While my parents are here, my dad spent a half day making me this mug rack. I pinned this inspiration photo almost a year ago and haven't been able to get it out of my head. I have a great mug collection and I wanted to display some of them on my wall. My dad and I went to our local hardware store and had this piece of plywood (3/4" thick) cut to size, then he burned it slowly with a blowtorch to deepen the colors, and sealed it with a top coat.
