DIY vertical mug holder.

Over the weekend, Chris and I worked on this.
I've always wanted a mug holder to display the quirky little gems I find at thrift stores and inherit from family. We were never exactly successful in finding something that fit the bill. A countertop one would take up too much precious space. A horizontal one wouldn't really fit in with my kitchen.

So we decided to take matters into our own hands and DIY it. Oh and I'm so glad we did. These boards were $4 each at Hobby Lobby. We found some walnut stain and went for it. I love the color. The hook hangars (each different) were 50% off at Hobby Lobby. $1.50 each. Chris, my handyman, measured, screwed in the hooks and painted the screws to match the bronze-ish tone. He did awesome. So mostly, this was his project.
