3. Paint fake windows on your garage door and embellish with some cheap hardware.


4. Add a curtain rod to the side of your cabinets to hang up your pots and pans.

Even if you don't have fancy cookware to display, this will still be an awesome organization trick. Again, I say win-win. Oh, and keep the bottoms of your (stainless or enameled) pans looking spankin' new with Bar Keepers Friend and a bit of elbow grease.
