DIY Degree: Newbie
- Copper cups, as many or as few as you need (4 are proven right here, however I solely used three)
- three mm leather-based (or suede leather-based) twine within the colour of your selection
- 1×6 pine board, minimize to the size/peak you want
- Paint or stain, staple gun, drill
Step 1: Paint or stain your board. Relying in your choice, you’ll be able to paint or stain your board right here to be the inspiration of your copper cup organizer.
Within the curiosity of time, I used white spray paint + primer in a single. Spray it on in mild strokes to stop dripping, about 4 or 5 coats.
Let it dry completely.
Step 2: Decide copper cup placement. The board I used is 31” tall, and I needed to make use of three copper cups. One of the best distance for his or her use (for pencils and straws to suit simply) was 9” from the underside of 1 cup to the underside of the opposite. (Every cup is four” tall). Dry-run area the cups as you see right here.
Step three: Mark & drill holes. Holding every cup in place, make mild pencil marks on both aspect of the highest of the cup. These are momentary marks, so hold them small and lightweight.
Transfer the cups from the board and use a sq. to mark new holes which are precisely degree and centered – 1-three/eight” in from every edge works properly for this.
Drill holes within the second marks. Your drill bit ought to be large enough to suit the leather-based twine snugly however simply. For 3mm twine, a 5/32 bit works properly.
Step four: Connect copper cups. Thread the top of your leather-based twine by means of one of many holes, from entrance to again.
Staple the top of the leather-based twine down. Staple a number of occasions to ensure it’s safe.
Wrap the leather-based twine as many or as few occasions across the prime of the cup as you need. Tip: If doing greater than two wraps, work from the middle out. Cross the leather-based twine behind the cup in order to maintain a clear, crisp take a look at the entrance. Reduce the twine lengthy sufficient to string by means of the second gap in your board AND staple down on the again.
Pull the leather-based taut, double verify that it seems to be clear and the leather-based crossed (if relevant) isn’t seen. Thread the top of your leather-based twine by means of the opening.
Pull the second twine taut and staple on the again. Tip: Staple the twine at a proper angle to offer additional help and stability.
Step 5: Repeat for all copper cups. Connect all copper cups in the identical means. You’re nearly carried out!
Step 6: Mount the copper cup organizer. A method to do that is to predrill screw holes within the 4 corners of your pine board and screw it to the wall, then paint the screw heads so they don’t seem to be noticeable
Step 7: Fill your organizer cups. You’re completed! All that you must do is put your new stylish leather-based and copper organizer to good use.
