Canning Shelves

Where do you store all your home-canned food?

I bought heavy-duty shelving supports at my local home improvement center and mounted it on my basement walls.  The shelves are parts of an old entertainment center donated by a cousin-in-law.

They can be adjusted to suit varying heights of jars or equipment.

Curtain-Rod Potracks

Having a very small kitchen leads to having to come up with innovative ways to store all ones stuff. There was room above the three doorways in the kitchen, so …

Simple black curtain rods bought at Wal-Mart with heavier-duty black brackets bought at Lowes. This rod was originally bowing / sagging under the weight of everything I had hanging on it, so I added two extra brackets (for a total of 5) and put wooden dowel rods on the inside of the rod as reinforcement.


The copper corner brackets were added later as reinforcements. They also were bought at Lowes and will eventually be painted black. The S-hooks are shower-curtain hooks from Wal-Mart, and again, will eventually get painted black.
