Oh coffee! Sweet nectar of the wakey-wakey gods, how I love you! In my opinion there is no better way to start the day than a hot cup of coffee and some to-do list writing 🙂 Unless of course its FANCY coffee and list writing! Some days a girl just needs some fancy coffee 😉
I’ve got to tell you that I am SUPER excited to be celebrating the new Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods. And you know what that means? Fancy coffee that I can make at home! And my new favorite fancy coffee needs a pretty new home to live in… so I made myself a new DIY Farmhouse Coffee Sign to hang above my coffee bar!
DIY Farmhouse Coffee Sign Supplies:
Solid wood piece (roughly 9 x 12 inches)
“Ivory” and “Ink” colored paint
Paintbrushes (one with a fine tip)
Computer and Printer
Drill and Small Drill Bit
Step #1: Paint your solid wood piece in ivory. Let dry and then sand to distress as desired.
Step #2: Lay your basket where you want it secured to your wood piece. Mark where you want to drill your holes. Drill holes with drill bit only slightly larger than the wire you’ll be using.
Step #3: Using your favorite font and editing app, create a “Coffee” template for your sign. Or you can use this one. Print out at full size.
Step #4: On the back of your template, color a thick layer of pencil over the text area. Then center the word template on your wood piece, right side up. If desired, tape in place so it doesn’t move. Using a pen, trace the outline of the word, leaving a pencil outline transferred onto the wood.
Step #5: Using a fine tipped paint brush, paint on your word, using the pencil outline as a guide. *Painting Tip: I found longer, steady strokes in a downward motion produced the smoothest edge on each letter. Move the wood piece around as needed.* Let Dry completely, then sand to distress if desired.
Step #6: Cut 4 inch pieces of wire and bend in half. Use them to secure the basket to your coffee sign. Twist securely on the backside of the sign and then hammer them flat.
Your DIY Farmhouse Coffee Sign is done! Now you can add string or wire to hang it over your coffee bar, or just set in near your coffee maker!
So now that the DIY Farmhouse Coffee Sign is hanging, its time to get back to fixing our fancy coffee! And you will not believe just how easy it is to make these delicious Starbucks® Caffè Lattes!
Step #1: Pour the flavor packet into the mug.
Step #2: Brew the Starbucks® Caffe Blend K-Cup® pod in your Keurig® brewer and stir to enjoy the beverage!
See! I told you it was easy! Now lets talk about the delicious-ness:
These Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods are made from milk, contain no artificial flavors and are available in 3 tasty flavors – Caramel, Mocha and Vanilla (Caramel is my favorite!), and for a limited time there are also 2 of your favorite Starbucks® seasonal flavors (Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Mocha!) available. These easy and delicious Starbucks® Caffe Blend K-Cup® pods are available nation wide at your local grocery store 😀
Now its time to get your coffee sipping on and relax while you plan out your day! Whats your favorite way to start your day?
