Ever since my kitchen reno began, I've been dreaming of ways to improve the way I've styled the top of the fridge, area around the sink and my sideboard. I kept changing it up, but nothing really felt right.
Last week I decided that my coffee pot takes up too much valuable counter space - not to mention all the mugs I have in my limited number of cupboards. I read a blog post on creating a coffee bar in your kitchen and then the wheels began turning...
I moved the coffee pot onto my sideboard right away and with the coffee pot came the mugs I use most. Then the containers for coffee and sugar. I like to use paper filters as well as my gold filter (easier cleanup!) and I had a spare matching canister, so the filters were promptly "decanted". I made clay tags for the containers, brought in an old fruit crate (another garage sale find) that I scrubbed with Murphy's Oil Soap and then oiled with baby oil to give the wood a bit of a sheen.
I used the extra hooks from my pot rack to hang the cups on and moved things around on my shelf. I LOVE it!!
