For Christmas, we gifted ourselves a Keurig. I am not a coffee drinker and Steve lives on the stuff, so I assumed we were pretty much getting it for him…but then I discovered the world of Keurig cider, cocoa, and tea! So now I love our Keurig too. What I did not love about ol’ K is the amount of counter space it hogs. This was not jiving with me…after trying the coffee machine near every conceivable outlet in our entire kitchen, I came up with a plan.
We moved our media stand into the “dinnette” nook to use as a coffee bar table. I grabbed some things we had around the house and FINALLY hung up our word art that’s only been sitting around for 6 months or so. The only thing I bought for this was the his and her mug holders. I found them at Hobby Lobby and got both of them for $7.00 total thanks to an awesome 50% off sale.
I wanted to have one side as a coffee bar and one side as a wine bar…however, the universe is thwarting my efforts right now, so Lucy’s food has been promoted to the special kids table as a place holder.
I lucked out and happened to have 3 baskets in the closet that fit perfectly. The dishes in the cabinet is my mismatched china collection…remind me to blog about it someday. I needed somewhere to put tea, and I had a blue glass wide mouth jar down in the basement that did the trick nicely.
I found my little mirrored tray for $4.00 at Goodwill. My jars were from Target along time ago, I just personalized them with chalkboard vinyl and my Silhouette.
I’m loving this small piece of completed-ness in our house of chaos. It feels SO GOOD to finally have something on the walls. Anyone else doing some reorganizing? Did you put together a coffee bar? Move your entertainment center somewhere else when it no longer worked with your house?? Do tell!
