Improvised cups holder and kitchen cabinet

I live in a rented house where the kitchen is extremely small. I did not have too many options because my main priority was a house close to my workplace. That being said I need to manage with what there is and… to find a place to store/organize my cups. I love my coffee time and in time I managed to gather more cups than I actually need.

First, I have stored some away that will probably go on freegle or something and for the rest… I needed a place…

The only space I could have fit something was on a small wall near the door that goes in the garden and was completely empty. Lucky me, my landlady was ok with drilling holes in the wall so what I did was to get 2 coat hangers for 1 quid each and a small cabinet that I think is mostly for a bathroom… but for 1 quid as well I didn’t care much because I NEEDED storage space.

My second step was the cabinet that had more screws than I suspected, but after removing all the hardware I was left with:

End here is my updated corner:
