I like the peg board idea, but how do I keep the pots from greesing up?

Julia Childs pegboard---more like an entire WALL of pegboard!--has been donated to a Museum and I am sure if you used Mr Google you can find out where and get a peek.  LOVE the file cabinet idea!  Similar to how we "tricked out" a small wheel around tool cabinet in our garage--added a flat top with a piece of old melamine covered shelving and added paper towel and magnetic tool holders on the sides.  Now we just gather the tools we need and wheel to where we have to work  And the cabinet--a Sears Craftsman oldie---cost a whopping $1 at a yard sale.

I love the pegboard idea Aidel. It's definitely one of my favorites. I didn't know Julia Child had one!?

I haven't tried a pegboard in my kitchen yet, but Julia Child did. I thought she was brilliant to trace the outlines of her utensils right onto the pegboard. That way, when she was using many items at once, it was easy to put them away again.
