I made a teacup cabinet a couple weeks ago. I had a built in corner cabinet at our house in Grand Rapids, and didn't have anyplace in the new house to put my teacups and other nick nacks. So I decided to make one.
I used the top of an old barn door that used to be on the corn crib carport and some boards from an old hay feeder that was built in front of the big barn.
I put a grove down the back of each shelf so that when you lean the saucer against the back it has something to catch it and keep it upright. I bolted it to the wall with six 3 1/2" screws.
Now I have a wonderful display cabinet for my teacup collection. (with room to grow!) I finally got my tealights in the mail, that is why this post is so late. I was waiting for them so I could take a picture in the dark to show you how the tealights make my teacups glow.
I love it!
