Thank you all so much for all of the support and encouragement on our new home. I am so excited to be back working on projects! This DIY K-cup rack was all Nate. I was in town running errands right after we moved into our house and came home to find Nate and his cousin, Mitchell, in the garage creating a k-cup rack for me! For those of you who know me personally, you know that I am really particular when it comes to projects and the stuff the goes up at our home. I was super impressed with the idea and what the boys created in the short time I was gone. WIN! 🙂
My coffee addiction is real. It is how I start every morning and Nate won’t touch it. Because of my love for coffee, we buy our Caribou Blend K-Cups at Sam’s Club. The giant box was an eye sore for months at the apartment. I think Nate was sick of looking at it – and there happened to be an open wall above the Keurig – enter K-Cup Rack.
What you need:
- 1×4 board – cut to desired length. Ours are 35 inches.
- Furring Strip – cut into three pieces to attach to the back of the boards
- Screwing Hooks
- Miter Saw
- Hand sander/sand paper
- K-Cup to measure distance between each board
- D-rings for hanging
- Stud Finder
- Measure the location for your K-Cup rack and use a Miter Saw – or any saw you have available – to cut your 1×4 board into five even pieces. Sand. 🙂
- Lay the pieces out on a flat surface and use a K-Cup to measure the distance needed between each board. You want the K-Cup to be a little snug so it does not fall out of the rack when it is up on the wall.
- At this point we used the stud finder to figure out what distance the furring strips needed to be apart – It is typically 16 inches 🙂
- Use the furring strips to connect the boards. We used a hammer and nails – but you can use screws or staples if you have them handy as well!
- Stain and let dry overnight.
- Screw hooks into the bottom of the rack to hang your favorite coffee cups – Mine are from Rae Dunn clay – I am OBSESSED and have been seeing them all over Instagram. Swoon.
- Attach D-Rings or claw hooks and hang on the wall 🙂
I got a ton of questions on this rack when it was in the background of one of my housewarming/Nate’s birthday party photos. It is really exciting to be able to share it with you, and I hope you have as much fun with these projects as we do.

May your Monday be short and your K-Cup rack coffee be strong. I have a fun and busy week ahead. I am super excited to be serving a meal with my Young Professional group at the Salvation Army on Tuesday and attending my first book club meeting on Wednesday! What an exciting week and Christmas is right around the corner. YAY!
As always – thanks for taking a minute to check-in with our projects and crazy-blessed life.
