    This is awesome! My apartment may be tiny, but it’s my home. I’d love to build a roll-out shelf to save on space; it would take a good deal of time but I would be so proud of myself. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    This is awesome! I just moved into a small apartment, and I’m finding that it’s difficult to move everything from my storage unit into my new home. I’m learning that every inch of space counts, so I’ll look into a DIY pot rack and roll-out pantry shelf. I think those would make the biggest impact right now. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    When I moved here, I had 2 hooks, on each side of my stove back splash. I just ignored them, until recently. I saw a post hanging their copper pots on the wall… Ding! Light bulb! I hung my 2 purple skillets there, and I couldn’t be happier! Of course, their bottoms are spic and span shiny like a mag, but oh well!
