Farmhouse Tour: Coffee Bar



I love coffee so much, I knew I wanted a dedicated spot in my home for the lovely black (in my case more like tan) liquid that keeps me running. I wanted to create a space that not only flowed with our farmhouse look but was also functional.


We currently don't have enough counter space or a place with electrical outlets for our coffee bar in the kitchen. My next option was in the dining room. I wanted to make sure that the area looked cohesive and was not just a random table with a Keurig on top. We found the perfect compromise, a buffet table. The top would function perfectly for our coffee bar, and we could also display dishes and glasses in the cabinets below. We definitely splurged on this buffet table, but it was worth it. The quality is great, it goes perfectly with the farmhouse look, and it is a classic piece that we can keep redecorating if we choose over the years. 


Before I moved in with my husband, you could obviously tell this was a bachelor pad. In the dining room area where the buffet/coffee bar now sits was a couch and a popcorn maker. The perfect accessories in any dining area lol, so this was a major upgrade. 



I wanted our coffee bar look to include wood elements along with white and turquoise touches. All the accessories in our kitchen are mostly turquoise among the neutral palette; I wanted the coffee bar to blend with that. One of my favorite pieces in this area is the converted palette mug holder. I found this at a local craft fair, but I’m sure you could make this as a DIY project. I love collecting souvenir mugs and this is the perfect spot to display them.


I hope this inspires you to make your own perfect coffee bar! I'm looking forward to decorating it for each season and holiday! Pictures (some with our fall decor) and links below:
