New pot rack is up and functional. As I mentioned before my hubby can make just about anything. He collects all kinds of hardware and holds on to it until he needs it. This time he had everything we needed to make the rack and I have to say it turned out great. I will also go ahead and mention the copper counter tops. When we moved in the counter tops were white tile and the grout looked awful. Luckily my husband was blessed with some scrap copper and we decided to make the new tops out of it. We have a very small kitchen so the pot rack will really come in handy.
