Cafe Cintron

Not that long ago I gave my front door a stellar make over (If you haven’t checked it out yet, click here).  Well, what I forgot to tell you is that I didn’t think a quart of paint would be enough so I got a gallon. Um, wrong. Even for two-three coats for two big doors, I barely made a dent. That can of paint was not cheap so I plan on getting my money’s worth!

A few different coffee stations have been floating around pinterest. Two thoughts immediatly come to my brain: 1) Hey, I love coffee. 2) I want one.

So, coffee bar planning begins. First thing I needed was a cabinet of some sort. Do I build one? Do I buy one? Do I repurpose? Well, thanks for Craigslist I picked up this perfect cabinet for 20 buckaroos. Oh yeahh! It’s adorable. It’s promising. And it’s way too country. The only before picture I have is this crappy cell phone picture.

Cue 50 gallons of left over teal paint. Hubby gave this a good sanding and painted it with a small foam roller. We haven’t sealed it or anything and so far it seems to be holding up fine! The knobs on it were rusty and just not my style, even if I spay painted them. I found a pack of four mercury knobs at homegoods and thought that would be perfect! The handles for the drawers I found at Lowes. I think they have such cute and girly lines which go well with the curvy and girly lines on the bottom of the cabinet.


On top is our keurig, a DELICIOUS candle that smells of baked cookies (but without the calories!), and two storage containers that we keep our sugar and ground coffee.

Above the cabinet, I wanted this shelf but couldn’t bring myself to spend 120.00. Luckily, Homegoods pulled through for me again! I got this one for $90 less!! Oh, it feels SO good to get a deal like that!! In there, I keep my k-cups and hide my “vintage” thermomater.

Here is a complete view:

What do you think? I love it! The only thing I have to do is get the right size hinges for the cabinet doors and she’ll be all done! Will you be creating a coffee bar soon?
