Here’s how to style a coffee station with these simple tips
Are you a huge coffee lover? To tell you the truth, Jimmy looooves coffee but I don’t drink it all. I’m a big tea lover so really this post could be all about how to style a coffee AND tea station. I wasn’t planning on putting this on the blog but I recently helped my friend put together her coffee station and it came out so pretty! I had to share it in case it could provide some inspiration if you’re looking to do something similar.
I love going thrifting and antiquing because you can find so many unique treasures to fill your home. I recently discovered a new antique mall in Atlanta called City Antiques and it’s become my favorite place to go treasure hunting. For almost a year, I have been looking for the perfect vintage pepper mill grinder. Can you believe I actually found one at the antique store for $10?! I about peed my pants because these usually cost at least $80. It was in beautiful shape and works great.
Okay back to the coffee station. My friend, Jennifer had been wanting to buy the Breville coffee maker for her husband’s birthday and didn’t know where to place it. Okay, I just checked and it’s on sale for $100 off! Jimmy just told me this thing doesn’t go on sale! If you’ve been eyeing it, this may be the perfect time to pull the trigger. I had a taste of the coffee from this machine and it was delicious! That’s saying a lot since I don’t like coffee.
Jennifer didn’t really want to add it to her kitchen counter since it takes up a good amount of space. We were eating dinner one night at her house and I told her she needed a little coffee station right in this small wall next to her patio door in the breakfast area. It’s still in her kitchen so this really was the perfect spot. That got her really excited and we started looking online for a piece of furniture that would fit those exact dimensions. The pieces we found were either too small, lacked storage, or wasn’t the right style. I recommended taking the time to find a piece that had adequate storage so that it could hold all her coffee essentials.
I told her to try the antique mall because she just might find something unique and perfect for the space. Well, look what she found! It was 50% off making it around $120. This piece was actually from Crate and Barrel from a while back. The lines were classic and it was still in beautiful condition. I envisioned it with modern hardware to give it an instant update. She bought the piece and I picked it up in my minivan.
I knew these gorgeous acrylic and brass pulls would completely elevate the cabinet and transform it to have a mid-century vibe. They work well with the other gold accents in Jennifer’s kitchen like her gold faucet and cabinet hardware.
Ready to see her all styled so pretty?
It was like it was always meant to be there! I added a few of my favorite gold frames from Target which include travels to Italy. I took a few of my propagated Pothos and added to this pretty little green vase. The marble tray holds some essentials like the pretty white and gold coffee frother, stainless steel pitcher and copper measuring spoons. The gold mug tree holds some pretty marble cups. Everything is functional yet stylish. The drawers and cabinets hold some of her nicer China along with all the coffee essentials like beans, tea towels, mugs, and other glassware.
If you don’t have space for a piece of furniture, try creating a little station with a shelf or a drawer. Add a pretty tray on the counter for your essentials like a frother, or coffee beans in a cute canister. I swear coffee/tea tastes better when you create a whole experience around it.
What do you think of this coffee station? I hope you found it helpful! As always, thanks for reading. Oh, you can also read about the other wall across from this coffee station where I built some picture ledges and added a gallery wall for my friends.
