Organizing Mugs

I have several mugs taking up my little cabinet space. Does anyone have an idea for a neat mug rack. I did see the beautiful rack from a garden rake, but I do not have a rake like that.

Thanks for the tips.

Can you screw cuphooks into the underside of your upper kitchen cabinet and hang the mugs there? My friend did this years ago in her tiny kitchen. It cleared out some shelf space for her but did not clutter her limited counter space. Just make sure the mug handles fit into the size hooks you choose.

You could buy some of those cheap coat hangers - those that have three or more hangers attatched. Unscrew the hangers, buy some 1/4inch dowel, drill holes to take the dowel in the hanger about 4inch apart and cut the dowel into 3inch lengths. Now glue the dowel lengths into the hanger, paint the whole assembly and position where you want it and hang your mugs etc.

You might find a mug rack at a garage sale or thrift store. Even if it wasn't the right color, you could spray paint it. I think I like the idea of the cuphooks inside a cabinet....that way they stay clean!

Screw some hooks underneath the cabinet to hang mugs you don't have room for inside the cabinet. Inside the cabinet door is good for important papers, measuring spoons, etc.
