You can see in the picture that my cutting board has a hole for hanging, as does the trivet (the round, red object sitting on the counter).
Now that I had an idea, I had to execute it. To accomplish this project I had to get out my drill, screws, and anchors. The wall is plaster, which means the regular hammer/nail combination is pretty daunting. With plaster walls, my dad taught me that using screws and anchors is a good way to secure your item. Plaster tends to chip, and weak nails usually buckle when you try to hammer them in. The screws and anchors I used are similar to this product from Home Depot.
After a lot of muscle (plaster walls are hard to break into, even with a drill!), I managed to get the cutting board and trivet up on the wall:
I also received a new utensil holder for Christmas:
One last thing - I don't know how to organize my spices better so it doesn't look so cluttered. Any ideas?
