CI Displayed In Your Kitchen? Got a Pic?
 
I kind of want to display some nice pieces in my kitchen but I also want to be able to grab them and use them. Please be honest. Does this look tacky?

Would any of you care to share a picture? Maybe give me some ideas?

Wow. Worlds largest pic. Kinda hard to tell how it looks.

EDIT: I see the pic is scaled down now.

I wonder if you're going to crack the heck outta your tile. I'm also looking to hang my pans in a pantry, but am also looking at installing a panel on the drywall they can hang against and bang. Drywall will perish after a while.

So Hi, new(ish) member. Been reading here for a while trying to get caught up on everything. Been cooking in CI for years, but only started "collecting" in the last 8 months or so. But I like my pans:

I'd like it a lot more if my Gris LBL #9 in the center there wasn't cracked right through the center (still looks good there, though, doesn't it?)

And before anyone asks, no I've never cooked in there. My house was built in the early 60s and I don't think it has ever been used by any of the owners of it. It does have a chimney so it would probably work, but open fire in my kitchen sort of scares me :)

Not tacky, but a little bit much. Maybe one or two and if anyone shows an interest pull the rest out of the cupboard.

I got hooked on the Descoware and Le Creuset ceramic coated CI pot tops/skillets as the perfect egg skillets. Under here the half shelf has more CI.

Easy to reach & show next to the stove.

Chris- Looks awesome! Do the skillets get scraped?

Hilditch- Looks awesome also! Do your walls / wallpaper have any marks from pans over time?

That's my thing- I'd like to hang on a wall but I have drywall.

Never had a problem with the pans on the wall getting messed up (or the wall getting messed up but it is brick so ...)

I am a bit careful putting the up and taking them down but it's not a problem.

Ted, no issue here. There is a slight smudge from the aebleskiver pan but that would wash off with a drop of Clorox cleaner. We play gentle but at the worst you could touch up with a Q-tip and some wall paint. Remember, the piece will normally hide any mark left on the paint.

Chris, Not cooking in that fireplace is like filling a Griswold with dirt and planting petunias in it. Shame on those that went before you.

We would have liked to hang our pans from some type of rack. I didn't want to mess up the textured wall/ceiling covering. So we decided to use a hutch to display and store. Then I made a skillet stand out of some scrap wood I had, still need to finish it.

I think all these look fantastic. I am going to build some sort of rack to display mine soon, but am limited in space. Maybe a rack near the stove for the ones I use, and display some collector pieces on the wall.
