When I first saw this little wall in our living room, I instantly thought "Coffee bar!" I had seen so many cute and creative coffee stsations on Pinterest and I always thought it was such a cute way to have a functional yet welcoming space.
I was on the hunt for a unique and rustic table. When this little beauty popped up on a Facebook yard sale site, I knew it was perfect. I paid $25 for this baby! Since it has the fold down sides, I also used it at Thanksgiving one year as an extra space for guests to sit.
My sister-in-law, Ashley, got me the chicken platter and I love it so much that I had to hang it up! I use a metal bucket I got at Tractor Supply to display blankets and throws underneath the table. Not only is it cute, but also super handy for chilly nights watching TV.
I found this tray at a thrift store for $5 and it was also a dark wood tone. So I used some milk paint and added this fun blue color. It didn't turn out perfectly, but I love the pop of color it gives. I keep an assortment of teas and ciders in that green basket for guests to choose what they like. I keep sugar and powdered creamer handy there as well, and love my "M" spoon rest that my Momma got me.
I absolutely am in love with my tea cups that match my dinner dishes. My sweet mother-in-law got them for me for Christmas and they seriously make me so happy! I like displaying them so I can enjoy them every day. I got the green and yellow coffee mugs at the Dollar Tree. Yay for steals!
And that's my coffee stations! I hope this post has given you some ideas for your own coffee/tea bar. It doesn't have to be expensive or high dollar to look cute and make your guests feel at home. Find what you love and I assure you others will love it too!
