I am such a procrastinator!!!…even with what’s supposed to be a slower-paced time. Here we are the end of March already and I’m just now getting my DIY post out.
This month’s project is super simple and serves a practical purpose.
My husband happens to be a coffee connoisseur to the point he has a monthly subscription for his fancy coffee to be shipped to our house from Black Rifle Coffee Company. (btw we’re not getting commission off of advertising for them, although we should as much as we buy from them each month😅) Nate also adds new means of brewing methods two or three times a year. With that in mind his coffee obsession was overtaking my countertops and driving me crazy so I created him his very own coffee space…and yes everything on that table and the shelves is all coffee related!!
Now a coffee bar wouldn’t be complete without a coffee mug holder…I had my eyes set on a metal one at a boutique store downtown a while ago but my penny-pincher self wouldn’t allow a purchase sooooo I got crafty and thrifty and created my own. This month’s diy “perk” will show you how you too can make your very own coffee mug holder!!! Super easy!!! Let’s get started!
one 12″ 4×4 lumber
stain/paint and cloth or brush (optional)
If you choose to stain or paint your 4×4 now would be the time to do it.
After staining or painting (if you choose to) you’re ready to mark your wood for nail placement. I did 2 inches down from the top and then the bottom nails placed at 7 1/2 inches from the top. ***NOTE: It’s very important to slightly angle your nails upward when you hammer them in this way your coffee mugs won’t slip off.
You can easily hammer the nails into the sides by pressing the wood against your knee to keep it in place. See photo below.I put nails on three sides of my 4×4 because the backside of it sits close to the wall, you could do all four sides though if you would like to.That’s all there is to it! You’re ready to add mugs!
Remember if you end up making this month’s DIY project I’d love to hear about it!
Blessings! Now let’s bring on April!!
