DIY Coffee Hand Painted Sign | With Enough Coffee Everything is Possible

I will admit that I sometimes need a little more caffeine than is probably recommended to get me through the day.  So okay, perhaps EVERYTHING isn't possible but starting my day with a little pep talk over a cup of joe seemed like a good idea.  Bonus: it hides the ugly outlet in my backsplash.

This was a super easy, fun project that I knocked out in a couple of hours with materials I had in the house. I started with a scrap piece of 1/4 inch plywood but you could certainly use something thicker.  I drew out my design with a pencil (and did a lot of erasing) until it looked suitably like a cup.  I wanted something that looked like it might have been found in a thrift shop so perfection was not the goal.

Using jigsaw, I cut out the cup shape and lightly sanded the edges.  I drew over the pencil marks with a marker knowing it would show through a light coat of the white paint.  After a quick white wash, I added some "coffee" and shading using a beige paint. Finally, I used a gold sharpie to retrace the faint marks to make the final markings on the cup.  Done! (9 of 13)
