OUT WITH THE OLD.Still struggling to toss out your old, mismatched dishes? Find New Uses for Old, Chipped Dishes and upcycle your way to a clutter-free kitchen.
Let your dishes do the talking! If you’ve finally kicked worn-out, chipped dishware to the curb and replaced them with a stylish new set (or sets), why not show them off at every opportunity? Though hosting dinner parties and organizing family get-togethers are always fun options, you don’t have to go all out to let your style shine.
From bright and bold to fun and floral, your dinnerware decisions say a lot about you. Show off your inner style with an outer DIY display that’ll liven up your living space.
FEATURED | MODERN CHIC
Is your dining room elegant in its simplicity? If so, we’ve got just the right DIY project to dress up the space without sacrificing your clean lines and clutter-free environment.
Plate Wall | Add artistic flair to any room with a hanging display. Attach lipped shelves to walls, then arrange plates in a row. We recommend featuring the round or square CORELLE® IMPRESSIONS™ SPLENDOR patterns. Or try mixing and matching various patterns in the same color family, such as the CORELLE® UPTOWN BLUE PATTERNS available at MACY'S, for an elegant look that’ll add artistic style to your space.
COMFY AND COZY
When it comes to starting the day off right, we’ve got one word for you: coffee! If cozying up with a cup of joe is your idea of a perfect morning, this super-simple project is a great way to carry coffee love into your kitchen décor.
- Pallet Mug Rack. Turn a wooden pallet into a simple mug display. Unless you own a serious coffee cup collection, a fourth of a pallet will do the trick for this rustic rack. Use a circular saw to trim your pallet to the desired size, then sand the edges down. Safety over splinters! And, last but not least, screw hooks along each horizontal board. Now for the fun part—choose your favorite mugs for display. We love the bright look of the CORELLE® BOUTIQUE™ BRUSHED collection. Choose your favorite color or mix and match for an extra pop of color.
CRISP AND CLEAN
Live simply. You can’t go wrong with a kitchen that’s crisp, clean and stripped down to the essentials. This simple display method is not only fun, but functional too. You’ll love how easy it is to style and maintain.
- Three-Tiered Stand. This look couldn’t be easier to pull off. All you need is a three-tiered stand or baker’s rack that strikes your fancy and you’re set to go. Need a little inspiration? Simple is beautiful. Style your stand with the understated elegance of CORELLE® EMBOSSED™ BELLA FAENZA 16-PC DINNERWARE SET. Then, add a few white mason jars and faux fruit as finishing touches…easy peasy.
Repurpose the old with the new and you’ll have a stunning display that instantly turns shabby into chic. Dishware looks beautiful propped in old leather trunks, retro suitcases—even rustic dish drying racks. Or hunt through local antique shops for surprising finds that can be used as a stylish showcase.
- Beautiful Birdcage. When it comes to antiques, think outside the box! Dishes stacked inside old birdcages add unique flair to any room. For practicality’s sake, look for large decorative cages with oversized doors or a removable roof. Spray-paint in pastels for a Southern look. Or, if you’ve discovered a birdcage with fluted roof and Imperial aesthetic, try pairing it with a bold dinnerware pattern like CORELLE® BOUTIQUE™ KYOTO LEAVES.
SWEET AND SIMPLE
Home sweet home. You don’t always need to make a bold statement…subtle efforts go a long way in making others feel welcome. This cute-as-can-be idea is the perfect way to add a sweet but simple touch to your kitchen.
- Country Cottage Basket. Get inspired by this beautiful French country tablescape by Cabin and Cottage and layer on the love. Use the CORELLE® BOUTIQUE™ CHERISH 16-PC DINNERWARE SET to help pull off this look.
After all the thought that goes into choosing your dinnerware, it’s a shame to keep it locked away. With these fun décor ideas, you never need an excuse to show off your style!
