I'd like to hang my pots and pans, but the only exposed wall is brick, and the kitchen is too narrow to hang them from the ceiling. This is a 100+ year old rental building, so I would like to avoid drilling into the brick as much as possible. There's one existing anchor in the wall at about the right height, so I could use that and drill one more hole (the other existing anchors are filled in with cement).
I was considering this rack but I realized that would require 4 holes, and if the left and right holes are not spaced exactly right, I'll be drilling into the brick instead of the mortar.
My other main thought is to get some piece of wood and stain it, and mount that with two screws. Then I could either get a rack like the one above and mount that to the wood, or just put individual hooks in the wood. Would that work? What kind of lumber would I need?
Either way, what kind of anchors should I use for this? There are many options at this page.
