    • Flush mount hooks
    • Screws and drill

    • Drill
    • Self-tapping sheet metal screws

    • Wood glue
    • Cup hooks with screws
    • Drill

    INSTRUCTIONS:

    TO CREATE THE COFFEE MUG STORAGE:

    1. Paint the plaques and mugs to match your décor if desired. Allow to dry completely.

    2. Lay your coffee mug on the plaque and mark with chalk where you need to place your glue. Because most mugs have a lip, it will not sit flush to the plaque.

    3. Add glue to the plaque and lay coffee mug down. Hold in place and let dry.

    PRO TIP: The full drying time of Gorilla Glue is 24 hours.

    4. Mount onto the wall with flesh mounting hooks, store spoons, stirrers etc. and enjoy!

    TO CREATE THE TEACUP STORAGE:

    1. Paint the plaque to match your décor if desired. Allow to dry completely.

    2. Use your pliers to bed your spoons. Brace one end of the spoon on a sturdy worktable with your hand, use your other hand pliers to bend the spoon with the pliers.

    3. Attach the spoons to the plaque with the self-tapping screws and drill. Drill the screw into the center of the bowl of the spoon, make sure to hold the end of the spoon tightly or it will spin. Repeat with each spoon.

    4. Add the french cleat, hang, organize teacups and enjoy!

    TO CREATE THE RECLAIMED WOOD MUG STORAGE:

    1. On a worktable, lay the 1” x 2” pieces down and apply wood glue to the top.

    2. Place the planks of reclaimed wood down, stagger them if desired. Allow the wood glue to dry for 24 hours.

    3. Use a drill to add the cup hooks.

    4. Paint phrase on if desired. Allow to dry.

    5. Use a French cleat to hang, store coffee mugs and enjoy!
