Start imagining new purposes for old things and you'll find new storage solutions. Here an antique sled becomes a pot rack when suspended from the ceiling. It provides a handy place to hang pots and pans while adding flea market style to the space.
Rustic kitchen idea - Screen Door basket and pot rack. The decor here isn't rustic, but I love the idea of suspending a door to create storage for large pots and baskets. A Victorian screened door with gingerbread and brick brack would be awesome!
I was going to use a weathered section of wood ladder as a pot rack in my kitchen but not enough room after wall cabinets and lighting fixtures. Still like the idea and have a section two of wooden ladder around somewhere I think.
Hang a pot rack or pegboard. Take storage into your own hands. Hanging a pot rack or pegboard is usually well within the scope of renters' rights, and they can open up much more storage in the kitchen. Look for inexpensive racks on Craigslist and at IKEA.
