Not only is this incredibly quick, but if you already own a spare pair of shoelaces and a staple gun, this is going to be free. If not, this is going to cost you either
- a pair of shoelaces and a staple gun (the shoelaces cost me 19p from Homebargains)
- a pair of shoelaces and some extra ingenuity/elbow grease not included in this article.
So anyhoo, here we go:
Decide approximately how high you’ll need your shoelace “tightropes” to run, in order for your pot lids to hang on them and still be able to close your door. (Just need to hold up a couple of the lids one above the other, and eyeball approximately where the lid handles will sit.)
Tie a knot at the end of the shoelace. Double-staple the shoelace to the door right next to the knot.
“Measure” the lid which is going to live in this position, by just stretching the shoelace over it, and tie another knot just after where the next staples will go.
Staple either side of the new knot.
Repeat step 3 for the next lid. Cut off or tie any excess shoelace after the knot.
Repeat the whole process for the next level of your rack. Et voila!
We’ve been using ours for almost a year now and it’s very sturdy – as good as the day it was stapled.
