Pallet coffee cup holder. First, a couple of notes: (1) You may want to power wash your pallet before you dive into this project since you’ll be hanging things that you drink out of on it! (2) I added the COFFEE detail on the top, but this is obviously optional! The top board was longer, so I decided to add some words instead of hooks.

Pallet coffee cup holder. Okay, let’s get started!

We used a fourth of the pallet, so first we decided which fourth looked the best and had the most stable and best-looking wood.

 

We marked where we wanted to cut using a pencil and right angle ruler.

 

Next you cut where we had marked using a circular saw. ****Make sure to wear safety goggles****

 

Once you have your mini pallet, sand it down! How much you sand is up to you, but make sure it is smooth enough that you won’t get splinters when you hang up your coffee cups!

 

Next I painted COFFEE on the top. I used letter stencils and a sponge brush. I’m really happy with how it turned out! (Sorry I didn’t get a picture while I was doing it!)

 

Putting on the hooks was probably the most difficult part. Use a ruler (or tape measure) and pencil to mark exactly where you want the hooks to go, then drill them in. My hooks weren’t totally even, but once we hung the coffee cups you could hardly notice!

 

 

 

We bought these hooks at Lowes for $1.50 each, so we spent a little less than $20 on them. There were cheaper hooks, but I’m so glad we opted for these! I think they make it look really polished. Plus, this was the only material we had to buy for this project!

 

 

I love how well this project turned out!
