I blinked and all of a sudden it was back to school time! That means getting back into the morning routine, getting up earlier and packing lunches. (Plus blogging more!) I could do none of this without my old friend coffee. Since the very first thing I do in the morning is stumble into the kitchen to make this magical liquid of life, I have a little tray next to the coffee maker with all essentials like beans, spoons, cups, filters and sugar. It seems I’m not the only one who enjoys the convenience of a coffee station. Here’s a look at some ideas for building your own.

If you don’t have dedicated counter top space, you can use a little rolling cart or a pretty side table, like these below. c5d09102e71eaa3cc3986ddd82742703 new-coffee-cart-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6d8200c970b-800wi_1 home-coffee-station-7 12471bfc62121435b969981bc95f9487 Images Via Pinterest

Here’s my coffee station. Just a simple tray from West Elm with all the essentials.IMG_0643

I’ve got some good designer inspiration posts coming your way very soon along with some project updates of my own. Until then…
