Empty frames are a great substitute for buying art. All you need is a collection of frames, whichever style you prefer and then hang them in an artful way. You can find frames doing some thrift store wondering. Don’t turn your head if it is not a prefered color, if the frame itself is of quality, you can spray paint them to make a mismatched bunch more cohesive. You can make this wall of empty frames as large or small as you like. For positioning, look at all the frames as a whole and make the center at eye level.

In the house that I grew up there are hooks under the cabinets to hang mugs. My whole family drinks tea, every day, all day, so naturally we need a convenient place to store them, cup hooks under the cabinet is the answer. Displaying your beautiful mugs on cup hooks is both practical and elegant, and very cheap to do, as you can get a box of hooks for only a few dollars at your local hardware store. If you want to get really fancy, there are some companies that make units for hanging cups.
