DIY Floating Shelves and Skillet Rack

Need more storage in your kitchen? Especially for pans?

 

We use our cast iron skillets everyday and they are so heavy to get in and out of the cabinets. So I came up with this idea to hang them where everyone can reach. I also wanted some storage above so we added these inexpensive, easy floating shelves
