Okay, Okay, I am NOT good at keeping up on my blog. This I know. I have had a super busy summer and fall. It was full of cabin time, family time and even a trip home to Minnesota to see some family.
But yet here I am with a super cute project. I can’t wait to show you.
In our house, we love all things coffee. Cups included. As you can imagine, people know this about us. So whenever it’s time for someone to buy us a gift for a birthday or Christmas, a cute coffee cup is the logical choice. And we LOVE our coffee cup gifts.
So much so, that when we are overflowing our cupboard with coffee cups, we don’t get rid of them, we build a rack so we can keep them and display them!
We have had this old pallet under our overhang on the side of our shed for years now. It was the perfect pallet for the job. Real weathered and filthy. No problem. I sprayed it off and cleaned it up with a brush.
We had to shorten the pallet from it original size because of the spot where we put it in our kitchen. We took a couple pieces off the front in order to make some shelves on the rack. You know, for all my cute items. 😉
Our dog is inspecting his work. 🙂
Keep in mind, if you do this project and I really think you should, every pallet is going to be different and unique in size and age.
If I had a new pallet, I might consider painting it or staining it to match the colors in the area I want to put it.
Another way to make this your own, hooks and knobs. So off to Hobby Lobby I went. If you keep an eye on their website, you can find out when their knobs and hooks will be 50% off. This is what I did. That is a huge savings.
I went with a random pattern and non matchy match knobs along with a few hooks. One thing to note, try out a few coffee cup handles on the knobs as they will not all fit.
The finished product is my favorite. It was a 1/2 day project so it wasn’t a huge deal. It was easy and such a space saver. This one exceeded my expectations. Every time I have something in mind, It always turns out better than I had hoped. Thanks to my husband who is always willing to help me.
Sorry about the quality of these photos but you can still see the cute factor right?
I have two more super easy projects that we did this summer. One with my daughter and another one with my husband. I’ll get to it. I will…I will.
Until next time my friends! <3
