Create Your Own Coffee Bar

Ever wish you had a dedicated area to make your own coffee? Or just a place that you can keep your coffee things within easy reach, but still have it look neat and organized? A coffee bar may be just the solution that you need.

A coffee bar can vary from extremely simple to a bar that is decked out with coffee, tea, and other hot beverage items.

A small buffet or dresser can work as the base for your coffee bar. Then of course you will need your coffee maker  and some shelves above the bar for extra storage,. You will want to have space to store all your coffee related items from your coffee mugs, to your coffee grounds/beans, coffee grinder, etc.

If you need to hide some of your coffee items, then baskets on the shelves will help to keep smaller easily cluttered items organized for you. Mason jars also work well for helping add storage to your coffee bar.

Are you working on your own coffee bar? Already have one? What tips for storage, etc do you have for someone who is starting their own?


  1. I'm actually working on my own right now with a breakfast bar I found on Craigslist really cheap! It's white, so I'm stripping it and staining it espresso. I'm using a coffee towel currently to place my mugs on beside the coffee maker. In the near future, I'm hoping to buy a rod and 3-4 baskets that will hang slightly so they point outward for items such as sugar, silverware (we have a drawer full of plastic silverware), straws, to-go cups, etc. Then for the sugar, we are using an adorable canister I found at Goodwill. All in all, with the staining and stripper, this coffee bar will cost $100. Check out my blog to keep up with it! and in the search type 'coffee bar'.

  2. Thanks for sharing with us Pickle! Will definitely check out your project.
