Default 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.

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.

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

Hi, folks. No, I don't have any pictures available yet--hubby does that, and I have not yet gotten him to try it here! I used to live in a house with TRULY funky walls, but if you found a stud, cast iron could be hung easily. Am now in a newer house with regular dry wall. Can anybody suggest something that will hold weight without tearing it up?

I'd look into a French Cleat type system. It is basically a system of complementary angles (45-45, 30-60, etc.) where one piece is screwed into a stud(s) and the other is part of the shelf.

Do you have dimensions on the shelf? Looks like a great way to store and display.

KFSchmidt, the cabinet is 71" tall, 38" wide. The top shelf is 11" deep and the bottom is 17" deep. My wife wants me to remove the glass from the doors and replace it with wire fence to make it look a bit more rustic. Also so the glass doesn't get broke if something falls over.
