DIY Coffee Mug Display

Hey guys! In honor of Valentine’s Day and Ryobi’s February challenge, we made this cute Coffee Mug Display 🙂 We LOVE coffee – that counts right?

It’s quick and easy to build your own. I’m going to show you how I did it but you need to go over to our friend Jamison’s site – Rogue Engineer and download the FREE Plans! And while you’re there, click around a bit and check out all of the awesome furniture he and his wife Jamie have been busy building!

make-cuts

Start by making all of your cuts – 2×4’s, 1×3’s and 1×2’s.

build-L

Next, build the “L” pieces by attaching the 1×2 and 1×3 boards to each other with wood glue and 1 1/4″ brad nails.

L

You should have 2 L’s.

attaching-L

Now, attach one 2×4 to one end of the “L” pieces.

I used wood glue and brad nails here too. I nailed through the top of the “L”

attach-L-from-side

and the sides.

attach-bottom-2x4

Then, do the same to the other end of the “L” pieces.

attach-middle-2x4s

Add the middle 2×4’s the same way and that’s it for construction 😉

Varathane-Carrington

Now for the finish! I applied one coat of Varathane Carrington stain to the entire piece.

distress-with-sander

When it dried, I added some cute hooks and it was ready for the wall!

add-hooks

To attach it to the wall, I just drove 3″ screws from the front of the display into the studs behind the wall. Make sure to mark your studs and use a level!

That’s it! Easy enough right?
