What did we do before Pinterest? Seriously? So many fantastic ideas. When we moved into our home I wanted to set up a tea and coffee station. Previously, our mugs had been 'hiding' in our cabinet, but I *LOVE* our mugs. They represent all sorts of things. Interests, travel, thrifting finds, memory...I doubt there is a mug that I couldn't tell you a little something about. A warm, tasty beverage is important, I wanted to create a place to represent that.
So my initial idea didn't extend beyond a white peg-board to hang the mugs. But then right next to it was this molding that you can use for framing. So duh- let's frame the peg board. And spray paint it red.
Also, the first shelf is of our cookbooks and coffee canister. Second row are puzzles and boards games. So if you want tea and Candy Land, you are ON.
