I saw something in a cookbook I had recently bought. It wasn't a "how to do this project" thing, just an illustration used in the book. And I knew I was onto something. So I bought a short piece of wardrobe rail, and the fixings for that, and I put it up (well, my husband did it for me) across the kitchen window. And now all my lovely tools hang from butchers hooks, slung along the rail.
If the window frame recess was larger than the actual window itself, then I would have been able to use ordinary kitchen tool rails, BUT because the upvc window goes the full width of the space, and those normal kitchen tool rails attach on the back to the wall, rather than at their ends, it wasn't possible.
Using the wardrobe rail and fixings meant we were able to attach it to the side walls of the recess.
Come back tomorrow and see how I adapted this idea for jewellery storage.
But while you are here today why not check out my other craft projects, or my recipes page.
