A simple hanging pot rack hack

Materials: LÄMPLIG Trivet, GRUNDTAL S-hook

Description: I used a piece of Oak that matched my cabinets then cut it to size and drilled holes for the ends of the LÄMPLIG Trivet to stick out.

After smoothing the edges with sandpaper, I used large screws and countersunk them in so they sit flush with the wood. Before putting it all together, I finished the wood with food safe mineral oil.

I used stainless steel hooks and chain I got from Home Depot. Though you can get zinc plated ones for a lot cheaper.

Total cost: ~ $40 Though if you use zinc plated chain and hooks you can do it for a lot cheaper. ~ $30

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
