DIY Gold Dot Coffee Mug

Today I have yet another Coffee Inspired blog post. If you've been reading my blog for a little while (or for only a week) then you are well aware of my Cup of Joe addiction. You can get up to date on this obsession by checking out this post and this one.

Now that you'll all caught up lets' move on to one of the cutest DIY's ever.

If you've been on Pinterest I'm sure you've seen this.  I decided to give it a try since we have a ton of coffee mugs around here (the one I used was scored at Goodwill for around $0.49).

Items you'll need:
Coffee Mug

The next step is pretty simple, just doodle away! I decided to go for the dot look inspired by this Kate Spade Dish Set.

Once you're happy with your doodle place the coffee mug into a baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Side note: I do not recommend vacuuming while your coffee mug is baking because when the timer goes off you might not hear it (true story).

Taadaaaa!  There you have it!

I haven't ran this mug through the dishwasher yet.  I've heard conflicting comments while perusing pinterest that the sharpie will wash away, while others say it lasted through the wash just fine.  If you have any experience with this feel free to leave me comment below. 

Now to my cup of coffee......
