Since coffee is such a big part of our day we've developed quite a little collection of coffee accessories. Our tiny apartment here in Charleston came equipped with a tiny kitchen counter and our coffee essentials have consumed most of the space. I've been dying to set up some sort of coffee-bar in our kitchen for the last year and I have been hunting for a very specific shelf I saw online a million years ago because I knew it would be the perfect addition to my coffee haven.
WELL, the stars aligned and my coffee bar finally came together!It turns out that my friend Jackie knew were to get the shelf I've been hunting for and she has one of her own in her kitchen! GAH! I ordered that puppy as soon as I could get to my computer and I even found a 40% off coupon for it. Ohhhh how I love a sweet deal.
Rob and I hunted around at furniture consignment shops around Charleston the day after I ordered the shelf and after a looking at few different stores we found the perfect little buffet to use for the bar. It's antique and made of light wood. We scored it for an amazing deal and then sweat our butts off as we tried to cram in in the back seat of our teeny-tiny car in the 100 degree heat. We sanded, primed and then painted it a gorgeous color --Behr Ucalyptus Leaf blue. I used my coffee bar project as an excuse to do some damage at target where I got some coordinating linens, a yellow bowl and fun platter to keep my creamer & sugar on. Pictures below!

The coffee bar now sits pretty in a perfect spot right behind our kitchen table. It's everything I wanted and I'm so excited to share it with you!
