That shelf is absolutely awesome. One of the best mug shelves ever. Great imagination.

Thanks again for the positive feedback, I'm really glad that the crew here likes the silly shelves that I've put together so far.

So as always, with Tiki Mug capacity at **overloaded**, I'm always on the lookout for new mug shelf options.

Here's the new one I am working on. I found this boat shelf at the Swap Meet two weeks ago, and got it for a steal. I love bargaining! It was pretty well beat up. The nose of the boat was totally smashed in.

A little spackle, wood filler, paint, and some netting material later... it's on it's way to turning into a what I hope is faily respectable mug shelf!


The boat as it started. I've already made the repairs to the nose here.


With the green paint done, and starting the prep work with a little pinstripers tape to mask for the brown portion.


As it is tonight!

Next steps are to add two small glass floats on the sides that my wife picked up at the Freaky Boutiki, maybe some small lettering with it's name, and then hang it up on the wall. I'm still debating some sort of rope decoration on it, but I'm not sure what I want to do. If anyone has some good suggestions for ways to improve it, I'm all ears!

My wife has christened it the "SS Kobey" in honor of the swap meet we love so much.

Another winner! I'm feeling inspired by your creativity. Everything is now looking like a possible mug shelf.

Alrighty... I think I'm about done with the boat shelf. It's upon on the wall and looking good. I might add some interior lighting to it later in the future, but for now I'm pretty happy with it.

Cap'n Holdfast looks like he was made for this shelf:




And finally, a shot with all three of the shelfs that I have made, and how they look all together in the living room:
