Introduction: Rolling Pin Holder Using Bungee Cords
A place to put a Rolling Pin or other large item up and out of the way. All you need is a small flat bungee cord and cabinets with removable shelves (or tools to affix them if your shelves are stationary).

Step 1: Step 1: Measure the Bungee to Fit Your Item
Make sure your bungee hook fits the item you want to hang. In this case, it fit the Rolling Pin perfectly. Then all you need to do is cut the cord at its center point. Since this was one of those small ones that is always hard for me to find a use for, it wasn't too painful ('cause I love my bungees!).
Step 2: Step 2: Knot the Bungee and Slide Behind the Shelf
Take care doing this - empty the shelf first. Then tilt it toward yourself and position the bungees carefully - it made a very tight fit for me. You want the flat top of the bungee hook flush against the cabinet bottom and the knot tight against the top, so there's no wiggling or movement of the hooks, once in place. When you return the items to the shelf, it will help hold it even more securely.
If your shelf doesn't come out, then another option would be to drill holes in the flat tongue of the bungee hooks and using wood screws, attach to the back of the cabinet. With either option, you could use old bungees that have lost their stretch...upcycling them!
Step 3: Step 3: Finish Up
Return the dishes or items to the upper shelf and test it out. It should be very secure. And, your upper shelf items should easily hide the knots at the back. Done!
