Etceteras: his and her mugs

We take our coffee very seriously in this household. My husband leaves for work very early in the morning and makes the coffee. When I get up, the coffee is in the pot is waiting for me. It’s a nice routine that I enjoy.

So even though we don’t have our weekday coffee together, we can now have his and her mugs.

To make these mugs, I simply painted the dots and hearts onto the mug using Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Metallic paint. According the instructions, the paint can be used on wood, glass, metal and fabric. The curing time for glass is 21 days.

These mugs would make a nice engagement or wedding gift. Or, make a holiday basket by adding coffee beans and homemade sugar cubes. 

In the meantime, I’ll be counting down the days until we can use our new his and her mugs.
