l can always depend on coffee. One of my coworkers was so nice and bought me a Keurig maker (something I’ve always wanted) plus an assortment of K-cups and the drawer to store all of them. Now I want to create a cute corner on my counter of everything I need. You see, it’s functional but some of my traveler cups are too large to go under the keurig dispenser. So I end up grabbing a mug only to pour it in my travelers cup to head to work. That’s not really functional because most times I end up spilling hot coffee on my hands in the process. I need some sort of a funnel LOL.
I need cute jars to store my different creamers so I can easily see when I need to replenish. I also would want some sort of canister that can pour sugar. In the morning when I’m ready to walk out of the door, I don’t want to open additional drawers and pull out spoons and then rinse spoons off etc. I want to simply pour. I need a cute tray to group all of these things so it doesn’t seem cluttered. I need a chrome frame so I can swap out the print seen here. All of my appliances and the backsplash has stainless steel and chrome finishes. I would like to place that by the coffee area instead of my office.
Then I can get even fancier and put cinnamon and other garnishes in salt and pepper shakers. I think I will want a jar of coffee beans so in the morning on weekends, I can open the jar to give out that fresh aroma smell that I don’t really get with the Keurig maker.
I think if you take the time to really jazz up an area of your home that you really love, you may even avoid spending money elsewhere. By having a station set up at home with everything you need, you may want to make it at home versus spending time in someone’s line and giving money away.
What is your drink of choice in the morning? I do believe I need to start upping my smoothie intake. I bought some chia seeds for them but for you coffee lovers, here is a post on repurposing bar carts and making coffee stations.
