Tea Cup Display

My daughter and I love pretty tea cups, and we found these on clearance marked down and then half off the marked down price!  

I've been wanting to put hooks underneath the kitchen shelves since we built them, but I had no reason to do it until we found teacups that we wanted to display with our everyday dishes.

This was an easy project. Using the cups, I eyed where I wanted the hooks and then my spouse drilled holes and screwed in the hooks.













It's just a small, whimsical addition to our new kitchen.

  2. Your kitchen is fabulous! I love the look of your new tea cups on hooks and how fun you found them on sale. I love tea cups too but for some reason, I seem to have a collection of mugs instead. They work well for hot chocolate though. Hope you are having a great day!

    1. Thank you, Roxie. We built the shelves too. I love the shelves open, because I only have in the kitchen what we use. I am sort of amazed at the functionality, because I use to have a large kitchen; I didn't realize how much was not used and just buried in the cupboards until I packed it.

  27. Your teacups are so pretty and they work perfectly with your dishes. I'm so happy to see your kitchen. I just love it, and it is great inspiration for me. We are most likely going to have a very small kitchen in our next home (as we did in our last), and seeing what you have done with yours really gives me lots of ideas. Thanks for sharing at Every Room In The House. Hope you have a great week. ~ Nancy
