Wall Mounted Coffee Bar: Instructions

First, line up the 4 Rustic Bins, and clamp them together tight. Attach a metal french cleat to the set of bins for heavy-duty hanging.

Next, mark out 3 rows of 3 hooks on the Framed Rustic Pallet with a measuring tape and pencil marks. Screw 3/4″ cup hooks in at each pencil mark.

The first several steps are quick and easy, but the final piece — the “Coffee” Sign — will require a bit more time. Begin by printing out the “Coffee” Template (download here). Once printed, cut it out and rub chalk all over the back of the paper.

Once the backside of the paper is covered in chalk, place it onto the Rustic Provincial Board. Use a pencil to draw the outline of the “Coffee” letters onto the paper. When the outline is drawn on the front of the paper, the chalk will be transferred onto the board.

Use the chalk outline as a guide for the Creative Woodburner Detailer. Go slowly, first by tracing over the outlines with the Woodburner. Next, use the Woodburner inside the outline, by making repeated horizontal lines in order to fill in the letters.

I promise, even a beginner can use the Creative Woodburner Detailer. Don’t believe me? Well, this is only my second wood burning project and I’ve never had any formal training. Granted, I’m no pro — but even if you are a beginner, don’t be afraid to give this technique a try!

Finally, stain each item. I chose a gray stain, applied it with a foam brush, and wiped it away with a clean rag.

All done? Fill it up with all of your coffee-making goodies. The bins can hold sugar, coffee beans, k-cups, and more. Of course, this isn’t just a functional project — enjoy hanging your favorite coffee mugs on the hooks, too!
