Improv hanging pan rack

We had a huge problem finding space for our cookware and getting it all organized. Our kitchen is pretty spacious but somehow the pans were all cluttered up in the cabinets. We needed more space to store our mixing bowls and Tupperware too. So Eric came up with this solution:
He hung two maple sticks (de-barked) across the cabinets on either side of our sink. The back stick has a wire basket on one side and an onion braid made of onions from our garden on the other side. The wire basket holds our garlic, potatoes and store-bought onions. Right now we have some sage drying on there too. And a measuring cup.
Eric screwed 8 hooks ($.79 each at the Rural King) into the front stick, which was a little thicker. Simple! I hung all our pots and frying pans up there and now we have lots more room in the cabinets. I love it! It makes me smile every time I walk into the kitchen!
Now we just have to figure out how to organize the lids.
