Coffee Bar made fun


I'm a big coffee drinker.  I love everything about it.  The smell, the warmth, the coziness, the vibrancy and of course the taste.  I love to get whole beans and grind them each morning for a fresh pot of coffee.  My favorite coffee is Mushers Blend by North Pole Roasting Company (made here in Alaska).  It's a beautiful blend of light and dark roasted beans.  Yummm!

Anyway, I made this little coffee bar earlier this year with a cute bamboo tray from Kohls.  The tray holds my coffee maker, burr grinder and a jar with beans.  

The tray color just wasn't doing it for me, so in came the paint.

BEFORE:



AFTER:
 
My sister sent me this cute sign from World Market

I'm loving the new look.  The tray got 2 coats of Old White ASCP.  The letters on the front were created with a stencil and charcoal acrylic paint and then sanded for a little softer look.  I topped the whole thing with 3 coats of Polycrylic to make it liquid resistant.

It's just a little more fun to make my coffee in the morning.
