I have been collecting china tea-sets for the bast few years and, they are my favourite things to collect. In this week’s YouTube video, I created a DIY teacup display wall in a nook in my bedroom. I hacked the Ikea Mosslanda picture frames and used them as shelving for my teacups. I created an area that display’s them in all their glory. I had been hiding some of my tea-sets in cabinets and inside boxes because I didn’t have enough shelving to display them. So, I decided to create a feature wall and use my teacups as decor pieces.
In my bedroom, I have a nook area. My bedroom is a large room with an awkward shape. I have a small lounge area in my bedroom, and I used this corner to create my teacup nook.
I repainted the wall in Farrow & Ball “calamine“. I also repainted the door in the shade “Calamine” in the Farrow & Ball estate eggshell paint. I loved how this colour looks in this corner of the room. This room gets light in the morning and, in sunrise, it gives off a warm pink tone. This shade was the perfect backdrop for my teacups. Most of my teacups have white backgrounds with floral patterns, and they can look lost against a white wall. The pink shade helps them pop out from the wall, and they stand out more.
I repainted the Ikea Mosslanda picture rails in the same Calamine shade of paint. I primed the shelves, and once they dried, I gave them two coats of Calamine. I then drilled them into the wall. As my wall was plasterboard, I used special drill bits that would help the shelves take the weight of the teacups.
Once my nook was painted, drilled and dried, I had fun styling it. The hard work was complete, and I could have fun arranging my tea-sets. I purchased this acrylic set of stands from Amazon. You can get them in different sizes, and they help the plates stand up. I love these, the teacup plates have loads of details, and it is a shame to hide them.
I collect a lot of my china teacups from my travels. Every teacup has a tale. One of my favourite brands is Royal Albert, and I love collecting the New Country Rose set. I also keep an eye out for vintage china sets from second-hand sites, and charity shops. Every tea-set I have holds a memory. I also love to buy a new piece to mark an achievement in my life. I love a floral pattern, and I also love how they are timeless and never go out of fashion.
