On my daily perusal of Pinterest today, I came across this clever idea that I would never have thought of in 1 million+ years and is so cute and useful. The website is in Italian, but luckily for the world, Google makes everything super easy and you can just cut & paste the description into the translator and it sums it up as this:
"Wall that is no longer seen only as a background, but reflected the personality of those who inhabit the house. Fabrics, frames and small decorations accompany the visitor, offering new ideas for your living room color."*
You super glue some teacups and saucers on a board and then use S hooks to hang pots, pans, spoons, etc. from the wall. How cute! How charming! Also, since you control the design you can use whatever color palette works with your kitchen.... and whatever price range works with your budget. Or you can even use ones you are sick of and then it costs practically $0.
*It's nice to know Google isn't fluent in Italian either.
