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!



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


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.


You should have 2 L’s.


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”


and the sides.


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


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


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


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


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?

    I love the display I built! I used the plans at www. to build it – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha

    Go to – click the red link above for some more plans! Best of luck on your building adventures!
