This summer I found some nice, narrow shelves at IKEA that have worked great for my Tiki Mugs - they are quite narrow - only about a total of 3" deep - you can tell from the pictures below how narrow they are & some of the wider mugs hang over the edge a bit. The shelves come unstained & I think they were $2.99 or 3.99 a piece. We have a teak bar, so I stained them to be a bit darker.

Good Luck!!!

Took me quite a while to find shelves that were just what I wanted!

Those IKEA shelves are great. I put some across a wall for displaying mugs. The shelves are nice and discreet but it would be nice if they were about 1/2 inch deeper.
Aloha,

I too was eyeing those IKEA shelves. When I saw them on display in Costa Mesa they had a bunch of finishes- I wasnt aware that you had to stain them yourself... or do they also offer an unstained version for color-matching?

At the IKEA I was at (Chicago), they only had unstained ones - but you lucky West coast-types may have more options at your IKEA

I can't find them on the website. We don't have an IKEA in Atlanta, are they in the catalog?

I just checked & didn't see them in the catalog, unfortunately - I only saw them "live" in the store. & I don't have any still in the packaging to tell you the name or with a code # - anyone else have any with the info. still on them? Or a recipt that lists the name of each item? I'm sure if you can get the item name or number that they would probably ship them your way.
Best of luck!!

Cheers

Yes, I think Monster Marq now prefers to be called Monster Marq-ette when here in our Tiki bar....

& the lack of Earthquakes here in the land of Cows & Cheese makes my mugs safe on even these narrow shelves - hah! - us Midwest tikiphiles finally have an advantage over you West-coast types who have the real advantage of living in the land of Tiki everyday

Any other advice on how to display mugs? I am going to make a shelf and I'm looking for ideas and recommendations. Any other thread on how to make your own Tiki mug shelf? This is a useful thread and deserves to be revived after 7 years of slumber. Aloha.
