Superhero shelves

One thing that most people know about us is that we love superheroes, comic books, and other nerdy/geeky things. We got our first set of superhero cups as part of our wedding registry. Although I already had some vintage DC cups long before we were married. We have continued to accumulate more since then, and have more than 20 now.

I knew that I wanted to display them , but was unwilling to spend a lot on shelving that I didn’t particularly love. So, we built our own. We followed this basic tutorial (even though it’s for a doll house). After it was built, we painted the inside white, covered the sides with comic books pictures and Mod Podge, and painted the front edges yellow.

I love the way it turned out. The only real problem is the yellow clashes slightly with our tan walls, but I plan on having a white kitchen one day, so then it won’t matter.

We will need to get some more DC cups so it doesn’t look so lopsided, but for now, we are enjoying what we have.
