Simple Coffee Station

We had an empty spot on the kitchen counter next to our coffee maker, so in an effort to make things more convenient for the coffee drinkers in the family (everyone but me) and free up some cabinet space at the same time, I put together a quick coffee station in this little alcove.

I bought the small, white, ceramic tray new and everything else, including the clear canister and the county fair trophy cup, I had on hand.

This is the kind of thing that I like the best: simple, functional, pretty.

  1. Looks great Julie. We drink a lot of coffee so this would be very handy. Love the trophy cup with the spoons.

    1. It’s one of my favorites, too, Yarlette.

  2. I just moved our coffee pot to a new location across the kitchen, and although it makes everything much easier, it’s hard to adapt to change so early every morning! I love the idea of a tray to gather everything together. It looks so pretty.
    Sure you wouldn’t like to sip just a little bit of coffee?

    1. Maybe just a sip, Leslie Anne. 😉

  3. I love the paint color in your living room. The color please?

    1. Kim, in the living room or dining room? The dining room is the room you see in this post and it’s Beigewood by Benjamin Moore. Our kitchen is the same color and you can see more pics of it in these posts: https://creatingthislife.com/tag/kitchen/. Hope that’s what you’re looking for! If not, let me know.
