During the summer when I was traveling with my family, everyone wanted to get out of the car and stretch their legs, so we stopped at a little coffee shop.
The owners of the coffee shop had done an amazing job designing the interior and styling the space.
The walls were chalkboards filled with chalkboard art and their menu.
One wall was filled with coffee merchandise displayed on gorgeous rustic wooden shelves, and a display case was filled with fresh baked goods that were calling my name.
It had such wonderful ambiance, I hated to leave.
Fast-forward a few months…
My daughter leaves for work early in the morning and starts her coffee maker as soon as she wakes up, so it’s ready by the time she gets out of the shower.
She decided to rearrange her room this week and asked if I’d help her make a coffee station.
I remembered that little coffee shop with the wonderful atmosphere, so I made one for her with the same rustic kind of charm.
I used a thick piece of salvaged wood as the base for the shelf.
I attached two pipe fitting shelf brackets (affiliate link) onto the wood. These brackets are so much easier than finding the individual pieces from a home improvement store and assembling them. You only have to screw in twelve screws with these (six on the shelf and six on the wall).
I gave her a few of my vintage fryer baskets to hold coffee supplies.
A few hooks were attached to the front to hold mugs, then the brackets were screwed into the wall.
She is thrilled to have her own fully stocked coffee shop in her bedroom now. And it took less than 30 minutes to put together!
She couldn’t wait to brew her first cup, so let’s talk about that coffee…
Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods are made from milk, have no artificial flavors, and come in three signature flavors (Caramel, Mocha, Vanilla) and two seasonal flavors (Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Mocha).
There is a two-step process to make the beverage.
First, pour the flavor packet into your mug and fill the water reservoir with water.
Then brew the Starbucks® Caffè Blend K-Cup® pod in your Keurig® brewer and stir.
Now kick back and enjoy your own coffee shop at home! 🙂
P.S. – The vintage style coffee shop sign is available in both red and blue as free printables here.
My thanks to Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods. My daughter loves them as much as she loves her new coffee station. 🙂
