Who has time to spend redoing the decorating all of the time? And yes I know how ironic it is for a design/decor blogger to say such a thing. Admittedly I am changing things up all of the time, but I don’t have all day to redo things. I need to be able to make changes quickly.
And so that is why I love these bottle drying racks also known as cup racks or cup holders. You can use them so many different ways. Here I used them to hold bakers’ twine.
Or you could hang cups on them if you like.
Or what about using them for bottles?
Below I used them to hold glasses.
And today we are using them for these adorable mini creamers.
Honestly this is my favorite look so far with the bottle drying racks. They just look so cute!
The beauty of using the drying racks, is that it is so easy to change the look by taking things off and adding something else. You don’t even need to put something on every hook. This rack is reproduction; the vintage ones can be very pricey.
If you do a lot of holiday and seasonal decor, just think of all the things you could use a cup rack for. For more 10 minute decorating ideas, check out the other blog posts from my friends.
Great ideas, Anita! I love the mini creamers … might have to try and find a few of those for mine! Thanks for sharing.

The zinc bottle rack does have so many uses and you have utilized it so beautifully with uses and looks…must say that I love the mini creamer look!!…Loving the white against the metal.
Love these drying racks. I see them in posts all the time. I live in Canada….and not been able to find any. Any suggestions?
Decor steals is where I got mine.
World Market sells a small version online.

These were some GREAT ideas! Thanks for the inspiration. I can see how a cup rack would be cute with seasonal decor (as you suggest). Perhaps I would hang little ornaments, etc on the hooks.

The drying rack with the bottles on it…..looks good but what use is it? Would you reuse the bottles? have them available for guests to claim to reuse? Looks good but to what end? Thanks! Nance
Nance, that is up to you. You could use it to hold coffee cups by a coffee bar. Guests could grab a mug and pour their own coffee.
Each one is a great idea! That is the best part about some of these French accessories, you can use them for so many different things. Fun post, merci beaucoup.
My favorite picture of the cup rack is also the one with the miniature mini creamers. I agree that they are so cute.

Thanks for the tip Anita! My husband loves to pickle green papayas. We could dry his mason jars there too. Have a good day!

I have a cup rack and I was thinking of using it in my dressing room for all of my bracelets.

I have been looking for a small cup rack for my coffee and wine bar… Most of the ones I have seen are very tall. I love the creamers also. Jean
Wow, what a wonderful idea. I love the many ideas of how to use the rack. Thank you for saring this fabulous idea.

Love all your ideas…especially using it to hold the twine…which I have in a basket but you can’t really see them. I’m now on the lookout for a cup rack. Thanks for always sharing all your wonderful ideas, Anita. Merry Christmas!
