Window Pot Rack




My husband and I made this pot rack out of an old window. I have hung some baskets, vintage pots, and dried flowers from it, but have never been happy with how it looks. I love the french country look so I'd like it to reflect that. Do you have any ideas about what to put on top of it and also hang from it? Please let me know. Thanks!!!

Start with some greenery and go from there...If there is an island under it...Hang the pot holder lower and add roosters,rabbits,anything that screams french country! :) I love your blog!

One suggestion would be to go for a more uniform look by hanging all items in the same category...all baskets, all bunches of dried flowers, all pots & pans, etc. I think the actual window is a fun accent & the idea of hanging things from it is also great, but it looks a little heavy & scattered. By hanging a "collection" showcasing similar items, I think you would get the same feel, but that it would be a little more visually interesting but not overwhelming. Let us know what you decide! :)

Can you hang it a little lower so you can more easily see the things displayed on top?
For an inexpensive idea try spray painting all of the items you already have a uniform color like white? You may like everything you already have if it's cohesive and looks less cluttered to your eye.
Or start collecting items that are similar like copper bottomed pots and pans and copper molds.

Hey there cuteness! I just love your blog! I just love you! Thanks for your comment about Buter. He is like a family member now. I am so sad whenever I think of him wandering the street and what would have happened if he stayed at that shelter longer. I appreciate that you embrace this cause too!

OK-let me tell you, I love your style! I love toile and have it in every room! Wall to wall toile! That's my motto. And I have the same waverly pattern in my living room! I just feel like I know you! But you do it all so much better! Kudos on such an awesome blog! I may just have to add you as one of my inspiring blogs. Would you be ok with that? Can you tellmI am excited. Sorry if I seem crazy!

I just found your blog while visiting another. Love your home and have enjoyed all the pictures. So can you come help me with mine?! Your style is very much like mine and all your colors. I don't have a blog but I certainly spend plenty of time being inspired by looking at others like yours.
Question: What is the color green in your guest room? I am not pleased with the shade green in my kithcen.
Thanks for having us in your home,
Maggie

Hey Maggie! Thanks for visiting my blog and for the compliments! The guest room color is Cress Green by Olympic from Lowe's. I really like the color. It shows up way brighter and limey in pictures. Not that there's anything wrong with lime green! I have been very happy with the color for 5 years now and don't plan on changing it anytime soon. Keep visiting me!!!

Hi Angie,
thank you for visiting my blog a little while back. Summer has been busy and I am just now catching up on my blogging. I added you to my bloglist and will visit often. I love you window-potrack idea, very cute. I wish I could have a potrack but I have a very small galley kitchen and no space. Maybe someday, when the wall to the diningroom comes down. I'll certainly will keep your idea in my idea file.
Have a woonderful Sunday,
Tam

I'm going to leave the decorating advice to the professionals...but I LOVE it! Your kitchen is so cute. I love the red walls...my kitchen is red too. :o)

Oh I LOOOVVVEEE this idea! I was just wondering too if it could be lowered a teeny bit? then I would take everything off and add one piece at a time, only your favorites. Also you know you could hang ribbon along the chain too, like they do to those mirrors, or even cord covers just to disquise the chain and that would add some neat color too. Just add a piece, take a step back, look at it in the morning, either add or subtract. Sometimes my alter ego that likes alot of "stuff" comes out in the late hours and my more sane self has to take over in the morning and fix it! :) Anyway, it's a great idea and fits in perfectly with your style. Have fun with it! ~ Laurie

Is there actual glass in the panes? I was wondering about painting the frame black and etching some design on the glass, then lowering it a tad to make it show up?
