Now onto this week’s post. It is all about being able to find your cooking utensils without having to dig through over-crowded drawers. This rotating cooking utensils rack doesn’t take up much space, makes it really easy to find what you are looking for, and you can build it in less than an hour for less than $10.

    I love this idea!! Where did you find the “lazy Susan” hardware?

    • Thanks, Charlotte! I bought mine at Lowes (at the Lowes by me, it was in the same section with the drawer slides and other cabinet hardware)…but I’m sure Home Depot and other hardware stores carry it, too. Or you can order online from It’s called a Lazy Susan turntable (although they would probably know what you were talking about if you asked for Lazy Susan hardware).

      Thanks, Shirley! I thought it turned out pretty well myself :)

    I showed it to my brother, who is a retired building contractor, and he was quite impressed. I hope to remodel my kitchen after summer is over and will incorporate the hanging utensil storage rack then. Thank you so much for the great idea!

    Love this DIY. I’m going to Lowe’s now to get parts to make me one.

      Thanks, Catherine! Hope you are as happy with yours as I am with mine :)

    It actually does take up the counter space directly underneath it, no biggie though, still a great idea.

    • Wanda

      Thanks, Valerie! You’re right that you can’t put tall things under it, but I usually use that area for staging plates or cookie sheets that I’m about to use…and it works fine for that…

    Your DIY Rotating Cooking Utensils Storage Rack gave me just what I needed to create something better for me (I need to store a lot more items). My wonderful husband used the ideas you provided, and then created one that makes use of the rather large area in the kitchen. It’s DEFINITELY not one that a homeowner could make, but my husband can do just about anything. If you tell me how to send you a picture, I’d love to show it to you.

    Great idea for new homeowners. Put it in before/when you move in and unpack. Your kitchen utensils will be organized from the beginning.

    • Thanks, Kari! You’re right, it would have made my life so much easier if I had done this from the beginning :)
