Well, it's far from complete, but I am deeming it "good enough" to show you what it looks like so far. Sorry in advance for the lighting of all the pictures....here's a picture of my kitchen lights so you can see what I'm working with....
....and I know, I should edit them to make them look better, but you already know the state of my computer.....let's just say I'm not sure it would last through an editing session!
Anyway, back to the coffee bar. We went to IKEA a few weeks ago, and I passed on a few buffets I liked to save some money and found a table instead. It works out perfectly! Here's what it's currently looking like in it's not-yet-finished state.
I love storing things in clear jars.....keeps it fresh and I love the look of it. On the bottom shelf in the penny-candy jar, I have teabags....
On the top, the jars are filled with coffee (for when I can't find the good deals on K-cups, and so we can keep on buying Just Love Coffee!), mini marshmallows (for the kids' hot chocolate), and sugar cubes (because they are cuter than regular sugar!)...
Still on the to-do list: a shelf above the table to hold some mugs and maybe a few more jars! (I would love to have a jar for hot chocolate mix too, but I'm already running out of room!) And how cute would a little honey pot like this one be?! And how about a mini-fridge for my creamers?? I kid, I kid!
I'm also needing a Hobby Lobby run for a little project I'm planning.....hint: Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee :)
I'm really loving this little coffee station so far. It's given me so much more room on my kitchen counters, and the shelf below gives some storage for some items I don't have room for in my cabinets!
How do you take your coffee?
