My New Coffee Station

Hello everyone. Did ya think I dropped off the deep end? I’m not even sure if anyone still reads my blog any more but since it’s more like a journal to me I’m going to try to keep it up again. I love looking back and seeing how things have changed, how my children have grown, the trouble I’m getting into etc.
So with that in mind I wanted to show off my new little coffee station. Like most people I always had my coffee maker somewhere on my kitchen counter. And if you’re like me, kitchen counter space is VERY valuable. Like seriously prime real estate. 

But I had a dilemma. I didn’t know where else to put it. My dining area is very small and I didn’t want something my chair was going to hit every time I got up from the table so I couldn’t put a buffet table there because it would be to wide. My hutch that I have in there isn’t tall enough in the middle for me to open the coffee maker hatch. *sigh* I thought I was doomed to have it on my counter for the rest of my coffee lovin’ life. 

But alas, I had a brilliant idea. While sitting in my craft room one day I looked over at my cubby thingy. It stores all my yarn, unfinished projects etc. It seemed to be the perfect size for that space in the dining room. I got to emptying it off (I wanted to make sure it worked before I went out and bought another one) and quickly slid it into place. It was perfect. Not to wide and not to deep. And as a bonus I was able to get all my cookbooks in there so they are more assessable.

I also knew I wanted a chalkboard thing above it and as luck would have it my hubby had a picture frame out in his shop, so he painted it and put my chalkboard in it and I love it. I can change up what it says just for fun.
Enough jibber jabber. Here’s my new little coffee station/cookbook holder.

Well there you have it.
Do you have a coffee/tea/cookbook station?
Have a lovely day! Smile with tongue out

  3. Kim, that is super cute!! I'm about to do a major kitchen overhaul, so maybe this cuteness will inspire me :)

    By the way, I retired from A Million Skies and have a new blog now called The White Front Porch, where I'm writing about our old farmhouse.

    Come visit me!

  5. I love your coffee station! I love your whole room!I don't have room for a coffee station anywhere in my house. It is just too small and already too full, but I do love the idea. Maybe some day I will have a house and the room for one. I do have a small hutch that holds all my cook books but it will not accommodate a coffee maker, nor is there an outlet to plug one in. So I will look at yours and dream.
