Coffee craze

My dream has come true.

Well, kind of.

A while back I fell in love with a coffee bar on pinterest. I would absolutely love to have something like that in my home someday. Being as I rent and have no idea if/when I’ll be moving next and also have limited space, it’s not really in the cards for me to have something like that right now. But I may have found a starting block…

As I was setting up my new coffee pot on Wednesday night when I got back to Columbia (priorities, people. My laundry may not be done and my bags may not be unpacked, but I’ll be damned if I can’t have my coffee), I realized that my coffee area took up a lot of space in the kitchen. Even moreso with a bigger pot. I was trying to figure out how to make my space more efficient when the tiny counter space that we had no idea what to do with called my name.

So, I decided to make a small-scale coffee bar. Or counter, if you will.

Here’s a better look at the set-up.

It’s not as elaborate or awesome as the original coffee bar, but it’s a start. And now all my coffee items are in one place without taking up half of my kitchen counter space. I’m searching for a potentially bigger basket, but I figured I’d start small and see how the space works for me. So far, though, I love it.

The sad thing is I’ve actually created something similar in my office using my old coffee pot. The way I make coffee is a bit strong for other people’s tastes, so now Lindsay and I can brew our own little pot when we need an extra jump start to our day. I’m still making a few other changes in the office, but that’s the most important one.

    Very clever use of space – your design is clean and simple yet extremely efficient. I love it! Kudos!
