The Coffee & Tea Station

Heather Bullard | Coffee Station-201

Adding a coffee station to the kitchen was a given, being that The Man is Italian and pretty much bleeds espresso. He can drink coffee unlike anyone I’ve ever met. I don’t know how he does it.

We positioned it next to the refrigerator and walk-in pantry and it’s turned out to be a good location, with quick easy access to the half & half and skim milk. For the recessed shelf, I decided to use marble in lieu of maple like the cabinets, and had a 2″ mitered edge added to match all the counters.

The drawers and two large pull-out trays below provide plenty of storage for assorted coffees, teas and other accoutrements.

5 Things I’m Loving Right Now

Ikea Paper Shop

1. Oh my gosh…IKEA has a brand new Paper Shop! Aren’t those honeycomb decorations the cutest? My closest store isn’t stocked yet, so I left having a tiny temper tantrum with myself. I also love the black and kraft notebooks and the chunky notepads would be great for a desk. I’m hope they start stocking soon…I want to have a party!
