Our shelves can’t even handle it!
So when Ready Made posted this Mug Wall DIY, I convinced Daniel to
assist me make it.
[Obviously before the photo above was taken…]
I thoroughly enjoyed scouring the silverware bins at our local Value Village for just the right spoons.
By the way, when selecting spoons, make sure they are slightly malleable. You need to bend them forward slightly in order to slide the mugs into place.
Once supplies were purchased, Daniel measured the strips of plywood and cut them to the desired lengths. And painted.
Painting tips: First mark where each plywood strip will be laid out, then place the painter’s tape down where your chalkboard will go [see photo above and below for visual]. Paint 2-3 layers of chalkboard paint. Allow a day for this to dry and remove tape. Then tape a sheet of newspaper down over the chalkboard. Spray the large piece of plywood. Wait another day until it’s completely dry and continue with the steps below. 🙂
I positioned the spoons and held them down [VERY important job, guys…] while Daniel drilled 3-4 screws per strip of wood, between spoons.
As for hanging purposes, Daniel used wire and hooks, but I’m not so sure it’s strong enough.
I will let you know if my mug wall falls down!
