Crash of the Falling Pot Rack

MMoving is exciting and exhausting at the same time. So much to do! I decided to sell a few extra belongings that I moved from the Atlanta house, so I texted some friends and neighbors to come have a look. Soon they arrived and began to mill around. One eagle-eyed friend noticed that my pot rack was hanging on for dear life! We all grabbed stools, pillows, baskets (and whatever else we could find) to help support the massive globe lights suspended from the middle of the rack.

After a few frantic texts and phone calls, my trusted helper arrived to save the day. If the rack had fallen it would have taken out the lights, a collection of copper pots, frying pans—and it probably would have cracked the marble counter, too. Yikes!

Thank goodness for eagle-eyed friends!

No problem—not going to fall again with several added screws

All is well—notice how far above the pillows the lights are now
