If you are a coffee drinker and mug collector you know how beloved your mugs are and displaying them is an art form. I've been trying to think of ways to display our mugs that don't look cluttered or take up counter space.
When we recently gave our kitchen a makeover, my focus was on displaying our plates and cups in a way that made them part of the decor. So our plates are all white and square, and our cups on the adjacent side are rainbow. The cabinets have a wire mesh cutout we DIY'd so you can see them peeking through. For the coffee mugs, we took a storage area that used to be our "junk spot" and it was loaded with things we never used. We took the doors off, lined the shelves with vinyl, and bada-bing-bada-boom my coffee mugs were an eye-catcher.
It gets all the compliments.
Finding a mega-cute mug is like finding a truffle in the forest. I might even squeal like a truffle pig, I'm not too sure as I'm already distracted with the glory of the treasure I've found. My most recent find was this "Heck Yes" mug I spotted while strolling through Target. My husband was already long gone with the cart as I scanned the shelf like a crazy lady. It might have something to do with mustard yellow being my favorite color right now and had just watched Napoleon Dynamite.
Did you spot the shiht tzu gremlin?
Having gotten rid of a bunch that had faded or chipped, I had enough to fit two of the three shelves. The shelf below is some flow over kitchen items that will be moved once my collection expands. Did you hear what I just said? I have ROOM for MORE now, Bwahaha!
Let's take a look at some of my favorite mugs in my collection!
"i literally can't" When I get up in the morning but had a rough sleep or my day is already starting off with a hiccup, I grab for this one.
My mug is my mood that day.
This mug mood is, "I'm up, I'm ok, but I'm feeling a little crampy"
When my pups are being good little girls and boys I like this one. They have mornings where they get up and stretch toward me in bed all sleepy and cute, licking my face and yawning. That's this mug mood. I do NOT use this mug when Vinny wakes me up with a slap to the face and Sis biting my armpit, that's more like a, "I literally can't" mug morning. Haha.
That's all I got! Stay tuned on my Instagram cause I'm a total nerd and share every mug I purchase in my stories! Do you collect coffee mugs too? What's your favorite?
