This may come as a surprise, but I am actually not that big of a fan of coffee.  I absolutely love the scent of coffee but the taste not so much.  I am more of a hot chocolate/hot tea type of girl.  My husband however loves his coffee, like most of the world 🙂  When I was asked by Plaid to come up with a project using their FolkArt ® Home Decor Chalk, which just so happens to be one of my favorite paints to work with, I just knew I needed to make this coffee cup holder!   I love to use this particular chalk paint because it’s water-based, there is no need to prime or sand your pieces, it’s Made in the USA, and they have over 41 colors to choose from in 8 oz. sizes and now 2 oz, 16 oz, and 32 oz.  There is a size for all your home decor projects. Coffee Mug Holder

In my home, I have a lot of whites, grays, and shades of mints in my home decor.  For this particular project I used a few different colors of Chalk Paint but the two main colors were Patina and Seaside Villa

Supplies for Coffee Cup Holder:

Coffee Cup Holder Board

I found this wood pallet type at my local craft store but you can use any type of wood that will hold the amount of coffee mugs you want. 

Home Decor Chalk Paint

I started off my painting on a base coat with the Patina chalk paint.  After the base coat dried I did a very light coat of Seaside Villa on different areas of the wood boards.   Then I used the layering block to create a unique distressed look with the Parisian Grey color 

Coffee Cup Holder Layering Block

You simply dip the layering block in paint and in one-motion run it across the board.

I used the layering block with both the mint and gray colors until it was exactly how I wanted it 🙂 

To finish the coffee cup holder just add a few simple hooks.  I laid down all my hooks and mugs BEFORE screwing them down to make sure I had them in just the right place. How to make a Coffee Cup holder
