My mother wanted to add a piece of rustic decor to her kitchen space, but also wanted it to add functionality. I had made her a pallet wine rack before and wanted to continue the theme. I was puzzled on how to store coffee mugs in an easily accesible way and then i was having breakfast at my local diner the next day and i saw mugs hanging on hooks in the back of the dish area. A real 'duh' moment for me. I was able to up my game in terms of aging paint using sand paper and also yellowed up some of the poly i used to finish it to further add some years to the piece.
