Repurposed Coat Rack to Coffee Cup Holder

Use a cheap dollar store expanding coat rack for organized coffee cups.
Coffee cups organized
$1 expanding coat rack from the dollar store.
Give it a couple coats of Krylon Fusion spray paint for plastic. Other spray paints won't dry well on plastic.
Always take your time with spray paint. You want nice even coats that have completely dried before starting the next coat.
All dry and waiting for cups.

    Here is a picture showing that is a mug rack not a coat rack.

    Its very cute... but it does take up a lot of wall space for 3 mugs. I had something very similar to this growing up and it was a coat rack. If you extend it all the way out you have 10 pegs to hang from. Of course we did not put anything heavy on it. Mostly scarves and belts inside our closets. But it was made out of wood.
