I've made this on my own except a different purpose and will work better if you're not using a blank wall. Use LANSA drawer pulls that come in various lengths and KUNGSFORS hooks in various styles single, wide, magnet or even canisters. It's a cleaner look on cabinets and can even be used underneath them if you're low on wall space.

What an awesome idea this! We have way too many mugs and we love them all so I definitely can't get rid of any! LOL! I like the idea of having a coffee bar like the one pictured. Would a curtain rod and some hooks also work? I don't have an Ikea that close to me.

This is a wonderfully easy, inexpensive way to showcase your mugs. Like everyone else I have them stacked in the cupboard and the ones in front are the only ones to get used. I am also thinking this would be a great way to organize my grand daughters play room. Hang this up and have mugs for pencils, pens, odds and ends that are tiny and get dropped all over.

What a cool idea! There is quite a crowded collection of mugs in my cabinet and I'd love to display at least some of them. This is the perfect solution, although I would never have thought about using simple "S" hooks on a rod. Since I have a LOT of mugs, I'd like to have a longer rod, or maybe two, one above the other. Would that look strange?

I drink a TON of coffee and thus, have collected quite an array of mugs over the years. This would be a perfect way to not only showcase and store them, but to make sure I use all of my many mugs regularly.

I can admit it I have a mug addiction. I buy too many for 50 cents at Goodwill and of course they're all huge like bowls. I'll need 4 of these mug racks to fit them all. But this is really cute so I might as well try and turn my mug collection into art!
