10 Beverage Bars + Mine

This is such a lovely use of space, and well-organized as well. Go to the source and see for yourself. It is stunning!



This is my coffee bar now. I took the red Keurig off. Something is wrong with it and it isn't working.  


This is the wall of coffee mugs above it. It's really hard to take a photo in this small space.


There are so many ways to set up a beverage bar. Using a piece of furniture you already have is the easiest way of course.

I love the industrial cart used here by Style Me Pretty Living. Amazing how popular these have become, these kitchen carts of old.

Apartment Therapy seldom fails to impress me with their organization and style.


Ah, this one is a work of art from Artsy Chicks Rule.

Love the holiday cocoa bars.

Great to have one on the porch for those cold days outside.

And of course Better Homes & Gardens, one of my favorite go-to sources of inspiration, has a beauty here. 

There are many magazines with an online presence, but I've found that BHG is a very well organized and easy to navigate site, which is why I visit it quite often!

Love the blue buffet and the addition of shelves on the brick wall.

Look at this one from Midwest Living. So bright and light and cheerful.

The Cottage Market has a bevy of wonderful sources. Go there to be inspired.

Whether your beverage of choice is coffee or tea or cocoa or soda, there are ways to organize an area especially for your own personal needs. I think everywhere I land, I shall always have a coffee bar!

    1. I like having everything I need in one spot. All I need after my coffee is done is creamer and sugar.

  6. Love that second photo. I have enjoyed my coffee station for six years now. A great idea that came out of blogland. So nice to have it all in one place. I'm so sorry to hear you never got the keurig up and running. I can't live without mine and don't even own a regular coffee maker anymore.

    1. About that Keurig.... Have you tried running white vinegar through it, and/or poking the "drip hole" with a push pin or opened paper clip? Those tricks cured mine a few months back. The Keurig website may have more info.

  7. And I've got some K-cups left. I've worked and worked on it. And you know there's no place to take it to fix it. I haven't even had it much over two years, I don't think.

    1. I've had my two. But this afternoon I'm going to try the carton of iced coffee I treated myself to at Walmart.

  9. I have read that if you contact them, you might only have to send in the part where the K cups go (that removable part) and they may send you a whole new pot. Hope that helps.

    1. Do contact their Customer Service line and talk to someone. We have been baffled a few times w/ ours, and when we gave them a call, they walked us through a suggestion which became the solution. Their CS is truly great!

  10. I just can't get over the turquoise buffet with shelving... I'm swooning over that one.
    Now... let's see...sell the dryer, move the deep freeze, find the perfect piece and paint! That's all I need to do....yeah, and then it will be perfect!
    See you later...I've got work to do!

  11. I might have mentioned this before, but we have one of those old Maxwell House coffee cans, never opened and still filled with coffee. My husband found it years ago when his grandparents' garage was being cleaned out. Someone was going to toss it out, but he brought it home. We use it as a decoration in the kitchen, and we won't open it. But personally, I like how you are using your can, to hold filters. That seems better than using it to hold ancient coffee!

    1. I sure hope no one comes over and you're not in the kitchen and they open that coffee and start the coffee maker with it! Wonder how it would taste?

    1. That platter came from Hobby Lobby on one of their 80% off aisles. It was really cheap!
