We’re Getting A Coffee Bar!

Ok, maybe the title didn’t need an exclamation mark, but I’m a little too excited. You see since we moved in to this farmhouse last June I’ve been wanting a coffee bar in our back living room so bad. The reason I even had the idea to have one was because there was a sink in the back living room in a tiny dresser that I imagine the previous owner used to water her plants or something perfect like that, but all I saw when I saw plumbing in living room… COFFEE BAR. So, here we are, finally starting our coffee bar & I had shared a little sneak peek on social media, but I knew I had to quick pop in here on the blog & share with all of you guys what we are up to even if it’s not done quite yet…

There she is! Ok, so we actually got these two pieces of furniture a long time ago at the beginning of the winter with the intent to make it into a coffee bar. We finally got the chance in the past few weeks to stack the two pieces on top of each other & replace the old dresser/sink combo with this big beautiful baby. I plan to keep coffee mugs in the cupboards above the coffee bar & store coffee & tea items below in the cupboards. The sink was an antique find & DON’T ASK Jose about how hard it was to put that thing in… it wasn’t fun, but it was so worth it. We have no hardware yet, but I’m thinking I need to order this set here…

You can find it [HERE] on Amazon. What do you think of it? I think it will give it that perfect vintage vibe & also be high up enough where I can fit pots/cups under it without struggling. Since the sink is a sideboard sink, I plan to keep the coffee maker on the tray portion & some coffee accessories. I’m sure once we start using the bar it will all fall naturally how we want it organized.

Anyways… we are almost up & running! I want to hang that coffee sign I picked up at our shop, The Found Cottage, above the coffee bar, put in the faucet, & do some more little things & voila.. we will have a coffee bar! When it’s finished & running I will be back on a full post with a tutorial and all the finished details. As you read [HERE] last week we are slowly doing projects in our back living room & this is a big one we can almost check off the list. What do you guys think of our coffee bar so far? Let me know in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram. Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!! xx
