Kitchen Coffee Station

*First of all, I know I still owe you a tutorial for the grout on Subway Tile. I'm so sorry - but I had a little bit of trouble getting it all figured it - and I didn't want to give you a false tutorial! ;) But now I've "mastered" it - so tutorial coming soon! I promise! :) 

Our kitchen makeover is moving right along!
 Actually, I just have a few finishing touches - 
and then I'll be ready for the big reveal! :) 
So until then, I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite parts of the new kitchen!
First up? The hub's little "coffee station"! 

I'm not a coffee drinker - I hate coffee actually. I even hate the smell. 
So this area, it's all for the Hubs
He needed this area -- because you see, 
he ALWAYS leaves the coffee & sugar on the counter ... 
and I HATE cluttered counters! 
and I hate nagging him to "put the coffee away", EVERY DAY!
so I decided to designate an area for him & messy coffee ... 
an area where he doesn't HAVE to put anything away! :) 
But an area that still looks "organized" and intentional. 
yet practical. and cute.
that's not too much to ask, is it?! :)

I bring you -- the Coffee Station. 
aka - a place where the hubs can leave all his stinky coffee crap.

So here is it ...Nothing fancy -- but way better than the before! :) 
 It's just a super cheap-o coffee maker, some mugs, serving trays, coffee & splenda! :)
 The big white tray is one of our serving dishes - which worked out perfect, because I didn't really have anywhere to store it - and now it has a place to live until the 2 times a year that I actually need it for serving! The white coffee canister is from good ole Wally world -- only $4! :) and I just love that little spoon. It's so cute it even makes me want to scoop coffee! :) and I hate coffee, remember! :) The little bowl of Splenda is another serving dish that I relocated to this area ... perfect fit.
The mugs are hanging from cheap mug hooks that I picked up at Wally World for .97! 
I pre-drilled a teeny tiny hole and screwed them in! :)

Simple. Practical. Cute.
I love easy changes that make your life easier.
and save your marriage! :)

Have you made a simple change lately that help you stay organize?!
I'd love to hear about it!

  1. I love that you found a way to use and display your serving platter year-round! We all have serving platters that take up valuable shelf space and do not get used like they should. Now I need a cuppa.

  2. I love the idea of the little hooks for mugs. Stealing this idea.
