Hanging Coffee Mug and K Cup Storage


Declutter your cabinets and counter top with this easy diy coffee mug and k cup holder. The only thing I purchased were the hooks from hobby lobby for about $2 each. The wood is from a pallet I got free from work.

I removed 2 planks from a pallet, sanded them and put them together. I attached 3 pieces cut to size along the back and used a brad nailer and wood glue to mount them together.

Next I made 2 boxes, 5" x 10" with the back open. I used wood glue and brad nails to put it together. I then measured where I would drill the holes. I used a 2" hole saw and an 18v drill.

I then took a map gas torch and scorched the wood to bring out the natural grains. I painted the front of the k cup storage a mocha color. When it dried, I attached it with wood glue and Brad nails to the 2 planks.

After a coat of satin poly, I attached the hooks.

    What is a brad nail? Very innovative and cute, by the way!

      Brad nails are small nails used in my pneumatic nail gun. You can use any nail, but finish nails would be closest to a brad nail.
