When I brought in the baker’s rack to swap out the wash basin that I was using for our coffee station, I was kind of married to the idea of having the coffee maker and supplies in that corner of the kitchen. I liked the idea of a “coffee station”, it was functional and everything was together, and it got an appliance off my counter.
But the coffee maker lid couldn’t open underneath the shelf above it in its new home with the baker’s rack, which has meant that every morning I’ve lugged the coffee maker and the coffee canister to the kitchen counter to make coffee, and back again when I’m done. I threw around ideas of finding a coffee maker that was more conducive to that spot, but ours is working just fine for our needs and I’d rather spend money (and gift wishes) on other things.
Last night I decided to finally took some time to work on styling the open shelving (which is now all up except for a couple nails for extra support!). As I moved things around and decided what should go where and how the shelves could be best utilized (without freaking Brad out that I’d maxed out the weight on them with stacks of dishes…sigh), I decided to try moving the coffee station. I’ll do another post with better and more detailed pics and explanations of what’s where (from my camera, not my iPhone as these are), but I’m so excited how it’s coming together that I had to share!
