DIY Over the Counter Dish Rack

March 23, 2020

DIY Over the Counter Dish Rack - over the sink rackI was looking online to purchase an over the sink dish rack and to my surprise they could get kind of expensive. The one I had my eyes was nearly $173 so I decided to construct one myself.


Total Time: Thirty min

Yield: One


  • 1 Metro cart ($29.00)
  • 2 magnetic bar (optional) ($9.99)
  • 1 strainer, hooks (optional) ($1-$10)


  1. Measure the height of the faucet and position shelves to your preference. This is so easy.
  2. DIY Over the Counter Dish Rack - shelves with dinnerware
  3. With the extra shelves you can even make a pot rack by hanging it from the ceiling again at your preference.
  4. DIY Over the Counter Dish Rack - pots and pans hanging with lids on shelf above
  5. I used four screws with the rings at the end which gives me four inches of space between the ceiling to the rack.
  6. DIY Over the Counter Dish Rack - hanging rack

Your system caught my eye though hundreds were on my "image search" page. I will follow it closely in my design. Only thing is I cannot place screws, nails, tape, putty, or the like, anywhere in my 480sf apartment with its tiny shared space kitchen area.


Any suggestions from you or folks who may read this. I also would like a pot rack atop.
