{Home} Coffee Station

2 weeks ago Natasha of Natasha In Oz linked up her at home coffee station to Show & Share. It was awesome! And inspiring! I am the only coffee drinker in my house and until now I've always been a seasonal in cold weather and cold in hot weather.  Here lately though I've been drinking hot........which in my mind means I might be getting old. Nah! So if I'm going to drink year round then why not fix up a station?

Having limited space for a station, I wanted some type of tray to hold a sugar and creamer set and a coffee canister.  And I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money doing this either.  So of course this meant a trip to Goodwill.  I had in my mind of what sugar/creamer set to get but thought maybe Goodwill might have something cool. Didn't find a set but I did find a wire basket ($1.50) and a cute scalloped dish ($2.00).  I figured the dish wouldn't be big enough but it was so unique that I couldn't pass it up and I wound up having the perfect use for it that I'll get to in a minute!

So after Goodwill off to Pier 1 for a sugar and creamer set I went.  I first saw a similar set at Crate and Barrel but like the Pier 1's just as well. They were $5 each.  Next Target for the coffee canister, which I decided on just so I could be done with creating a station.  It was about $12 which was a little more than I wanted to spend but it's a cool little canister! And that's it!
As you can see....not much space. The wire basket was a perfect fit!!
Filters and mugs are in cabinet above so now everything is on the same side of the kitchen!

So this station is not the only thing I've added to my kitchen.  About a month ago I found a plate stand at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $6 and wanted to use it on the counter.  Well so I needed some plates for it and found some on clearance ($2 each) at Walmart that fit perfect!

And here's my scalloped dish!  I've been wanting something for this purpose!!

I'm loving these additions and the coffee station!

Anyone else have a coffee station?

Happy Thursday!!
