It goes between the surface and the hook. Can't go wrong with them! They stay put forever!

  • Diane Britt Diane Britt on Dec 18, 2018

    How would I get a messed up pots& pan organized? HELP

    • Rose Tovey Rose Tovey on Feb 23, 2019

      Line up all your pots and pans. Then place the lid on top of each one. Turn the lids upside down, seeing which ones fit smoothly, and which have lids with too tall handles. 2) Take the largest diameter that has a lid that fits smoothly. Use that as the bottom of a stack. Build it up with medium and then smaller ones. You may need to make two stacks. Measure open cabinet height, rework stacks as needed to fit.

    • Peggy Peggy on Apr 02, 2019

      You could try tension rods from side wall to side wall just above the pots and pans they should hold the weight

    • Elizabeth Elizabeth on Apr 02, 2019

      I tried this a couple of years ago and every time I opened the cabinet door several lids, if not all of them, would fall off. I tried "repositioning" the command hooks a few times, never helped, so I gave up.


    • GG GG on Apr 02, 2019

      I've had hit and miss luck with command hooks, so I can't answer your question and I don't use them anymore for anything for fear I'll have pictures, etc falling off the walls down the road.

    • Smoothe Jazz Smoothe Jazz on Apr 02, 2019

      Since we're in a rental, my husband doesn't want to use nails in the walls. He used some command hooks for big pieces of art work and a mirror and several of them fell. My mirror is damaged beyond repair. I was in the bedroom when the art fell (both at different times) and I was able to catch one before it knocked my lamp off. The other piece fell straight to the floor. So, yes, I did use nails with everything that I hung, especially for the amount of rent that we pay. The owner will just have to paint when we leave, just as we'll have to paint our home when we return (after the tenant's move out).

    • Beth Barkho- Armstrong Beth Barkho- Armstrong on Apr 02, 2019

      I used a dish drainer to store my lids in. I cut the dish drainer to fit my lids. It really made a big difference.

    • Cla17701941 Cla17701941 on Apr 02, 2019

      I have used them on real wood and painted surfaces. I would buy the command brand as I have used the generic ones Walmart sells and they did not hold up so well.

    • Dee Allen Dee Allen on Apr 02, 2019

      You can use them anywhere inside. But I always wait 24 hours.

  • Darlene Darlene on Apr 02, 2019

    Love the color of the cabinets, is that Laminate and what color is it?

  • Deborah Deborah on Apr 02, 2019

    Are the hooks placed directly onto the glass lid? Won’t they simply “steam” off when the pot is used , plus what about washing the lid? Does the hook stay on in water?

  • Sharon moore Sharon moore on Apr 02, 2019

    how many hooks per lid?

  • What about clearance - do they hit on the drawer when you close the door?

    • Diane Franklin Doletzky Diane Franklin Doletzky on Apr 02, 2019

      She explains very clearly how she lines the lids up on the inside of the door to allow full clearance for the knobs on each lid.

    • Liz Liz on Apr 02, 2019

      To be fair, the rest of the lid also has some depth so I think that’s what the person was asking. My revere ware lids are quite rounded and hers look very flat.

    • Marzipan Kiehn Marzipan Kiehn on Apr 03, 2019

      Fair question. Be sure to check assumptions on fit. I have custom cabinets and drawers and there is not clearance to take advantage of this tip.

  • Nancy Reichle Nancy Reichle on Apr 02, 2019

    When you open and shut the doors do the pots and pan lids stay on or do they fly off

    • Myra Haws Myra Haws on Apr 09, 2019

      I have done this and it works well for lids that don't have a deep lip. A high domed lid would not work well. Make sure you get large comand hooks . The lids do not fly off they stay put. I also use this to hang my cooling racks on the inside of a door. So darn handy

    • Cindi Gentry Cindi Gentry on Apr 09, 2019

      I was wondering how the doors could even shut with the lids in the way.

  • Debbie Debbie on Apr 09, 2019

    Sorry how many hooks did you use for each lid

    • Myra Haws Myra Haws on Apr 09, 2019

      I used 3 . One on the bottom and one for each side.

    • Rick Hodge Rick Hodge on Apr 09, 2019

      I have been using this wonderful idea for probably 10 years now. I don’t have much cabinet space.


      I use one one hook per lid but I shop carefully for the hook size.


      some lids require large hooks, others don’t.....but I never use more than one.

  • Pennie Nelson Pennie Nelson on Apr 09, 2019

    How do U "hang" lids on hooks????

    • Lisa Sayer Lisa Sayer on Apr 09, 2019

      THey “rest” per se instead of hanging. The outside rim touches the hooks.

  • Annette Annette on Apr 09, 2019

    Yes it looks great how many hooks per lid?

  • Linda Linda on Apr 09, 2019

    On step 3 you said ""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." BUT then in an answer to someone's question you said you do not put the hooks on the lid. So I'm confused. Please clarify.

    Thank you.

  • Jenna Jenna on Apr 09, 2019

    Nice! Great idea! Are the hooks strong enough? I’ve used those and seen them fall off the wall holding a robe. Wouldn’t want to break the glass lids. 🙏✨

  • Betty Weiss-Boesing Betty Weiss-Boesing on Apr 09, 2019

    Doesn’t the weight of the lids on the door eventually pull enough down pull on hinge n screws to make the door start to sag???

  • Heather Heather on Apr 09, 2019

    Did the lids fall everytime u opened the door?

  • Carrie Ervin Divine Carrie Ervin Divine on Apr 09, 2019

    Command hooks are my nemesis! I have never used one that actually stayed stuck to the wall! I've followed the directions to a T and still, they fall off eventually. Like within days! Anyone else have this problem or any suggestions?!

      Yes, I have same problem. Wish they would work for me. I follow to the T also.

    • Brittany Brittany on Apr 09, 2019

      Do you wipe the wall clean with alcohol first? I feel like that an important but often skipped step. I have only had a couple fall off in the past from the kids back packs...but honestly, I was pushing the max weight limits and the younger ones dont always take them off the wall very carefully. Hopefully this helps.

    • Debbie Debbie on Apr 09, 2019

      Let it stick untouched for 24 hours before you hang something on it.

    • Connie Connie on Apr 09, 2019

      I have had this problem in the past! I would never use them! I have had more success lately! Not sure if it is newer command hooks that work better or what but I now have 4 of them. up in the bathroom for quite sometime with no problems.

    • Susan Susan on Apr 09, 2019

      I used them on windows for lights, Lord, there are still remnants of them there that takes a sharp razor to get off.

    • Barbara Thompson Leyrer Barbara Thompson Leyrer on Apr 09, 2019

      Rub the area w alcohol first

    • Ruth Ruth on Apr 09, 2019

      I have been told the ones from the Dollar Store works better.

    • Sally Sally on Apr 09, 2019

      SAME PROBLEM FOR ME

    • Sally Saetti Robinson Sally Saetti Robinson on Apr 09, 2019

      The clear infomercial hangers Really work. I hung my heavy pans. The first info product that actually did what they said they would and the amazing fact is t they are repositionable...you just peel back of and press all the way around the square and press the air bubbles out

    • Lathie McKinney Lathie McKinney on Apr 09, 2019

      Perhaps you're using the wrong hook. They come in not only small med and large. They have weight listed like 2 lbs or 5 lbs. Ect.

    • Dragon Dragon on Apr 09, 2019

      try wiping the wall with alcohol to remove any grease. Let dry and try again?


    • Lisa Lisa on Apr 09, 2019

      Was the weight for item followed? Mine fell off even a week/2 later cause I did follow it, even if a lil under.

    • Lisa Lisa on Apr 09, 2019

      Above reply meant for carrie

    • Sandra Dodd Sandra Dodd on Apr 09, 2019

      Rub and press adhesive to the wall, semi smooth surface. Let sit on wall for 24 hrs before putting hook. On. Then wait again. I had the same problem.

    • Kitty Kitty on Apr 09, 2019

      I have the same problem. I tried to use them to hold my pot holders in our camper, I came back an hour later and the pot holders and the hooks were on the floor !


    • Jamie Jamie on Apr 09, 2019

      If there’s any texture or dust on your walls the strips won’t stick also if you try to use them around cold (windows) or hot areas (stove) in your home they won’t stick. They are super moody..

    • Kristie Kristie on Apr 09, 2019

      I have only had trouble when I used them in a window that had sun hitting it. Thats the only issue I’ve ever had.

    • Anne Roberts Anne Roberts on Apr 09, 2019

      This has definitely happened to me. I gave up on them after trying with twice. What you hang has to be light weight.

    • Nina Nina on Apr 09, 2019

      You have to buy the right size for the weight of what you want to hang. They will eventually come unstuck, but if you buy the right size they will last a long time.

    • Chulie Saez Chulie Saez on Apr 09, 2019

      Yes I have the same problem

  • Micki Micki on Apr 09, 2019

    What is holding the lid on? You need to show what’s under the hanging lid

  • Carrie Carrie on Apr 09, 2019

    I make jewelry & I’ve seen jewelry stands made out of dish soap empty bottles and paper towel card board fr the middle do you have a simple way of making one .

  • Lanette Lanette on Apr 09, 2019

    I love those sliding drawers. Where can I get those?

    • Kim Kim on Apr 09, 2019

      You can get them at Ikea

    • Sandi Tillotson-Clum Sandi Tillotson-Clum on Apr 10, 2019

      If you live in Denver, there is a company called Shelves to zDrawers


    • Ze Ze on Apr 10, 2019

      Anyone know where I can get those in Honolulu

    • Stacey Stacey on Apr 10, 2019

      Home Depot

    • Dazymay Diggy Dazymay Diggy on Jan 26, 2020

      Ze you can buy the name brand @ Walmart, Dollar General,but if you don't have these 2 in Honolulu,HI look online to see where they are sold in Honolulu,I'd only buy name brand as i'v bought the generic & had very bad results w/generic, make sure you get the correct weight for what you're hanging up...Good Luck....

  • Debbie Debbie on Apr 09, 2019

    I was just wondering when you close the door I guess there must be enough room for your Lids not to be interfering with the closing of the door?

    • Cindy Cindy on Apr 10, 2019

      If the lid handles are between the shelf it doesnt stop the door from closing.

    • Laura A Rhanor-Firkins Laura A Rhanor-Firkins on Apr 10, 2019

      I was wondering the same thing

    • Mary StClair Mary StClair on Apr 10, 2019

      I really love the look and the idea; however, keep in mind when doing this that the original hinges (and sometimes the door itself) are not constructed to handle that much weight. I learned that the hard way with hanging organizers on the back of full sized doors. It started pulling hinges out and door started coming apart at the seams. It may be a good idea to spread the weight over a few different doors.

  • Georgia Crouch Georgia Crouch on Apr 10, 2019

    Don’t the lids block the cabinet from closing all the way?

    • Janet Janet on Apr 10, 2019

      She said place them between shelves so the door will close


    • Ashley Easter Ashley Easter on Apr 10, 2019

      No because she placed them in between the shelves so the lids wouldn't hit anything😉

    • Janis Janis on Apr 10, 2019

      It certainly appears the lids are not placed so the cabinet door can even think about closing! This is a really dumb idea for lids anyway. So many better ways out there unless you live in half a matchbox!

    • Janis Janis on Apr 10, 2019

      It sure doesn’t look like it. Especially when a lid overhangs the inside of the cabinet door needing to be closed. You need to look again. Closely.

    • Lari Lari on May 09, 2019

      than post the (ur) WONDERFUL ideas! it works I promise it does!

    • Lari Lari on May 09, 2019

      it works i promise it does, maybe she needed to move over teensy bit but it will work!

    • Eliza Spear Eliza Spear on Sep 26, 2019

      If you have better ideas then post them rather that criticize what obviously works for her. And by the way if you look closely as you say, you will see the top lid is right even with the edge of the door and this type of door fits flush so it closes.

  • Lari Lari on Apr 10, 2019

    the hooks from Dollar Tree, are they name brand (3M)?

    • Dottie Dottie on Apr 11, 2019

      The Dollar Tree does have a few Command hooks. However in my experience, their brand or the others that they carry don't really stay stuck.

    • Jackie Jackie on Apr 12, 2019

      I tried some cheaper ones and they did not work..

    • Kathy Kathy on Sep 14, 2019

      I'm with the others. In this case I would stick (no pun intended) with Command brand. The cheaper ones don't work. Thanks!!!! Love the idea!!!!

  • Stephanie Chatterjee Stephanie Chatterjee on May 12, 2019

    Has this held up? I've had really bad luck with command hooks failing. Maybe it works better on a totally smooth surface? Maybe it's just me...

    • Butterfly Butterfly on Oct 24, 2019

      I agree that Command hooks do not hold up. I followed all instructions for use for 3 very lightweight neck chains. After just 2 weeks the hooks fell off the bedroom wall. Several days later, the second hook fell off. All my chains ended up in tangled heaps. (Just what I was trying to avoid.

    • User User on Oct 24, 2019

      I stuck command hooks on the outside of my trailer to hold my mops and brooms and stuff. The only one that fell off, the metal of the trailer was a bit bent underneath, the others are still holding good after over a year of cold, wet, dry, hot, windy and rainy conditions. I cleaned the surface really well with alcohol before applying the strips and let them rest for over an hour in warm weather before hanging my stuff. I've found though that some surfaces even though they appear the same as others don't allow the strips to hang well. Not sure why.

    • Joan Joan on Oct 25, 2019

      It is important to clean surface with alcohol, dry, stick them on, let sit overnight before putting weight on them, hope this helps. I only had one fall off when I was in a hurry

    • Stephanie Chatterjee Stephanie Chatterjee on Oct 25, 2019

      Thanks for the advice. They've been on drywall so I never thought about alcohol but I will definitely give them time to adhere before hanging anything if I try it again. Too impatient I guess!

    • Irene Walters Irene Walters on Nov 30, 2019

      One of my hooks took the paper from the drywall off the wall. A small picture was hanging from it.

    • Dazymay Diggy Dazymay Diggy on Jan 26, 2020

      Butterfly this comment is 4 U...I cleaned my bedroom door w/Alcohol wipes waited 2 hours then put on my Command Hooks pushed lightly for about 2 minutes then waited 24 hours, hung 8 different purses on each of the hooks that was over 3 yrs ago they help up....Not sure if u used alcohol or not but i'd really clean that smooth surface 1st off...

    • Terrie Weaver Wiederich Terrie Weaver Wiederich on Apr 02, 2020

      I can't imagine Command adhesive hooks working well on drywall. Those boards are coated with nothing more than paper. I can see the command hook holding firm to the drywall cover while the paper weakens and rips off from the weight of whatever is hanging from it.

      The only time I've ever had a problem with them not sticking was when my daughter-in-law hung a picture for me. She left the picture up instead of removing it to let the hooks adhere well. Within a couple days that picture was on the floor! Next time she helps, I will teach her how to use command hooks. They're the best thing ever if you don't want holes all over your walls.

    • Diane Newman Diane Newman on Apr 02, 2020

      I have issues with command hooks. So I use Monkey hooks for pictures. They are so awesome and only put a pin hole in your wall. I have used them for over 10 years now. I have been called the Monkey Hook Queen!

    • Jill Dietrich Jill Dietrich on Apr 02, 2020

      Command hooks never work for me either.

    • Becky Howard Becky Howard on Apr 02, 2020

      Same.

  • Cheryl Cheryl on Jan 06, 2020

    I absolutely love the lid storage idea!! Could you also share the name of the rolling shelves shown in the cabinets? Thank you.

  • Victoria Victoria on Mar 29, 2020

    I can see the knobs not hitting the shelves, but wouldn’t the curved dome of the lid still hit the shelves?

  • Patricia Patricia on Apr 02, 2020

    Can you put them on the walls of the inside cabinets. And have plans on bottom. Would it hold strong
