My husband and I live off coffee. Come on, we have two kids under two. That glorious nectar of the gods is the only thing that makes us functioning adults most days. So, we built a shrine to our addiction in our kitchen.
This project was so simple and affordable! I’m excited to share it with you today.
Simply find an area of your kitchen that doesn’t look so hot.
We had a board that collected a little bit of everything. Admit it, you’ve got that spot too. We took it down and put up some simple shelves made from one piece of reclaimed barn wood, cut in half.
Then, we found some simple brackets and mounted them in the space above our coffee and espresso machines. (Yes, we are so addicted we need two forms of hot caffeinated beverages available to us at all times.)
Then, I got to shop! Yippee! New shelves mean a new display area, amen? So, I found some fun & colorful mugs (Target, $4.99), a fun bowl to hide the coffee filters and some antique mason jars for the beans – and voila! Coffee Central.
A simple and fun project that not only improves the look of our kitchen, but helps make one of our most needed items readily available.
What do you think? How could you make coffee more accessible and conversational in your home?
