How to create a rustic coffee station in the kitchen. If you are planning to create a rustic coffee station there are several things that you will need. To get started, gather your coffee supplies and your decorative pieces.
First, to create a rustic coffee station you will need some rustic stuff.
Of course, you need rustic, vintage stuff. Always!!! Some people call it junk or trash. There are several things that will work as a station: a cart, a narrow table, a small desk, a short shelf or whatever your creative mind can dream up.
Mrs. Hackishack had just set this wonderful rolling cart out in her shop. I remember it well. It was December 15th so it was Merry Christmas to me. It was my first Christmas without my Hubby. This purchase certainly did not fill the empty spot but it felt okay to buy myself something special for Christmas. Plus, I had just the right spot for it. It was going right under the coffee cup rack that I built. The instructions are HERE.
THE RUSTIC COFFEE RACK was already finished and hung in place so this little jewel was perfect. It was a perfect size, the perfect price, and the perfect color. Note the empty spot in the rack. I have been hunting for another pot to fill that space.
Next, gather up your coffee supplies
The Keurig Coffee Maker sits on top of a K-cup Storage Drawer. You might prefer a K-cup Carousel.
If you have a vintage sugar dispenser that sure adds a sweet touch. The little red-topped shaker beside the sugar dispenser contains cinnamon.
The artificial sweeteners are in the little white and red cup.
Display your cups or mugs
Even if you are not a DIYer there are several new options to display your mugs on that still have that rustic look: Collection Mug Tree , a 12 Hooks Rustic Wall Mounted Wood Coffee Mug Holder, Kitchen Storage Rack, or racks and s-hooks.
The enamelware cups are cute as all get out but I really don’t like to drink out of them. The cups get way too hot, especially with the Keurig. I purchased some red mugs and white mugs for the mug tree.
The shelves allowed me to move some of my enamelware from various other places to one location on the vintage cart. It is now a collection.
Look around. Do you have some special pieces that you love that are scattered here and there? Would they look better displayed together? Do they look like they will work in your rustic coffee station?
Did you see that empty spot in the photo above?
Yes!!! I found what I was looking for on the trip to Antiques Weekend. It was on my list. It filled that space.
Final touches: signs, plaques or inspirational wall decals
“My Cup Runs Over” is a sign that I painted with just a simple lettering style and a few coffee circles.
The “Coffee and Jesus” sign was purchased at Hobby Lobby.
All I need today is a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus. That, my friend, is a great way to start your day.
Psalm 23: “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.”
May your day start and end with a little bit of coffee and the knowledge that Jesus loves you with an everlasting love. And now it’s time to go and start my day. I think I will go paint something!!!
