A few weeks ago the kitchen table broke so we moved it out to the trash and realized how much better our kitchen space worked without the huge table in the way. There is a small room off to the right of where the table was before that was designated for a dining table, but we never put a table there because it was carpeted. However, since we loved how much space there was in the kitchen now that the table was gone we decided not to put the new table back in the kitchen and to put it in the designated dining room space instead. We plan on switching the floors out eventually so we didn’t think it would make much of a difference where it is for now. Oh yeah, we also don’t ever use the table to eat at anyways.
Now that the striped accent wall was completely free we figured it would be a much better location for our coffee bar.
I decided to move the media console from my room to the kitchen to use as a coffee bar.
The console table was just too large for the small space in my room and the current table we were using as a coffee bar was just too small. Here’s what we were using as our coffee bar before
I repainted the console table Behr Lunar Surface to add some contrast to the very bright kitchen.
I got the chalkboard from Hobby Lobby on sale for $5 and then used chalkboard markers to write a quote on it that I felt worked well with our family – especially my mom!
“GIVE ME COFFEE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN & WINE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CANNOT”
I added paper cache letters spray painted with Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze to spell out “COFFEE”
Jake brought me the smaller sign from his work (The Lucketts Store) which was a perfect addition to our coffee bar.
Picked these awesome distressed arrow hooks up from @hobbylobby yesterday! I'm so excited to find an awesome use for them! Aren't they cool?? #hobbylobby #hobbylobbyaddict #arrow #distressed #wallhooks #wallhook #diy #diyproject #project #blog #homedecor #homedecorblog #homedecorating #homedecorblogger
I got the distressed arrow hooks from hobby lobby. Unfortunately they aren’t available anymore, but hobby lobby is my #1 place for awesome knobs and hooks!
The coffee mugs are from Target.
I’m super pleased with how it turned out & it is a much better working coffee bar than before!
