How to Make a Chippy Coffee Sign with Hooks

Today I used pieces from an old trellis to create a chippy coffee sign mug holder...

I began with an old broken trellis from my garden...

I cut five pieces to the same length and attached them with two cross boards on the back.

The chippy pieces can be sealed with Miss Mustard Seed Tough Coat Sealer so there will be no more chipping. It leaves a matte finish that seals without a shine.

I used a stencil from Old Sign Stencils by Funky Junk Interiors for my design. These stencils are well made and easily customizable,  you can use all or part of the stencil for your project.

The hooks for this project came from D Lawless Hardware. The hooks are inexpensive and perfect for holding mugs.

This chippy little sign is perfect for a small kitchen space or as a sign on a coffee bar. 

As expected, it didn't last long in the shop.
