You can make this any size you want, I made mine a little smaller than I wanted, but I needed it to fit on a certain wall, so I had to adjust the dimensions. Here's the size I used, but once again, you can adjust it to be wider and taller.
2- 1x2s @ 30"
5- 1x1s @ 12" (found in the molding aisle)
20- 1/4" dowels @ 3"
10 corner brackets
Drill and 1/4" drill bit
2 D-rings for hanging
Step 1: Cut the wood the length you need. My complete project was 30" high by 15" wide. So, my 1x2s are cut at 30" and my 1x1s are at 12".
Step 5: Add the dowels. I placed a drop of glue into each hole and then added the dowels as far as they could go in. You can use a hammer here also to make sure they are in. This is where you mugs will hang, so make sure they are secure!
Disclaimer: As with all projects on my site, make this at your own risk. I have made mine, and love it! When using power tools, follow all safety precautions and use your equipment as designed. My cups have yet to fall from the wall and break, but that doesn't mean yours won't, so please be sure to make sure the integrity of your piece meets the weight that you put on it!

I was provided product by DecoArt and compensated to write about this project, but all thoughts, opinions, and ideas are my own :)
You can learn more and see all their patterns here.
So, to get started, I set up the canvases.
All You Need" template. I painted my canvas as suggested.
Funny story here...I picked this stencil because "All You Need Is Love" by the Beattles was our first dance song at my wedding. It wasn't supposed to be, but the AV stopped working and we couldn't get our music to play, so my mom's friend ran to here house which was close by, grabbed her CDs and boombox (are those still even thing? lol) and 'saved' the day! The best song out of all of her CDs was the Beattles "All You Need Is Love". And so, that little song is dear to my heart....brings up some memories that cause a little anxiety too, but it's fun to look back on it now :) ...and who doesn't love coffee? So, this was the perfect pattern to paint for me!
Love You To The Moon" and "Mermaid Tales" were the other designs.
Also, visit their social media pages for some inspiration!
