Coffee Bar Reveal

When Andrew and I made the decision to buy a house, we wasted no time gathering items that would soon reside in our new abode. When I saw the idea for a coffee bar here, I knew we had to do our own.

We found a sweet little table at our favorite thrift store and decided it would be the perfect redo. You can read about that here.

Everything else seemed to fall right into place and we now have the perfect little spot for all our morning coffee dates. 

Want to know what made our little corner come together? See below!

    1. Thanks for the comment! We are pretty happy with it too. :)

  2. I love it! We're in the process of making a coffee bar ourselves! What was the price of that fantastic wall hanging (the one your cups and etc. are stored in)? I'm pretty sure I need one in order for my life to be complete :)

    1. Thanks, Heather!! It is from Hobby Lobby and if I remember right, it was $60 with our coupon. I'm sure your coffee spot is turning out great! :)

  3. So cute! Great work!

  4. I would love to get that wall hanging. Do you know what it is called? I am searching Hobby Lobby and I can't find it. Thank you so much and great job!

  5. I absolutely love this! I've had your inspiration pinned for a while. I love yours even more. Turquoise is my favorite. :)

  6. I love this! I can't wait to create something similar in my home :)

  8. I just stumbled upon your blog while looking for ideas for a coffee bar. I was excited to see an Alterra canister in these pics and find out you're from WI! I'm from WI too and love Alterra! You're blog is super cute and I share your interests of cooking, crafting, and repurposing. Stop by sometime:

  9. I've had my eye on this wall hanging since last year. Now I definitely NEED IT:-) lobe the dresser color also.

  10. Your coffee bar is absolutely stunning! I meant to write to you earlier.. have liked your coffee bar on my blog. Do stop by!

  11. Hello,
    Do you have the sku # or model number from Hobby Lobby? scanning their website adn cant find it. Thank you very much.

  12. Black Metal & Wood Shelf with Baskets & 7-Hooks
    sku# 263558

    I found it!!! I scanned and scanned through the site and couldn't find it either. Finally just googled the description and it came right up. I think I am going to try the Hobby Lobby they just built in my town though before I order it online :) An excuse to finally check it out. Am tired of the cranky ladies at JoAnns! Time to get a new craft store.

    1. Thank you for sharing! I was looking all over for something like this and the product name and sku really helped :)

  13. Hi! Ironically I had purchased this exact shelf before seeing this blog for this exact use to safe space in my kitchen. Great minds think alike! :) I have a question, as my husband is going to be working all day and I'm not the most savy when it comes to hanging items (but I want to surprise him with the completed project when he gets home), what did you use to nail it/screw it into the wall. I wanted to make sure I use something heavy duty enough to hold everything.

    Thanks! Steph

  14. How adorable! If I drank coffee, I would totally do this! Well, I might still do it, but instead of Coffee, I can use my Soda Stream stuffs. Thanks for sharing! :)

  15. Hi,

    friends are also using your services, they are also fully satisfied with you and your services. Thanks for sharing the helpful information. I am waiting for your upcoming services.

    Have a nice day...!!

    Healthy Coffee
