My original thought was to add wood to the top and use it as an island in my kitchen. I may still use this idea in the future but for now I will use it as a coffee bar. I scrubbed the rust and disinfected all the surfaces before moving forward. The letters wrote with a sharpie on the front would simply just not come off...so I had to come up with a solution. I had some of this Country Living chalk paint in black leftover from another project.
I took a paintbrush and painted over the letters leaving stroke marks at the end. I didn't want to cover the whole drawer in black.
I then took a chalk marker and wrote the word "coffee" in a cute calligraphy. Here is the after photo below of how I styled it for my coffee and tea station. Not bad for $3 in my book!
I added this vintage, metal Coca Cola wire basket below to hold all my coffee mugs.
I use a regular, 12 cup coffee maker because I drink several cups throughout the day...so my Keurig really doesn't get used anymore. I added some little spoons, napkins, and some greenery to complete the space along with my tea and sugar canisters. The drawer holds items like my coffee filters and crocheted mug holders.
I used the metal dividers below as storage for my wood cutting boards. I also hung a cute, vintage cutting board from the side. I love coming here in the mornings for my coffee. I found the clock from Hobby Lobby.
I've added a "shop the post" collection below with similar items if you love this look! Thanks for stopping by, I would love to hear what you think of this space!
