Small Dresser Turned Coffee Bar

There aren’t many things better than a fresh cup of coffee (or tea) in the morning. Right? I, however, haven’t always been a connoisseur of the bean. In fact, it wasn’t until recently that I actually started drinking coffee in my own home. That’s right. And it is all thanks to a tiny little coffee machine and a small dresser turned coffee bar.

I used to be one of those frothy-sugar-filled-fancy-flavored drinks kind of people. You know what I’m talking about. Can you say Frappucino? Anyway, in an effort to cut down on coffee related expenses, I asked Santa for a Keurig for Christmas this past year, so I could make more delicious coffee at home.

Yes, I know you can use a traditional coffee maker to get the job done, but I enjoy the simplicity of a one cup job. I started to experiment with different flavors and types of K-Cups and this picky girl found a few I really love. (My current favorite is Starbucks Caramel with a splash of milk and a few drops of liquid stevia.) Don’t worry! None of the ones I didn’t like went to waste. My hubby will drink pretty much any kind of coffee.

So what’s this business about a small dresser turned coffee bar?

Well, when we moved into The Country House, I wanted to keep the items on the counters to a minimum. And lucky for us, we have an abundance of dressers in our home. (I think there are currently 7!) So we moved this simple white dresser into a corner of our dining room to be our coffee station.

It is just perfect for corralling almost all of the items we need when making coffee, or tea, or hot cocoa. On the top, we found a cool metal drying rack to hang all of our mugs on. I organized all of the K-Cups and extras, like tea, cocoa, sugar, and cinnamon in the top drawer of the dresser, to keep them accessible, but hidden from plain view.

Hanging above the dresser is a cool little art idea that I stole from Emily over at Jones Design Company a few years ago. It is actually a framed tea towel!

I love storing all of our coffee related items together for ease of use. Plus, when I make coffee at home, I’m saving myself a bunch of cash! So, what do you think about our small dresser turned coffee bar?
