I admit it, I am an addict! A COFFEE ADDICT! I drink coffee on the daily, every.single.day! I wonder if its genetic because my parents, are also a part of the coffee addict community. If you are a coffee drinker then you probably more then likely have the coffee mug cabinet, we all have one, don’t lie! I have so many coffee mugs that I have a cabinet dedicated just for my coffee mugs. So I thought, what if I displayed some of my pretty mugs, and cleaned out a little space in my cabinet! GENIUS! So I have made cute coffee mug holder that I can hang on the wall or side of the cabinet to display some of the prettier coffee mugs in my collection.
Things you will need:
- Wood! (in size of your choice, mine is 1ftx2ft bout 1/4 inch thick)
- Spray Paint & Acrylic Paint (colors of your choice)
- Sand Paper
- Sawtooth hook kit
- Mug Hooks
- Quote printed on paper & Pin
- Paint for quote + Brushes
- Sealant or top coat
- Painters Tape
Lets Do This!
- First off we are going to prep our wood. If yours needs sanded go ahead and sand it, mine didnt need sanded so I started off with a spray paint coat of white! Let Dry!
- Now paint your main coat, I wanted a streaky, worn, rustic look, so I was kind of sloppy with this layer! I just used a large paint brush and some dark red acrylic paint. Let Dry!
- Now I’m using a piece of sand paper and just lightly sanding to sand of a little of the red paint to expose some of the white, to give it a worn look.
- Once you have the look you want, tape your quote or graphic where you want it using some painters tape.
- Now using a pen trace out the quote or graphic using good pressure, same technique I always use for putting words on wood. Remove the paper and you have the outline of your quote indented in the wood.
- Now using a paint pen or acrylic paint, trace the words and fill them in.
- Once that is dry top coat it with some kind of sealant. This is optional but I like to do it to keep my words from wearing off. I used Mod Podge Spray Sealer but you can use whatever kind you prefer. Let Dry.
- Now we are gonna nail the saw tooth hanger centered towards the top on the back of our sign, so we can hang it on the wall.
- Finally the final step, hang the mug hooks. I used a large mug of mine to eyeball how far apart to put them from each other but you can just randomly stick them around if that’s what floats your boat.
- Hang your board onto the wall or side of cabinet and you are ready to display your beautiful mugs! 🙂
