Hanging Cups

Recently, I have been finding and collecting vintage Melmac dishes.  They are great for the kids and they are not very expensive.  We now have 10, almost perfectly matched, aqua coffee mug cups that have been sitting stacked on our bar (storage is so limited here).  Its taken a while (a couple months) to figure out where I am going to keep them.  Pictured, is what I came up with.  A while back, we installed a shelf above my kitchen sink that is useful for privacy and storage.  And now, it supports this new cup holder!

This project cost under $10.  A box of eye hooks, 18″ of chain and 4 boxes of S-hooks.  We have 10 cups and 12 hooks as I am hoping to end up with a dozen cups at some point in my collecting.  After figuring out spacing, I pinched the top of the S-hooks with pliers so they would stop falling off the chain every time I took a cup off the hook.
