The Coffee Bar - Take 1

Eric and I are big coffee drinkers. Just to clarify: We're not particularly big people (mostly tall and thin) but the amount of coffee we drink is big. So we have a lot of coffee equipment. And just to throw this out there - I hate clutter. As in, the coffee maker on the counter is too clutter-y for me. So in comes a coffee bar.

I am really excited about this.

First off, we bought a dresser from IKEA and put a coat of polyurethane on top to protect it from water spills. Then we had the paint color of the dresser matched at Lowe's. We used it to paint two floating shelves that we already owned. And this is the result:

This makes me so happy. You have no idea.

And the shelves.

Check out this wonderful mug. You can get your own here:

One last look:
What do you think? Anyone else have a coffee/tea area?


  1. I love this! This makes me want to come over for coffee. Coffee & organization-two of my favorite things!!! :)

  2. I love this! I really want a bar area. Don't get me wrong, I love coffee... But I love wine too :) Good job! I am going to have to see your lovely little house in person next time I come through Norman.

  3. This is seriously cute! Love it!

  4. I love this idea! It looks so good. And your pictures go perfectly too!

  5. I love it and I'll unashamedly admit: we might steal your beautiful idea! :)

  6. Oh-em-gee, what a cute mug! Bahaha... Thanks for the shout-out, buddy.


Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
