Save some space in your kitchen.

Step 1

Remove glazing on long, straight areas of the window using the Dremel® Multi-Max with the MM450 blade. To remove glazing in curved or tight spaces, use a Dremel® Rotary Tool with the 115 high-speed cutter. Once glazing is removed, you can either re-glaze or remove the pane of glass altogether.

Step 2

Remove paint on flat expanses of the window using the Dremel® Multi-Max with the MM70P Sanding Sheet. Use a rotary tool equipped with a Flapwheel sanding accessory to remove paint in areas that are more difficult to access.

Step 3

Paint the sanded frame. Once the paint is dry, drill pilot holes into the frame in areas where you would like to hang your pots. Finger-tighten screw hooks into your piloted holes. TIP: You can stand the frame upright on your counter, mount it to a wall, or hang it from the ceiling. Here we hung the window using a galvanized cable looped around screw hooks fixed to each corner of the window. SAFETY TIP: Work with both tools at a medium speed. If you chose to remove the pane of glass, be careful to watch out for any existing nailing holding the pane into place - as they can be sharp. Wear gloves when working on this project.
