Since the remodel in the Great Room ~ I’ve started to de-clutter wherever I can! The coffee bar in our home is used more than once daily and always seems to be a place in my home that get’s somewhat messy. I’ve been looking on Pinterest and in stores for ideas to find something that make this space easier on the eye for me, yet functional. I haven’t come across anything that fits what I wanted to do. Laying awake at night (as I do every night thinking of how to organize)…I came up with the idea of using a tiered stand for mugs. I found this one from William Sonoma that fits under my cabinet space perfectly!
I’ve shared this space with you before ~ here. With these pictures what it looked like before. I’ll admit, it looks nice and clean in the photo – but the mugs were clear on the other side of the kitchen next to the column that we just removed…it just didn’t seem practical there any longer. I also decided to box up my Starbucks Mug Collection ~ you can read about it here. And purchase matching ones from Pottery Barn that fit on the stand so nicely. I was able to find my husbands and my first name initials, but decided to not buy the kids first name initials and stock up on a bunch that just have our last name initial “F”. That way anyone can use them. Plus there won’t be any fighting over using certain cups.
At the top of the tier is where I can keep my shot glasses when making the espresso! Such a nice and handy space for them to sit. I put the k-cups, syrups and chocolate powder in the cabinet below where the rest of the breakfast food is stored!
Such a simple idea can go so far, don’t you think? We are loving our new coffee bar, the simplicity of it is so nice.
