Need your help........

Ok ladies (and gentlemen, if you're interested), I need your help.  I have a whole collection of tea cups that I would like to display somewhere in my house, but............. I need it to be done in a creative and modern way without it looking too victorian (not that I don't like victorian, but it would clash big time with the other decor in our house).

Here is one idea I found on pinterest...............they used old drawers from a cabinet.


Great way to display all those old tea cups I have......



Are there any other creative ideas out there?

Thanks for your help!

  1. Instead of drawers use cube shelves. I know Target has some.

    1. Great idea! Thank you! I especially like the first link where the cups are on the wall alone. I will just have to figure out how to hang them........

      THanks,

  3. I actually have been looking for a solution for my teacup collection... I have the same problem. I actually just came across these two ideas today. would love to know what you discovered

    I love the idea of the shadow boxes..but I would not do it in white as it would not match my dinning or living room.

    I also found this which was great.. figured I could do some combination of the two.

    1. Suzanne, I like both of these ideas!! I think a combination of the two would be perfect. I really have not found anything that I have have fit what I am trying to envision yet. My tea cups are still in a box waiting for my "brilliant moment". I think these may have just helped me come up with something. Thank you so much for sharing!!
