:: coffee bar update









Hello, how are you today?
I thought I would share some updates to my Coffee Bar with you.
I'm so excited about my new Cuisinart coffee maker & hot water dispenser.
Trust me when I say it's Da Bomb.....for reals.


This new addition required me to make a few changes to my setup as you can see.
Our new appliance allows us to make other favorite hot beverages such as tea & hot cocoa,
so I added them to the bar so that everyone in the family can enjoy their cold weather favorites.
Not only that, but it's perfect for instant oatmeal & cup o' soups....it's so awesome.


No more tea kettle on the stove just waiting & taking forever, 
now we have instant hot water woo hoo.


Since I've added several new beverage options,
I decided to label each canister to alleviate any confusion.
I made my tags out of Shrinky Dinks and tied them on with my trusty twine.

I love how they turned out...


what do you think?

Well, my nose & toes are a little chilly from sitting in my very cold studio...
I think I'll go warm up with a cup of Russian Tea....mmmmmm.

  1. It is dreamy. I would love to have a coffee/tea bar. My husband got a new coffee maker for FREE from Sur La Table because he is a constractor for them on a reno project right now. Anywho, it is a Breville...very very cool. I have four children (16-21yrs old) who all drink coffee(I'm the only one who doesn't) and they love it! We did get a Cuisinart smoothie maker(for free from them too) I've been making smoothies daily..so easy. I do have a place in our kitchen that I would like to transform into a coffee/tea bar someday and yours is one of my inspirations! Enjoy, it's beautiful!

  10. So cute! I have the exact same ironstone sugar bowl, and it's on proud display in my kitchen, too. Although my coffee station isn't nearly as cute as yours. Now I'm inspired.

  14. I'm not sure how this post could get any better... and then I found out your name is Carrie too! mine is spelled Kerry. Anyway, AHH I can't believe I haven't found your blog before now. I am IN LOVE! So, I already have the pot rack, but in this case coffee mug holder. I'm wondering where you got the "bar." I absolutely love it and I have the perfect space in my kitchen/dining room to set this up. I'll definitely send pictures when it's all done :)

    Ok, now I'm going back to perusing the rest of your fabulous page!!

  21. Could you possibly share the measurement of your cabinet and how tall your baskets are? I love the idea and may be able to make my own. I have found one similar at JCPenny.

  27. I had twenty others things that needed to be done today, but my cabinet is crowded with my collection of Starbucks City mugs and I have the perfect location and never realized it till I saw your coffee bar of where else to put them..... the built in desk in the breakfast nook that is nothing more than a catch all at the moment!! I love how one persons creativity leads to someone else's creativity! I'd better get busy!

  39. LOVE the coffee bar! I went and bought the *last* shelving unit at Hobby Lobby and the cashier actually asked "you saw this on pinterest didn't you??" You're famous! Question: My fiance and I tried to hang the shelving on studs but only 1 side of the shelf lined up to a stud. Did you hang yours on studs or just dry wall? Did you just use regular wood screws or a toggle bolt or anything? I hung the shelf without putting much weight on it *yet* to make sure it holds but wondering what your experience was. Thanks so much for sharing the fantastic idea--I would have never found that shelf otherwise!
