Kitchen Shelves and A Coffee Station

Hi folks!

This week, I did added a little somethin' somethin' to a blank wall space in our kitchen/dining room between the window and where the kitchen cabinets start. Using this Ana White plan I made 2 two foot shelves to fit the space. I shopped the house and found things to put on the shelves but I am excited for the prospects of holiday decorations going up there when the time comes. (And can I say that this Florida heat is making me want to fast forward to fall!) 
It took me about 3 hours to cut, prep, paint, put together and hang. I am very pleased with the outcome and it ended up being a super cheap project as well; I found some nice looking pieces of lumber for cheaper than I thought would work just as well as the higher priced lumber. The paint I used was Valspar Mark Twain House Brown. (Shout out to the freebie sample coupon in the BH&G mag! ;)) It's a very pretty brown with the slightest smokey taupe hint.
I also wanted to show you my coffee station. I use the Ikea cart for extra storage and to house my K-cups in the top shelf basket. And, I am in love with that mug rack from World Market!
 The shelf after I hung it up. It has four inches of room to put stuff on.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope you enjoy your weekend! :)

Partying With:


  1. G'Day from Oz! I love your gorgeous kitchen-dining area. The shelves look great. That is a very stylish way to store your coffee too-I love it!

    If you have a minute to spare I’d be thrilled if you could pop by and join in with this week's Say G’day Saturday linky party. It has just started and this would be a fabulous addition!

    Best wishes for a great weekend,

  2. Here from the DIY Showoff link party. :) I am in love with this result (and I'm a little biased as a coffee addict). I have the same rack and adore your warm, inviting result. I think if I had such a cute coffee station, I might drink a few too many cups. ;) It would be irresistible!

    1. Don't you just love that coffee rack?! :) I've seen it all over people's blogs and just had to have one when I got my Keurig!

  3. Such a great idea and this looks fabulous. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me.


Thank you for your words, I really do appreciate them!
