How to make your own sliding pots and pans rack?
This sliding pots and pans rack is easy to build with just a few simple steps. All you need to do is gather the materials we’ve listed below. Once you have all the materials, find a kitchen cabinet or cupboard where you can attach your sliding pots and pans rack.
Now that you have your heavy-duty drawer slides, it’s time to attach them to your finished pine board. You’ll need to use your drill and screws to do this. Make sure that the screws are long enough to go through the thickness of the board and into the drawer slide. You’ll also want to make sure that the drawer slide is level with the board. Once you have the drawer slide in place, you can start attaching the screws.
After attaching the drawer slides to your finished pine board, attach the screw-in ceiling hooks on the other side of the board. Attach as many as you need, making sure to leave enough distance between each one to fit a pan. Make sure the hooks are screwed in tightly so that the pans will be secure. You can now hang your pans from the hooks, freeing up space in your cabinets.
You can opt to paint your sliding pots and pans rack to the same colors of your pans collection. This will give your kitchen a more uniform and polished look. If you have a lot of different colours in your pan collection, you can opt to paint your rack with neutral colours like white or black.
