Loves2Cook4Six- Question about your pot rack cabinet??

california_dreamerNovember 19, 2007

Thanks so much for posting the photo of your pot rack mounted inside an upper cabinet.

I love this idea and want to use it in my kitchen. I got the pot rack from the Container Store but I am wondering how you mounted it to the shelf?

If mounted to the ceiling I see that you would screw the eye screws into the ceiling and then use the hooks to hang the rack. But I can't see how you would directly bolt it to a shelf since the top of the pot rack is not solid wood.

I hope I'm making sense . . .

If possible, could you explain how you bolted the pot rack to the shelf?

Thanks so much!

We needed more hardware than came with the shelf :)

We purchased bolts long enough to go through the shelf and then through the "slit" of the pot rack where the hooks go. We used a washer to prevent the nut from falling back through the slit.

Then we drilled holes aprox. 3" in from the edges along the long center of the shelf and bolted the pot rack to the shelf. We can adjust the height of the pot rack by adjusting the shelf height. Right now the bolts hold the pot rack so tightly to the shelf that the hooks cannot move. I need to loosen the bolts a wee bit and adjust the hooks better and then retighten them.

In the picture below you can see the bolt between the first and second hook from the left.
