To Me, the Smell of Fresh Brewed Coffee Is One Of The Greatest Inventions…

While our kitchen is under construction and we are in the process of putting it back together, I have been generating numerous ideas and additions for that room!  It’s ok Robin, it will be a good thing….

We, Robin and I drink a lot of coffee.  In fact, I have a “coffee station” set up in the master bathroom and wake up to a fresh pot of coffee every morning-thank you baby. However, I am entertaining the thought of setting up a coffee bar in the kitchen. Nothing elaborate maybe something small and quaint.  In the meantime, while trying to convince (I’m sure it won’t be that difficult) my husband this is a great idea…. I would like to share a few ideas and tips with you.


Love the use of the cake stand!: My coffee bar in my kitchen is def the highlight of my morning! @farahmerhi_ check out my personal page for sources. ❤️                                                                                                                                                                                 More:

On the counter is perfect-if you don’t have a large kitchen or extra room for additional furniture.  Organization and lack of clutter is key when using a small area.

Get the farmhouse look in your kitchen with these great finds including an industrial tiered tray filled with blue mason jars Ideas for hot chocolate bar: This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions and comments are 100% mine, I only promote products I believe in. This post was sponsored by Starbucks as pa…: 101 ways to decorate tiered plates... This was one of my faves...Cute for everyday but even cuter for guests.:

Using tiered trays for your necessities add style and an easy glance for restocking.




When having guests, don’t forget those who doesn’t prefer brewed hot coffee but will take an iced coffee – keep quick and easy recipes on hand and be creative when serving – use items such as (recycled Starbucks glass bottles), old fashion milkshake glasses, vintage glasses, milk glass containers to name a few.


Vanilla candles and coffee beans - smells fantastic, perfect for the coffee bar or dessert station: Mason jar candle set - So easy to make! Just buy different sized mason jars, fill with coffee beans and vanilla pillar candles, and tie some rope around the tops for something a little extra. They look great AND your house will smell fantastic!: Place vanilla scented tea lights in a bowl of coffee beans. The warmth of the candles will heat up the coffee beans and make your house smell like french vanilla coffee.  Might drizzle some vanilla extract on the coffee beans, too... This would be lovely in the kitchen

Also, burning vanilla or tropical (pineapple, Hawaiian, mango etc) scented tea candles in coffee beans produce a delightful aroma!  I love the idea of using a wax melt with the fall and tropical scents….yummy!

Cool idea to DIY Old Coffee Cups into Candles: I love the smell of coffee, so I was excited to try the post I've seen where you put coffee beans, in a glass jar, with a vanilla candle. Well, you can imagine my disappointment when all I ended up with was burnt coffee beans.. Lovely. So, I decided to try putting the coffee beans in my wax warmer! I mixed them with the better homes and gardens, Vanilla Caramel Spice scented wax, from Walmart. It works so much better! No burnt beans, and a much stronger scent!:

Another good tip, coffee beans will absorb strong unwanted odors.  I personally can testify this really works – I placed the coffee beans in a glass dish set them in the areas that needed attention, left them for a few days, and repeated if needed.

Just for fun – maybe a cute sign for your coffee bar!
