Cheap n Easy ~ pictures of my bike rack

Good things come to those who wait...

For the past two years I've been looking for the "perfect" thing to hang in my kitchen corner for pots and pans. I shopped online about a year ago and found "just the right thing" which came with a price tag of $249. I could win the lottery and never hope to spend that kind of money on a decoration for my kitchen. I need the space, but not at that price. So ever sense, I've been hunting for the appropriate repurposed rack for this space:

My picky, "I'll know it when I see it", attitude, turned down everything from a circular BBQ grill at homer for $15 to a wooden ladder Dave was willing to donate.

Thumbing through Pinterest, I found this and it was love at first sight! Our friend Frank, had donated a bike stroller with extra wheels to us last year. We had hoped to use it for our dog, Sherman, he proved to be a bit too wild in it! As soon as I showed Dave, he loved it too and went to work.

The next morning, he gave me all the components, a painted, repurposed bed rail, lag bolts and my polished Pot Rack. He let me install it:

Do you love it?

Total cost $ Priceless! Right? Actually, we had all the components in our shop; fondly referred to as D & J surplus, this cheap and easy girl's little piece of heaven.

Ahhh, just looking at it makes me want to go and cook some beans! hahaha
